|paras||@JoEr & Qball: Okay I see what you mean. I think I'll end up choosing the Green Sol-X mainly because I'll get more use out of it on those bright days - unless I can get both at a good price Thanks for the tips guys!|

Wow, awesome advice guys!
@JoeR: I think I may be confusing the meaning of "flat-light" - I thought flat-light is when light appears to come from every possible direction. I used to board mainly at night. The last few times I went in the day, there are no shadows and everything is evenly lit. If that's what you mean by flat-light, I guess my sensor mirror is failing me, unless there's too much light getting through for my eyes to handle.
I'm definitely wanting to get a pair of the Green Sol-X. Curious as to how much 'blue' (if any) it reflects...cause it's a rainbow green...saw some blue reflection on the sides.
Definitely going to check them out at the store.

|qwezxc12||FWIW, I like the Igniter for sunny days, and the Sensor for overcast/flat conditions... which in the NE is too often, unfortunately. I don't swap lenses... I picked up a second pair of Phenoms with the Sensor lens at TJ Maxx for $39.00|

|drunkinmonk||i have all 3 of them and the sensor. I normally just use two out of the 4 manly the greenx sunny days then my sensor flat,cloudy, snowy and night conditions. Sensor is normally on my IO for 80 percent of the time. I mainly ride at night. Platinum and ignitor i cant see too much difference.|

|buggravy||I've got all of the lenses in question, and I'd recommend either the Platinum Mirror or Green Sol-X for a bluebird/mostly sunny conditions lens. The Ignitor is probably the best general purpose, but since you've already got the Sensor I'd go with either of the 2 I mentioned above.|

|Qball||I use the platinum mirror for sunny/partly cloudy day but also work fine on overcast days if there's no fog. The sensor mirror is best for flat light stormy days|
