Default Costa del mar lens color?

For you all that fish the salt and use costa del mar 580g glasses. What lenses do you prefer. The green mirror of the blue mirror?

The green mirror are amber lens color and the blue mirror are gray. Amber is usually better for inshore and nearshore sight casting.

Get the gray base. I fish the green/amber. Great lenses but I'd want something darker off shore. I find the green lens to be spectacular fishing inshore street, rivers and creeks.

I have both the green and the blue mirrored lenses. I had the blue first, and thought they were great. Now that I have the green, I hardly ever wear the blue.

having been a charter Capt for over a quarter century and fishing the Chesapeake bay and all offshore and inshore waters all the way down to Key west, almost all charter capts use amber for inshore and the blue grey for offshore "blue water" fishing and before spending $$$$$$ for Costas ( I gave my Costas away a long time ago) look into "FLYING FISHERMAN GLASSES' they are in Tavernier Fl (middle keys)...it is all I have worn for over 15 years

just my opinion also the owners, Pat and Linda are great people to deal with

The blue water suggestions are right on, but if you're hitting the flats, it's rose colored glasses for me. Sorta gay I suppose, but they are sure hard to beat for performance.
