PROFormance Features

Always chasing the next big catch, Costa revisits their frames to help fishermen do what they love — longer. With the introduction of the PRO Series, Costa brings 6 new performance features that are designed to enhance the fishing experience. Let’s review each of these additions below, along with their benefits.

Costa PRO Series performance features on a graphic showing the Costa Blackfin PRO with 6 new performance additions.

  1. Fully-Adjustable Nose Pads: It’s rare that our Sports Opticians see something they haven’t seen before, but the fully adjustable nose pads made our team go wild. Full-rim nylon frames are traditionally created with static, non-maneuverable nose pads, which means a less than ideal fit. The PRO Series’ adjustable nose pads is one of the first of its kind and allows you to create a completely custom fit that is as unique as you.
  2. Sweat Management Channels: When adrenaline is pumping, don’t let sweat interfere with your vision. The cutting-edge sweat management channels direct moisture away from the frame, so your sight stays clear from distractions and fog.
  3. Improved Hydrolite™: Your favorite rubber grip just got grippier. The updated formula is more durable while providing the tackier when wet reaction you love.
  4. Eyewire Drains: Whether you get an unexpected splash, or are breaking a sweat while reeling in your trophy fish, strategically-placed eyewire drains prevent moisture from pooling inside the frame for uninterrupted vision.
  5. Hooding & Side Shields: In addition to extra protection from harsh UV rays, you won’t get distracted by pesky light leak sneaking in from the peripherals.
  6. Metal Keeper Slots: For extra choppy days, clip on a leash to keep your Costas near and dear — and far away from the bottom of the ocean.


At SportRx, we see a lot of sunglasses and to say Costa left no stone unturned with their PRO series is an understatement. We are blown away with their innovative take on an already amazing product. In fact, we love it so much we nominated it for the Best Design Award at this year’s REXYS. Stay tuned to find out if it takes home the prize!

Costa PRO Sunglasses

As we just learned, the Costa PRO Series is a one-stop-shop for everything you need in fishing sunglasses. In addition to the 6 performance features we reviewed above, let’s check out how it translates to your favorite Costa fishing sunglasses.

Costa Blackfin PRO

An angler favorite, the Costa Blackfin PRO features 8-base wrap and a stay-put design. Featuring a generous Hydrolite™ lining, you’ll get extra grip along the temples, cheekbones, and nose pads so your hands stay on the rod, instead of fiddling with frame readjustments. Constructed from Costa’s eco-friendly bio-resin nylon, you’ll get lightweight and durable wear with a side of feel-good attitude.

As for the lenses, the Blackfin PRO features Costa 580 lens technology. Available in both glass (580G) and polycarbonate (580P) options, you can select from a variety of tints to get the perfect level of contrast for your specific environment.
