The bronze lenses are not too dark - you can play until pretty late in the evening with them, or on overcast days.

And they are not so dark that the ball looks like a black blob the way it does with really dark sunglass lenses.
CharlieFederer, how do you think the bronze compares to the Gold Iridium and Fire Iridium?

I also have the brown Flackjacket XLJ with clear presecription lenses and I'm looking to get tinted lenses with venting for the summer. I don't want something that distorts the colors or makes it too dark to see the ball clearly if it suddenly becomes cloudy.
