I also was having trouble picking lens colour for my new purchase. I ended up getting the red tonics, and absolutely love them. Fish mainly salt but that could be a dirty estuary or a big blue ocean ledge so went for the red as a all rounder. Recent trip in a weeded up estuary mate had brown makos on, they weren’t in the same class as the tonic’s

I've tried Mako's (blue tinge) and Spotters (brown lens).
They are all ok but years ago I had a pair of "snow" sunnies that were polarised and had a yellow lens.
They were the best, it was like life was coloured with a Fluor highlighter pen.
Next time I shop for fishing sunnies I'll try for a yellow lens, theory is if I'm trying to look into less clear water, the yellow polarised lens will help make any contrast pop.

Pretty cool! I assume that's the kind of **** used in welding goggles and stuff?

Make a difference when looking into water or bit of a marketing gimmick?

They are pretty darn good. And make for great driving glasses too. I’ve never had a problem with them. Especially as the light starts to fade.

i have the specsavers equivalent of those because i need prescription glasses.
they work very well and adjust the tint on the sunnies as light fades or increases..
Interestingly enough
I just also got a new pair of standard prescription lenses for everyday use.
I also added an extra feature called transitions vantage.
Essentially its transition lense, but also polarise when they darken. (this extra option is $200 on its own)
Only just got them so haven’t been able to test it out properly yet.
If it works well enough then I can replace my polarised prescription sunnies with these next time I need to update them.…

With you there, I have a pair Chromatic (brown) lens raybans that cut through water/light like anything. I reckon those spotters will be the one, sticking with the brown lenses!

What model raybans do the chromatic lenses out of curiosity? Or can you get them in any
