I just switched to action optics smith photochromic clear water coppers. I love em. Only one setback they don't fit my big head like my costas do.

I use both Maui Jims and Costa Del Mars. Cannot recommend either of them highly enough.

Smith/Action Optics "Fishbone" model. I have three pair, one each with grey, photochromatic copper, and yellow lenses. Excellent at keeping out the sun from the side. I have used Maui Jim and Costa Del Mar, both of which are very good, but the Fishbone has proven to be the best for me. My. $0.02.
