    NE1for10is? Semi-Pro

    Update: The new VR28 Oakley rx lenses came in yesterday and I played a match with them for the first time today. (I have to preface this by saying that before this I've never been a particularly keen on sunglasses for tennis, as I like seeing clearly, so I was concerned I might not like playing in tinted lenses.)

    It was a bright sunny day today and the lenses were absolutely great. I love them. Not too dark, I could see the ball clearly, no glare and no color distortions. Definately worth the investment.

    My opponent was complaining after the match about serving into the sun, and frankly I didn't even notice the sun and never had any issue serving. (I won 6-2, 6-2)

    They also look pretty cool. They're predominantly brown, and there is a slight pink hue, which I'm told is the reason the yellow ball stands out, and they look good with the brown frames.

    Here's pic of them:

    Interesting. How much did you pay? I've got some Bolle Parole with the RX adapter coming in later this week. I'll let you know how they work out. A little nervous spending that money if they don't work out.

    I've been wearing the Oakley Jacknife model for many years and they work well for tennis. I have a strong prescription and have no issues. I order them online at Planet Optics for 360 dollars all in. The lenses are from Oakley. There are also extra earpieces available if they wear out over time.
