I have not found any solid information online about this.
 
I am planning on getting Oakley Holbrooks, I want to use them for casual/stylish use and for freshwater fishing. They do not have shallow water lens for them without customization, which I do not want to do since I can get these Oakley's normally at 25% off. 
So I am either thinking the regular darker polarized Ice Iridium polarized at 10% light transmission with neutral contrast or the Prizm Sapphire polarized with 12% light transmission and increased contrast. I read the Prizm Sapphire is great for everyday use and they seem like they would be great for fishing too with the increase in contrast. But I do like darker lenses such as the Ice Iridium generally, and have a very positive experience with the regular HDpolarized. Please let me know what would be best for fishing SHALLOW water such as ponds and lakes. Or if a different lens might work well too!
Stuck on Oakley Holbrooks, so I do not want to hear any other brand, Thanks

If I was in your shoes, I'd go with the darker of the lenses. That being said, we are Oakley® dealers and I don't wear Oakleys.

Here's my experience with Oakleys.  I started out with dark grey and a blue mirror tint.  Good glasses for all around use.  My glasses are Rx Oakleys.  As the old saying goes, "A jack of all trades is a master of none."  I found they were great for driving and all around use in the boat but when it came to bed fishing they were lacking.  I just got new ones after 4 years and this time I went with copper lenses.  Dark enough for all around use but better suited for bed fishing and water penetration.  My big bed fishing trip is May, I'll know if I made the right decision then.
