I'm not a schlepper, but I think this stuff should work great on shades to keep the drops off. I've tried RainX a few times and it doesn't really do the trick:

I would coat the board. Fast as hell with no adhesion to the water! Hell, coat the whole kit(e)!

You could easily do a test, coat one half of the twintip, and see if it rides faster to that side =)

If you coat yourself, maybe on those days when you can almost ride without a wetsuit, you actually can =) Because you get mostly cold from drying when wet. If you dont get wet, you get cooled down less...

After watching video .....the stuff is sprayed on
On sun lenses i think it would leave a film on the surfaces and you could not see through them
If you were to wipe off the sprayed on product to see through the lenses it would smear them
If you were able to clean the lenses to see through... then the product would not be on the lenses

I could be wrong
Go buy it at Home Depot and test it for us :D

As an optician we sell all type of optical lenses with built-in super hydrophobic finishes
It is built-in the matrix of the lenses.....not just a surface coating
Has a 2 years unlimited scratch warranty...no questions asked
The "beading" only wears out 3% even after extensive testing of 20,000 cleanings !!
It has the highest water repellent angle available of 116 degrees
Crizal Sunshield UV "process" will add about $100 to the cost of the sun lenses
So make sure not to never lose those sunglasses or you will cry :cry1: :thumb:

......................................... :surf: :sun: :coolshades: .....................................................................

Crizal cannot be added to existing sun lenses
Crizal type lenses are custom made and can be ordered through authorized optical stores
Crizal Sunshield UV makes the backside of the lenses non-reflective....for the clearest vision

Just checked the Home Depot page for NeverWet, and among the specifications is:

Dries clear? No

I was about to run out and buy some to try on sunglasses.

Maybe they'll come out with version 2.0 some day that will dry clear.

I would highly recommend Fogzero. Also great for goggles, binoculars, camera lenses, CDs and DVDs. Non-toxic. I used it many many years. Simply the best. RainX does not work.

I like rain x on my glasses. I found that if you let it air dry then polish works way better.
