Tuesday April 11th, 2017- The SwingThought TOUR is proud to announce its partnership with Popticals, maker of innovative and compact pop-out sunglasses.
Launched by David Porter in June 2016, Popticals are innovative pop-out sunglasses, perfect for golfers and anyone on the go. The patented FL2 Micro-Rail System® built into the frames allows Popticals lenses to slide parallel to each other for easy and compact storage that won’t damage the lenses. Porter took his patented technology and incorporated it with Italian design. Each pair of Popticals are designed, assembled, and finished by hand in Italy by Popticals’ Italian design team. Popticals partnered with optics industry leader Carl Zeiss Vision, to create NYDEF™ Nylon Lenses. Earlier this year Popticals launched their golf-specific line with NYDEF GOLF lenses with purple and violet tints to reduce the green saturation on the course allowing different shades of green to be easily distinguished. This enhances golfer’s’ ability to see contours, grain, topography, and ridges on the greens that they otherwise could miss. The nylon material used in lenses make them significantly clearer and 16% lighter in weight than polycarbonate lenses used in other sunglasses. The NYDEF GOLF Popticals come in 4 different styles and include a durable custom compact carrying case, carabiner clip and cleaning cloth.
“We think NYDEF GOLF lenses will become the new go-to choice for golfers of every skill level,” said Porter. “Combined with our patented compact design, every golfer can carry the high-performance sunglasses easily without the worry of them getting scratched or damaged.”
“Popticals brings a clear view to the SwingThought TOUR and helps any golfer focus while out in the elements” stated Stephan Koblos, Sales Director for the SwingThought TOUR. “We are excited to help launch the NYDEF GOLF Popticals and fortunate to provide them to our National Series winners” he continued.
Popticals will be providing each winner of a 2017 National Series Event with a complimentary pair of the NYDEF GOLF Popticals. SwingThought TOUR Members will also receive a special online code to be used online.
