Phenoms should be great. I just got a pair, haven't used em yet though. They seem like they'll be awesome tho.

I saw today Dragon APX Japan DAP - Red Ionized 2013. What you think of this model? This model is 140€. I can wait 2 months and get the money..the question is will worth it? I don't know which one is better and look better because in my city I can only order it. So please tell me will worth to wait and buy Dragon APX Japan or to buy Smith Phenom? I want to look good too so what you think?

A lot of thank's for helping me guys!

The Dragon image isn't loading for me but the Phenoms look pretty sick. I also think Smith is widely considered a better brand than Dragon although I don't know from personal experience.

Really should try them on if possible. And with your helmet (if you have one).

I wear dragon goggles (I own the APX) I like them but what mikez said is completely true, you should try them on. Smith goggles dont work for how my face is shaped :/ Anyhow you can order whichever pair you want more, try it on and if you dont like it just return it.

I know but I can't test the goggles. And this discount it will be until 10th octomber. I will think better before I'll take it.
