Ektelon Speed Racquetball Eyewear
Comments: These glasses are comfortable and durable. I have taken many shots to them and they are still holding solid. However I am in the process of looking for something else. As mentioned the nose pieces are annoyingly easy to fall off. And the real problem for me is they fog up in my first game to 15. The constant fogging and having to take them off and wipe them is unsatisfactory for me. Then you add in that when I wipe them off one side or both of the nose piece falls out so I have to find it and put it back on. Its just too much hassle and down time when you're trying to play.

Comments: Like many of the reviewers, the nose pieces came off my pair of glasses too. However, when I called Ektelon, they sent me several replacement nose pieces for free -- so I didn't have to buy a new pair of glasses. So, if you've lost the nose pieces, give Ektelon a call, they will take care of it.

Comments: Excellent eyewear, however the drawback is that the neoprene nose pieces easily come off & once you lose them you have to buy new eyewear. This has happened to a few players I know as well. Easy answer would be for Ektelon to offer that option to purchase replacements for sale, or include additional nose pieces vs. 3 different lenses however.....they of course lose the chance to sell you a new pair. Best suggestion... Superglue them into place the day you get them.

Comments: Best pair of glasses I have ever played with. Stay in place on the face and I don't always have to push them back up.
Comments: Although comfortable, sweat gather on the bridge of my nose so I was continuously taking them off to wipe the sweat. Tended to catch the edges of the frame in my vision. I wore them one game and went back to old pair as this will be a back-up.
Comments: Took a pretty good angled forehand shot to the right eye and the one thing I can say is the little pins that hold the nose piece in place snapped right off and the frame dug into my nose. Other than a 3/4 inch gash they did exactly what they were supposed to do. The neoprene nose pieces come off too easily when you're cleaning the goggles. Lose them and you're sunk.
Comments: Best pair of glasses I have ever tried.
