I've owned (in order) Smith Bazookas chrome, (i think) Oakley Twenty'*, fire/silver (dissapeared from the car ), Smith Boomerangs red (left in a porsche @ car show), and The new Smith Diablo'*.

The oakley'* were nice, but 120 bux, and no better optics then the smiths. Coudnl't change the lenses either. My new glasses are on closeout @ nashbar.com right now for $50...



These have the best wind coverage of any I have owned, and don't fall off at all.

I found the name of mine at the Oakley site for $160, "half jackets" with polarized iridium lens.

Heh..I have 7 pairs of sunglasses, with a combined retail value of $120. I was discouraged by Oakleys when my friends used to break all the time. Then he would have to ship it to Georgia to get it fixed Twice!

Oarkleys suit me just fine. I couldnt imagine $180 dollars on specs and have em dropped, or scratched or stolen.
