LAHAINA, Hawaii, Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fishing is a game of being in the right place, at the right time, with the right gear. What you choose for your loadout could make the difference between a successful day on the water and another story of "one that got away."
One bit of gear nearly every angler uses yet maybe takes for granted are sunglasses. But when it comes to fishing sunglasses, what separates a good pair from a great pair?
First, the best fishing sunglasses will always be polarized. Polarization eliminates glare reflecting off of the water, helping to better show what's happening under the surface. Also remember that not all polarization is created equal. Some sunglasses that claim to be polarized may only block 20-30% of glare. Other more premium polarized sunglasses block glare more efficiently.
Maui Jim Sunglasses, for example, feature their patented PolarizedPlus2® technology, eliminating 99.9% of glare a using high-efficiency, proprietary polarizing film. Maui Jim's lens materials also stand out. Their SuperThin Glass, for example, is 20% lighter than standard glass and is saltwater resistant, so the lenses won't peel after too much time at sea. Add it all up, and Maui Jim Sunglasses offer anglers unmatched color, clarity and detail.
It's also important to have the correct lens color to match the conditions. Days with varying conditions, from overcast to sunny, are best suited for more versatile lens colors, such as Maui Jim's HCL® Bronze, Maui HT®or MauiRose®. For days where the sun is on blast, a darker lens color like Maui Jim's Neutral Grey is your best bet.
Another obvious reason any angler should wear quality sunglasses is eye protection. Maui Jim's block 100% of harmful UV rays from the eyes and surrounding areas, and are the only premium sunglasses to have the Skin Cancer Foundation's Seal of Recommendation.
Finally, because accidents happen, choosing a sunglass backed by a stout warranty never hurts. Maui Jim's two-year warranty and unparalleled customer service, even after the warranty expires, can help ease your fears of the occasional mishap.
So before hitting the water on your next fishing adventure, be sure to pack a quality pair of sunglasses like Maui Jims. The difference they can make will be crystal clear!
