Costa Green mirror or amber?
 
I'm about to buy some blackfins for fishing in Colorado, but what would be better? Green mirror 580's or amber 580's? What are the differences since the green mirror is an amber lense?

I'll take Amber Lenses any day over a darker shade.

I just broke one of my lenses and sent them off to be replaced. I'm going from green mirrored to grey lenses. Other than being broke I liked them but decided grey was better for me. One less thing that stands out when fishing. Personal preference.

I have a pair of Costas with the silver mirror 580 and they are the best pair of fishing glasses I've owned. The base color is copper and is great for sunny days but also overcast days and evening fishing. I'd highly recommend this lens.

I have the green mirror 580g costas and never new that glasses could help you see fish so easily. I tried on the green mirror and amber and I could honsetly not tell the difference outside on a sunny day.

I sent a query into Costa and will reply here once they let me know. They could vary the tint visually or may be for style but hopefully they'll let us know.
