My romance with these glasses lasted a while but as the glaring sun of the Monomoy flats beamed down and I became full-time during the striper season out there the plastic began to degrade in the sun (or such is my belief) and cracked in the same spot three pairs in a row.

Try as I might to glue the crack back together, the material would not hold for long even with the allmighty aquaseal. In my book if aquaseal can't hold it game over. You might not expose your plastic frames to the UV I do, but I've switched to metal frames.

Since then I have met the staff at Denver and am completely impressed with their new products and dedication of the anglers needs. I want to investigate their new products further and will contact them to discuss sponsorship.

If these glasses had not split I would still be touting them. The jury is out on their new product line... it would be cool to review their products in the field.
