I picked up a pair of Smith Phenoms from Sierrasnowboards for $33. It came with the RC36 lens, so now I need a night lens. Which lens should I get, Clear(84%VLT), Yellow(68%VLT), Sensor Mirror(70%VLT), or Gold Mirror(70%VLT)?
I was thinking to go with clear, but I want a lens that will be good on those low light snowy days too.
I have mirror lenses and I love them. I like that they reduce glare and they even out the light when it is dark. It can be weird because shadows are lighter and it makes it a little harder to see where some dips are, but it really highlights the really dark places. I have never used another lens though, so I can't comment on anything else.
I am thinking that I shall go with the Sensor Mirror then. It is a light rose tint. I just don't know if it is worth the extra $20 over the yellow or clear. Those are $25 while the sensor and gold mirror are $45.
