Dudes,

I have a question... in the attached pictures, I have Prizm Ruby Polarized in the Holbrooks and regular Prizm Ruby in the Flaks. The outside tints look pretty close, the polarized ones have a deeper purple in the center than the non-polarized. Cool. But can someone explain why the tints looking through are so different?! Non-polarized is blueish green while the polarized is a bronze.

Does the curvature of the lens really make that much of a difference?

I have prism ruby in my Holbrook XS. This is what it looks like

It would be strange if it was the base curve that was the difference or even polarised vs non polarised

I have ruby polarized holbrooks and prizm ruby polarized holbrooks. I got prizm ruby on the way...I’ll check to see if there is a difference.

also, I had a set of prizm sapphire and a set of prizm sapphire polarized Holbrook lenses and they were in fact different tints like your Ruby’s. I heard that the polarization changes the tint or something like that.

not sure if I got a pic still
EDIT: Prizm Sapphire/Prizm Sapphire Polars different?!

also, I love the blue tint from the original ruby lenses.
