Oakley Golf Prizm Lenses


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

I wanted to get my kiddo ( @NatalieB ) some Oakleys for her golf this year.

She ended up getting a pair of Quarter Jackets in black with the G30 Prizm lens. The G30 has long been one of the best for golf, according to Oakley. I have some G30 Iridium lenses and I've enjoyed using them. The G30 Prizm lacks the same mirror effect but is supposedly VERY good for golf.

She likes them, though she could only really look at our yard at dusk, so… :)

Unfortunately, they don't seem to have Golf Prizm lenses for the Fast Jackets.


Anyone else have these? What do you think?

Great choice! I've worn the Flak Jackets with G30 lenses for years now. Absolutely love them in virtually all conditions. I looked through the site, but couldn't tell. What, if any, is the difference between the G30 Prizm lens and the regular G30? Is it that they're also polarized?

I might have to look into a pair of these.  I love my Maxx sunglasses, but they just don't hold up probably as well as these.  I hope Nat likes them on the course.

I don't know. I just know what I read on the site. I think they're polarized (but I haven't tested it out or anything).

I have some Oakley Flak Jacket XLJs with the G30 lenses and I love them. My dad gave me some flak (pun intended) about wearing them while playing, claiming that I was "going Hollywood" on him, but I struggle with major eye fatigue and really dry eyes when the wind blows even a little bit. The sunglasses help with both issues. And they look damn good!!

I think more golfers should take better care of their eyes.

This means wearing sunglasses far more often than most golfers seem to do.

Agree.  UV exposure increases your risk of cataracts.

My gf got my Oakley sunglasses for Christmas.

When we went into the store, I saw the Golf Prizm's and tried them on.  The sales person said that they were great for the golf course but weren't really for everyday use but you could definitely tell some differences with the color green.

Since I was looking for everyday use sunglasses, I ended up getting the polarized Flak Jacket XLJ with the blue lenses and I love them.

Good point, I am making more of an effort to do so. I think I will pick up a pair of these with the prizm lenses as well.

I have the G30 Iridium lenses and I love them. I tried on a pair of Flak Jackets with the G30 Prizm lenses to see if it was worth upgrading and I didn't really like the Prizm lenses. They didn't reduce the glare as much as mine. I felt like everything was too bright with them on.

I got that exact pair, the Flak Jackets with Prizm lenses, and really really like them. I am used to playing without glasses so they are great for me. I really like how they transition from sunlight to being in the shade. I feel they enhance your vision in either condition. Wish I could actually play some golf with them, but I am loving these so far.

I have the Fast Jackets. My right lens has had a little scratch or nick right in the center since almost the first week I got them. I'm kinda used to them, but I keep waffling on buying a new pair of lenses for them. The G30 Prizm isn't out for the Fast Jacket yet.

Oooh, in the shade too, that's good to know. I almost always take my G30 Iridium sunglasses off in the shade as they make things too dark, tougher to find balls I figure. Hmmmm.

My G30 Iridium are polarized, too, and some sites make it unclear whether you're buying the polarized ones or not.

If I didn't have the G30 Iridium lenses, I probably would have liked the Prizm lenses. As it is, I'm used to my sunglasses making everything a little darker and slightly red. With the Prizm lenses, I had to squint at times if the sunlight reflected off things and hit my eyes (still too much glare for me). I couldn't wear them out on a boat, for example.

The first round I played, I accidentally dropped them on the 18th green when I was shaking hands with my partners and someone stepped on them. Fortunately, there was no damage.

    • I  think changing  courses would be a great  idea if  it  is  played  next  year. Congaree was as exciting as any tourney this  year except  for  Phil's win.
    • We golfers can use all the help we can get is my opinion. There is a reason why peo golfers carry 5 woods or hybrids as well. It just makes the game easier. I played blades for to long i guess, i am not to far off but the little extra help my irons give is just worth it. ( i play mizuno jpx 921 forged ) i recently switched my woods from titleist 917 d3 to cobra radspeed xb and my 3 hybrid is a radspeed as well that one is so easy to hit. I will trim down the length of the driver and 3 wood to 45inch and 42 inch. To give me some more control.
    • This is something I noticed at approx the same point in the swings. Notice the angle of your trail arm with the club shaft compared to the pro’s.  There are plenty better people here to comment on this but I thought I’d show you a comparison. 
    • Players are  coming  here with no problems at all. I think this  tourney was  just  fine. Didnt  miss the Canadian at all. The  lead  group collapsed  on an easy  day.
    • Why? Probably, in the fall of this year the border opens back up… the Canadian Open will happen in 2022, the Open Championship is happening this year, with fans. I am not a fan of playing Glen Abbey every year though, I like the rotational idea once the border opens back up… I’d like to see them play in the Prairie Provinces, there are some great golf courses in those provinces.
