I'm done with costa Del Mar so what is next????

Please tell me that I'm not the only one that has have nothing but horrible service with Costa Del Mar. The past 3 sets that I tried to warranty were all denied because "it was my fault". I ordered a new set directly from costa and they came to me with loose lenses and one fell out. I sent them in a month ago to find out they lost them after I called and complained about how long it was taking.

So my question today is what else is out there? What glasses are everyone using? Has anyone else made the switch from costa to something else and what is your results? Is there any other glass as good or better than costa?

Thanks guys.

Your not alone. They rubber nose piece models I've owned make it three months before rubber falls off. I'm tired of sending them back. Customer service acts like they don't know the problem exists or could give a flip. Super-glue should be provided in the box when purchased. Going back to Maui Jim personally.

I love my Maui Jim's. Had several pair and customer service was great. I needed a repair (my fault) and they replaced a very old pair for free.

I have 2 pair of Tuna Alleys that are nearly on a regular rotation to Costa for service for this. If I remember to not leave them in my truck, they seem to last a little longer, but, I'm pretty sick and tired of it too.


I have a pair of Maui Jim aviators for driving and have had to send them in twice. The first time was a minor repair that was fixed for free. The second time was because I stepped on them and destroyed lenses and frames. Maui sent me a brand new pair for less than Costa charged me for a single 580 lens once. Next time I need new fishing glasses, I'm going with Jims or Smith.
