Yellow and a light orange are the best for low light. I agree with everyone about the versatility of the Sensor Mirror, but it is truly a jack of all master of none. On bright days I prefer a little more shade and in flat light the yellow and orange really work, while I would say that the Sensor Mirror "suffices". Not trying to hate, they are my pair with the most days on em in my bag, but as I get more to choose from....

Well, it depends on the red. Go to http://store.prolens.com/electric-eg...nses-p165.aspx and scroll down. The higher the VLT the better in low light.

When we say yellow we are talking yellow/chrome right? The finish doesn't have an effect on the VLT?

You are probably better off checking around the sales and just buying a second pair of goggles.

That's exactly what I did. My orange lens goggles were $40. I'm more likely to eat shit on a flat light day so if I face plant and wreck them they're not too expensive to replace!

Looks like my local shop is carrying the yellow's for 40 bucks. So I'm gonna go swoop em tomorrow after work. I already have a back up pair so I'm covered there. I just want a low light dedicated lens because even the new sets ship usually with a bronze lens. Thanks for the assistance guys.

I use the same setup for almost every day out here in the PNW. I do keep a pair of A-Frames with a sunny day lense, but I use them about twice a season.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
