Rated 3 out of 5 by 1
Rated 3 out of 5 by Stripermaniac Great lenses, poor frames
I cannot speak of every pair of "Jose" frames but mine starting falling apart after only two years.
The black frames have a rubber gasket that begins at the curved ends by the ears and extends forward at the bottom.
The rubber began separating just a few months ago and now I am noticing the polycarbonate frame finish looks "puckered" or slightly melted. This is not due to being left on the dash of my car or exposure to extreme heat.
Be aware that the tortoise shell frames do not have this rubber gasket frame. My wife has a pair of Cabillitos and even lathered with sunscreen the frames are in perfect shape.
I will say that on bright days the grey lenses are far better at spotting fish than the amber lenses and overall I think Costa makes the finest fishing lenses in the business.
I would just be wary of this particular style and color of frame (grey lenses, black frames, the Joses only, as far as I know).
Following my next fishing trip to Florida next week I will be sending them back to the manufacturer ASAP.
Buy Costas with confidence but again, beware this particular selection.
