Which Maui Jim Rimless for tennis
Hi all,

Read a lot of thread regarding sunglasses on Talk tennis forum, I made a conclusion to get Maui Jim's sunglasses.

I went to their website to get more information, I sorted out the sunglasses based on rimless and tennis.

Here is the result:

At first I love the large size Big beach (maui evolution lens) but found out that others (mala, nakalele & olowalu) use newer lens (maui pure).

perhaps any of you can shed some light which to get or maybe some review?

Holy Maui Wowie! $300+ for a couple of pieces of plastic attached by wire??? What are they smoking?

I'll stick with Oaks or Bolle when the next buy happens.

I was also Holy Maui Wowie at first.
I went to about 5 shops that sell Oakley and Maui jim. Suprisingly all 5 shops recommend Maui Jim.

This is what they said:
-MJ has better lens
-MJ frame is lighter but of course less impact resistant

Last time I got an Oakley, the paint peel off after sometimes, I think because of the sun and salt water/sweat.
I hope MJ will do better with saltwater (According to the website).

Oakley is about $260 for polarize lens, I can get MJ around $300 so it's $40 extra only (Don't refer to the website price, too expensive).

Allright, back to the main topic. Anyone can tell me what it the different between Maui Pure and Maui evolution? Any review?

thanks again
