Totally Lin, the one thing the VZ's have though is just that extra tit of space on the lower outside corners of the cheek...

I impulsed on some M2's and thought I could live with the tunnel vision, but then realized that if the goggles move slightly the foam digs right into my eye ball (giant head).

Perhaps I'll try the I/OX or Flight Decks, any experiences would be awesome...

linvillegorge I ditched my Fishbowls for the new Smith I/O7s. Peripheral view seems about equal and that's what matters. Part of the reason why the Fishbowls are so big is their height. There's a lot of wasted lens up there that you just don't get any benefit from.

Agree with you on the VZ lens quality. It's so/so at best. The Fishbowls were great when they first came out, but they've been blown away in recent years.

booron Sorry to gravedig here, but just wondering if any of you fishbowl guys have found anything with a bigger field of view In the last couple years. I've been using them for 2 years now and I'm sick of the lens quality and the stone age method of changing them.

linvillegorge I love my Fishbowl, and but they're so big I've yet to find a helmet that works well with them.

509Trevor havent personally ridden with them but have had a couple friends express their displeasure with the lenses. Saying they scratch very easily and the mirroring comes off. because of this I steer customers away from VZ. also when you put on the VZs and look at a light you can see the light twice and I can see the reflection of my own eyes in the lens, personally hate it. I sell and ride with EG2s

linvillegorge Just tried a pair on in the store. Peripheral vision was unbelievable. Seriously, like not even wearing goggles at all. I thought the Smith I/Os were gonna be my next goggles, but I don't think so now.

I don't like how the Fishbowls look being so huge and all, but fuck it, I love the peripheral view.

itskearny i got them, fit and vision is great and i love it. but there is one thing that troubled me when i hit the mountains for the first time this season. there seems to be air bubbles in between the lenses? it was before i started riding, saw them when buying the tix. anyone have this problem with other goggles? or is it just this one in particular?
