Skeet Reese and Wiley X Launch New Sunglasses Design

#Visionary eyewear manufacturer Wiley X®, Inc. has teamed with world champion angler Skeet Reese to develop a bold new sunglass design that has other anglers staring and the fish running scared. New for 2010, Wiley X?s Skeet Reese Signature Xcess' sunglasses feature eye-catching styling, advanced Filter 8' polarized lense technology and the same shatterproof High Velocity Protection (HVP') that protects the eyes of U.S. armed forces on the battlefield.


"When I put on my new Xcess glasses and hit the lake, fish can swim, but they can?t hide," said Reese, 2009 Bassmaster Classic champion and winner of more than $2.1 million in career earnings. "The unique combination of Polarized Amber lenses with an Emerald Mirror finish has played an important role in every event this season. These glasses help me clearly see irregularities in the bottom, underwater vegetation and fish as they cruise along the shoreline. The more fish and fish-holding structure you can identify, the more fish you?re going to catch on any body of water. It?s also important for me to look good on the victory stand, which is another reason I love the new Xcess. I?ve gotten a lot of positive comments from anglers and fans across the country, which feels great," added Reese.

Wiley X?s new Xcess is ideal for any style of angling, whether flyfishing a Gold Medal river, throwing plugs for tarpon or battling billfish offshore. The unique wrap-around frame style provides full facial coverage with a comfortable, yet secure fit. With 100% polarization and 100% protection from the sun?s harmful rays, the Xcess keeps anglers? eyes comfortable and protected through a full day on the water. Like all Wiley X models, the Xcess meets the ANSI Z87.1-2003 certification, providing OSHA-grade safety and impact protection ? important when racing across the water or flinging heavy, hook-laden lures. The new Wiley X Xcess is RX ready, making it ideal for anglers who require prescription lenses.

The new Xcess was designed for form and function, with special wide temples that help block sunlight and reflected glare. This not only improves eye comfort, it provides superior underwater vision. This bold design features a glossblack frame, metallic temple accents with a unique "riveted" appearance and distinctive WX logos in Reese?s trademark yellow color. A yellow and white Skeet Reese signature/angler logo graces the inside temple.


In addition to the new Skeet Reese Xcess model, Wiley X has added several polarized "fishing additions" to its popular Street Series line for 2010. These include the new Scissor, Hydro and Quake, each engineered to provide an advanced level of comfort, protection and glare-cutting performance when fishing or participating in other outdoor activities.
