I'm interested in trying them out after bring an Oakley guy for a while.
Is there a frame/ lens combo that's ideal for golf and similar to  XLJ/prizm combo?

Very similar and I guess the bronze lens is the golf lense?

I have a pair with ChromaPop and I really enjoy golfing in these. I've had Oakley, UA, Nike, Arnette etc. IMO this has the best picture.

I have tried a dozen brands over twenty years and the past five have netted me six pairs of SMITH in my locker @ work. The latest pair is Parallel D MAX. Ran em' over with my John Deere  and they were unphased.

The Ignitor lens looks like it's for low light, but I could be wrong. I have three pair with ChromaPop and think they are great. One green/gray, one blue mirror and one green mirror. I have no preference wearing them, but think the balance between cutting glare and looking bright is perfect.
