Too bad you don't have fishbowls. I wonder how they compare to the EG2's.
ive tried the fishbowls on, but i never bothered to buy a pair because frankly the EG2's are just so damn good
Wow awesome

Which ones do you use most frequently?
i use the EG2's 90% of the time. it makes my gf nuts cause the oakley goggles in the front left were custom made and cost like $240 and i hardly ever wear em.. but the EG2's are just unmatched in field of vision and comfort IMHO.

the splices are the newest addition and theyre actually really comfortable and the lenses are AMAZING for low light

I feel the same about eg2. I can't wear anything else anymore. Have brand new air brakes sitting in a box. 3-4 pairs of crowbars, some a frames, some fishbowls, One pair of splice, but we each have 2 pairs of electric eg2 or 2.5 for my son and wife.....

i believe theyre the VR50 pink iridium but i honestly dont know for sure. Ive never seen another pair of Splice's like mine. I got them at the Oakley store in Times Square and sometimes they have some limited stuff.

Eg2's >*

I notice they tend to get easily scratched.
pretty much. in all fairness my EG2's are now 2 1/2 seasons old and have very little scratches on the lenses (bronze/chrome)..except for when i fell directly on my face. that scratched them up a little bit haha

yea they're honestly unbeatable. i actually bought a pair of Dragon APX goggles and just couldnt justify them at the time when the EG2's still kicked their asses and they had bluebird lenses in them

I have 7 lenses and 2 frames that are mine. My yellow have about 75 days on the, fire iridium about the same, pink about 15 and orange about 15. I ditched my bronze a while back and never pull them out and have not used my clears yet. The yellow are scratched up but from me being an idiot... My fire iridium have a few scratches but you can't notice it when wearing them. The yellow are noticeable when wearing but I don't give a shit.... New lenses with my discount locally are $20.....

Fishbowls are my first decent pair of goggles, cant wait to try them out tomorrow. Picked them up off Clymb for $65 inc shipping so wasnt complaining (though it seems replacement lenses will cost me almost the same amount lol

That's def a downside to high quality goggles.. Lenses don't come cheap. It's why I just sprung for a different pair of goggles entirely for different light conditions. That and I have an obsession with all things sunglasses/goggles.
I have around 25 pairs of high end sunglasses and now 8 pairs of goggles. Nobody NEEDS that many lol.
I also played paintball for years and was given lots of goggles through different sponsorships and grew a major hatred for swapping out lenses lol

I used the vr50 pink iridium lenses all season this year in an a frame. Great in all conditions from flat to bluebird. I never bothered switching out once, which was great because lens switching with the a frame is a pain. Next season I'm going to try the anon m1 for ease of switching...

i like the a frame but it's too small a goggle for me after riding with the EG2's for so long.

and i shouldve known they werent pink iridium since i have frogskins with pink iridium lenses.

these are actually the H.I. Persimmon lenses..they made a cloudy day last weekend look like the sun was 50 feet overhead

Do you wear a helmet with the eg2's? Wondering how they'd fit with one. If they won't fit right I have a pair of spy's in mind...
