The Difference in polarized lenses
Have you ever been fishing with someone and every minute or so they are like ” There’s one, and another, how do you not see that? ” and you cant see what the heck they are talking about? Well here is a quick rundown on how polarized glasses allow you to see what’s going on down below so well.
What does it mean when your sunglasses are polarized?
- It’s just an extra step at the end of the manufacturing process, where a coating of vertical stripes is applied to the lens. This is because light is almost always reflected off of surfaces in a horizontal polarization
How does a good pair give an angler the advantage?
- When light bounces off a flat surface, such as a lake, the horizontal light is seen as glare. Polarized lenses are made using a special optical filter which absorbs the horizontal component of light while only the vertical component travels through. As a result, reflected light is eliminated and eye strain is reduced.
Which color lenses are best for which conditions?
1. Blue Mirror – Bright sunny days in reflective water, great for deep water too.
2. Green Mirror – Fishing in shore, flats, and sight fishing
3. Grey Mirror – Great for overcast days
4. Copper Silver Mirror – Most Versatile, great for cloudy days and sight fishing
