Hi Mken

I've used polarized glasses for years and find that it's really helpful. I suggest you make sure to buy sunglasses with glass lenses and not plastic. I've had my Maui Jim polarized glasses for seven years now and they still look brand new.

The one I use is shown in the link below.

Which lens colour? Depends on whether you will be fishing low light conditions. If you do then amber lenses will be a better choice. I prefer dark lenses since I use the same glasses for driving etc.

In India, polaroid makes polarized sunglasses and they are quite good. If you fancy ordering it from abroad then there is a huge selection available at discounted prices, check the link below.

Mahaseerken,

These days I never leave home without them. I have regular black tinted glasses made by 'Polaroid'. They're a real boon espcially while trying to spot bait schools, when there's a lot of glare.

Hi,

I had bought a polaroid glass on 2000 for 1900/- from Ansal Plaza in Delhi. It is still working fine though the lenses tend to come out after every day use for a period of seven years.

Last November I bought a new pair of the same company and from the same place for 3800/-

But I still like the old one as the shape and fit is very good. I bought the new pair for angling only.

Now a days even fasttrack glasses from Timex have polarized lenses. And they are cheaper also.

Cheers,
Apoo

Hi All,

I have a few pairs, I even use night driving glasses in low light conditions.

The most interesting pair of glasses I have is a pair of glasses I have is a pair where you can controll the amount of light you can let in, so depending on how bright or dull it is you adjust the glasses accordingly.

Maybe you are right, as all the polarized glasses are priced from 2000/- and above and only fasttrack was was selling at that rate. I have not tried them yet.
