     ebay, but be sure and ask the seller to confirm it is a double lens.

     nothing on the bay right now... all the usual online sites have them at the same price $70...

    it's only my inner lens that's crack - about 1.5" long starting from the bridge going straight up... it's annoying but not unusable... so i might just run 'em as is, unless the crack spreads or they start fogging badly...

    Crowbar lens - cheapest place to get a HI Yellow?   

    I picked up a pair of Splices this weekend and am looking for a good price on a H.I Yellow as well. I bought the Fire lens for sunny days and it came with a Persimmon, but not the H.I. Persimmon. I couldn't get US Outdoor to let me pay the $30 difference to swap the Persimmon for the HIY.

    Anybody think it's NOT worth buying a H.I. Yellow and think I should just use the Persimmon? I really don't know Oakley lenses well, this is my first pair in a long time.

    they are in pretty good condition. a few scratched here and there, but nothing that obstructs view. they are about 2 years old, and i never really wear them.

    I used persimmon only forever and finally got a "quiver" this year. H.I. Yellow PWNZ Persimmon in low light. I personally wouldn't buy multiple lenses for one frame because I hate switching them, but if that floats your boat then you'll probably be very happy with the difference in visibility for the price.

    Thanks Ado, that's what I wanted to hear. Whether or not there was a noticeable difference. Hood is notorious for low vis, so a good low light lens is essential. Sounds like this one's worth it......

     I wear a yellow lens in my crowbars during flat light days at Meadows and it is 100x better than my fire lens. Still have a hard time seeing bumps in the snow some days (especially in Heather canyon). I believe Hood may have some of the worst light issues I have ever encountered while riding. The sky and snow just seem to meld together some days.

     Have you tried HI yellow? If pink is better I may have to try that. Anything that will help my vision in the soup here at Hood.

    I think I'll see if the shop I bought them from, will give me 20% off a HI yellow. I think they will, they gave it to me on the goggs and fire lens.

    BTW, I wore them for the first time today. Kick ass goggle and sooooo comfy.
