    just wondering what lens is truly red, or as close to it as possible. i used to think it would be positive red iridium. mostly due to the name. but it looks more blue/purple than red. i figure maybe ruby iridium? fire looks like it has too much yellow in it.

    this lens is made by visionary lenses, but this is kind of what i'm looking for. its called fire red

    thanks alot.

    what i would like to do is customize some frames. probably a black frame with red lenses, red icons and some red ear socks. or maybe even a red frame with red lenses, black icons and black ear socks. but i would like the red to flow well and the shades to match as close as possible.

    Ruby is the more red of those mentioned, however different batches look different. I recently picked up a pair of limited red/blue fuel cells and the ruby iridium lenses are stunningly red and beautiful.
