Oakley puts real technology in their Fishing Specific eyewear. Some say its overkill. The pros say its essential gear. For starters, High Definition Optics (HDO) gives you unbeatable clarity and precise, accurate vision. The lenses are optimized with a Hydrophobic coating that prevents water sheens from corrupting your point of view. The permanent coating also maintains a smudge-resistant barrier against skin oils, lotions and sunscreens, and it even repels dust. But the real eye-opener is how much innovation is poured into the optics. Oakley polarization eliminates the blinding rays of glare with greater than 99% efficiency, while the manufacturing technique eliminates the haze and visual distortion that comes with ordinary polarized lenses.
And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.
There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.
