Greys G3 Sunglasses
Greys G3 sunglasses are the ultimate fishing sunglasses featuring the best possible materials at an affordable price. They are a step up from the other models in the 'G' range and feature better lines and styling. All of Greys' frames contain a high degree of biomaterial, which has a much lower carbon footprint. The lenses are all polarised shatterproof polycarbonate and feature a hydrophobic material which reduces water spots and makes for much easier cleaning. The lenses minimise glare significantly, provide maximum UV protection, and the anti-reflective back coating reduces glare reflecting off the back of the glasses which reduces eye strain.
Greys G3 are very stylish and come in three different colour configurations: Gloss black fade frames with blue mirror lenses; matte carbon frames with green mirror lenses; or gloss black frames with green/grey lenses. The robust plastic frames feature the Greys logo on the side and are extremely strong and hard wearing. They come in a sturdy case with a cloth bag for additional protection. They are a modern, stylish design that will resonate with a lot of anglers and can be worn on or away from the water.
Polycarbonate offers exceptional transparency, excellent toughness, thermal stability and is one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics. Polycarbonate is used in compact discs, riot shields, glazing and safety helmets. It is strong and stiff and can maintain rigidity up to 140 degrees and toughness down to -20 degrees. Buying a pair of Polycarbonate lens sunglasses is a much better investment than buying plain plastic lenses.
Fishermen have always used polarised sunglasses for years. They reduce glare from the water and ultimately allow you to spot fish moving. Glare off the water produces eye strain, and you don't want to be fishing with a sore head, so wearing a pair of polarised sunglasses will reduce stress on the eyes and make the whole experience much more relaxing. Polarised lenses contain a particular filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, ultimately, reducing glare.
By reducing glare off the water, you get to see under the surface of the water. This can be beneficial for many reasons. Spotting fish is the number one advantage. However, it's also useful to see obstructions, weed, and snags. Being able to detect potential underwater hazards can help you avoid disasters like losing your line, snapping your rod, losing tackle, or worse still, losing fish!
Sighting fish is a significant advantage and can help you be a more productive fisherman. Anglers of all specialisms can benefit including Trout, Salmon, and Sea. Pike fishers can spot specimens or Jacks lurking in the margins and know where to plop their lure; Bonefish anglers fishing from a barge can locate a potential target and know where to cast their fly, and river Trout fishermen can see fish feeding in slack water. Therefore there is no mistaking the vast advantages of wearing polarised sunglasses.
In addition to the distinct fishing-spotting advantages, and strain reduction, there is also the eye-protection factor to consider. Fishing with sharp hooks can be dangerous, and all it takes is a sudden change of wind direction, a bad cast, or an error on your boat partners part to send a hook barb into, or around, your eye. This could be catastrophic and could lead to vision or eye loss! Therefore, in general, it is always advisable to wear eye protection when fishing.
Another critical feature of wearing fishing sunglasses is the protection from the Sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays. UVB is responsible for causing sunburn and can quickly damage eye tissue with prolonged and unprotected exposure. UVA can damage eyesight over an extended period also.
Therefore it is not advisable to take your eye care for granted. The goal is to continue fishing for years on end in safety and comfort. Wearing a pair of Greys G3 sunglasses is a small investment, but the benefits are insurmountable.
