Have sapphire as well as positive red and slate iridium. Just not a fan of g30 and prizm lens. Would sapphire be a good lens on the course

I have the prizm outfield. Not as strong contrast as prizm golf or g30 and is good in full sun. But it's not neutral.

I really like the Transitions lens but I don't think it's available for all models. Glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like the Prizm lenses makes me feel dizzy almost. BB

I used to use Black Iridium Polarized with no issues on the course. I have moved to the g30 polarized with no issue. I think it will be a personal preference thing but i think any will work well for you.

I drop the 2 iron or one of the other UDI's based on course.

That's great to hear, at least one positive thing haha. So are the golf lenses worth it over just the black iridium polarized?

When I was ordering I saw they had a black iridium polarized and then like a 45 black iridium polarized.....any idea the difference?

You will like them, everyone has a preference...I have my regular sunglasses for daily use, but my prizms can be worn in a variety of lighting as they aren’t very dark but do provide protection, and work great on course for me. Guess everyone is going to have a choice as there are many options

*also can say for me prizm worked better than polarized and g30 (if that’s the golf specific) for some reason polarized doesn’t work well on course for me.

Polarized lenses are awful for golf. People usually have slight depth perception issues with them.  The prizm golf, baseball and dark golf are great lenses. Also great for skiing/boarding imo
