I use to have the polys. This time I went with the glass. IMO stick with the glass. I like them 100 times better. They seem more rugged and clearer imo.

I bought the glass used them for a week and took them back. I couldn't see my gps with them on.

I have a pair of the glass. Wouldn't know what the polys are like, but I have heard that the glass have much better optical quality. I love mine to death

Polycarbonate scratches just by looking at it, glass doesn´t.

I have worn a buddy's poly 580s a few times and they were ok. My Fisch w 580 green mirror glass came in last night and I fished with them on this morning. WOAH...glad I went glass!

Not to thread jack here, but to avoid watching my 580s sink like Morelures, does anybody have sunglass retainer suggestions? Croakies, Cablz, etc

I was looking for the same thing a while back. Most people told me Cablz, but I found that the Croakies ARC system is even better. similar to cablz, but improved.

Glass is optically superior PERIOD, poly is lighter and IMPACT resistant. I have a pair of 580 Fisherman boat glasses in amber, but end up just wearing my Tropic Star Costa's with interchangeable lenses most of the time.

I went with the Polycarbonate 580 in grey. The pair I lost was the 580 green mirror glass (great for tannic water). I think the glass was a little clearer, but it may have been the green mirror that made the tannic water look good that I fish often.

The Polycarbonate is allot lighter and you can tell the difference when wearing them all day. And I like the fact that if I’m running down the river they have a better impact resistance rate. I also saved a little chunk of money, so over all I am happy with them.

I would buy either one again, the glass or the Poly.

And I also bought one of those goofy looking straps, that I will never call “goofy” again!

I've noticed some types of screens you can't see well with polarized glasses. For instance it's hard to read the digital screen at a gas pump with them on. I think that's with all polarized glasses though.
