Black iridium good for cloudy conditions?
So I'm wondering if a black iridium lens is more like a fire iridium or a pink iridium.
like it's name suggests, it's a very dark lens in the same VLT (visible light transmission) range as the fire iridium, which is to say very low VLT. if you are looking for a good cloudy conditions lens, check out the high intensity yellow or hi persimmon. the yellow is better but both are good options.
The black looks a lot like the fire lens. Honestly, the pink lens sucks. Yellow or persimmon is where it's at.

ive had the yellow lens and ive never been on top of baldy with low visibility / cloudy, where it matters. but i have to say i would NOT have anything darker than pink iridium on a mountain.
the clouds blend in with the snow and then you can't tell if its snow or clouds you are looking at. it sucks. AND THIS WAS WITH A PINK IRIDIUM LENS.
I like hi persimmon better than hi yellow. The yellow is better in the low light, but once there is a bit of sun, not so good. The hi persimmon is a great all around lens. I've got the hi persimmon on my splices and I found they are great in every lighting condition.
