Edge 7378 Sunglasses

Flying Fisherman's Edge 7378 is designed with fishermen in mind

Flying Fisherman’s AcuTint Polarized Lens System eyewear is designed to improve your vision while fishing or anywhere around the water. The AcuTint Polarized Lens System contains the shatterproof RhinoLens, which provides 100% UVA and UVB protection. There is a hard coating applied to the lens to resist scratching and improve long term durability. I’ve had a pair of Flying Fisherman sunglasses for three years, and even though they have not been taken care of very well – to this day they do not have a scratch on them.


The specific Flying Fisherman model supplied to our field staff Ken for review was the Edge 7378 with smoke finish lenses. They can also be purchased with an amber finish. The wraparound design of the lens affords an unobstructed, wide angle view at all times. The frames are Matte Black Ink TR90 construction with a semi-rimless design and are light in weight. TR90 is the same grade used to make toothbrushes and we know how durable those are.

The earpieces are molded to fit the user’s head shape and give a snug, but not overly pressured fit. In his trials, Ken was pleasantly surprised how well the glasses stayed in place. He even did some "head jerking" to see if he could shake them off, but was never able to. Just in case though, there is an eyewear retainer strap available as an accessory to help ensure against accidental loss. A soft micro-fiber case is also supplied for storage.


The AccuTint lenses gave a clear picture when looking directly down into the water and looking out at more of an angle, eliminating virtually all of the glare you get from the sunlight hitting the water's surface. Ken would have liked to have tried the amber lenses to see whether they might give an enhanced view through the water compared to the ones with the smoke finish. Of course, wearing sunglasses also offers a bit of protection against stray fish hooks, sinkers, etc.

Ken’s wife mentioned the Edge model glasses were actually more stylish and looked better than other sunglasses he had worn in the past. So you needn't worry about having to give up your style while out on the water. With spring having begun to arrive, Ken will soon be giving the Flying Fisherman Edge sunglasses an even more thorough test while fishing and boating in many of the inland lakes, rivers and streams of the Great Lakes area.
