Costa Del Mar Green Mirror or Silver Mirror lens?

Recommended Posts

Copper or Amber.  Sorry, it's not one of the two you listed IMO.

Of the two, silver mirror.

But yes, copper or amber would be a better fit for an all-around lens.

Both the silver mirror and green mirror are copper based lenses with a different coating. I just picked up a pair of green mirrors because I could not find silver mirrors in the frame I wanted. I guess I would have to go with the silver mirror if given the option, but my green mirrors are fantastic and you will not be dissapointed with either.

Before plopping down your hard earned money for retail Costas's check out the site steepandcheap.com. I just got a pair of $179 retail Costa's for $70 shipped from them. You have to check often but you can get some great deals.

If your purely looking for spot fishing I would go with Amber.  I have a set of blue mirrors and love them for an all around lens.

The green mirror is copper-base in the 580, amber in the 400.

The mirrored lenses transmit about 10% less light than the non-mirrored lens.  My next pair will probably be silver mirror, but I don't think I could find a better all-around lens than the amber 400.
