American Golfer's blog about PeakVision

Article published by American Golfer on February 16th, 2018. 

(CONWAY, SC) - PEAKVISION, the sunglasses that took the golf world by storm with its unique, patented Dual-Zone/Zero Distortion lens, is under new ownership. David Feaser of Conway, South Carolina, who’s been in the sunglass business for 30 years as the owner of Shades of George (www.shadesofgeorge.com), bought PEAKVISION company assets and all the patents for the popular lenses from the original company in May 2017, and is running the company as President/CEO.

Nicholas Feaser is National Sales Manager of PEAKVISION. The father-son team is committed to growing the brand and giving back to the golf community.

The Orlando Sentinel named PEAKVISION one of the top nine items at the PGA Merchandising Show this year. Read the article HERE.

“PEAKVISION lenses have such great clarity and high definition that it provides three times more visual information on the green for an impeccable read,” says David Feaser. “Everywhere we go, golfers come up to me and tell me they’re the best sunglasses on the market. These sunglasses visually ‘Change you Game,’ and help you make better putts and save strokes on the green.”
“Let’s face it,” Feaser continues. “Your round is won or lost on the green so if you can save one or more strokes off your game, who wouldn’t want to try these sunglasses? Most golfers take their sunglasses off or put them on their hats or head while they putt. Your eyes during that moment are adjusting to more visual information, which makes putting even more difficult. With PEAKVISION Sunglasses, it provides a continuity of visual information and you don’t have to take the sunglasses off. In fact, you’ll want to leave them on!”

PEAKVISION offers a line of Jack Nicklaus-signature sunglasses as well. “The JN1 and the JN5 in the collection reflect the high standards of Jack Nicklaus himself,” adds Feaser. All PEAKVISION styles are available and are currently on-sale by ordering on-line at www.peakvision.com.

PeakVision Sponsors Ann Liguori's Celebrity Tournament in the Hamptons

Article written by Ann Liguori and published by Hamptons.com.

I just signed a deal with Peakvision. They're going to come to the golf event and gift glasses to every golfer. They're gorgeous and the lenses are the best I've ever experienced in golf. They promote the lenses as very high clarity and zero distortion. For anybody that golfs, basically when you're putting you don't have to take your glasses off. It actually helps you read the grooves and contours of the greens better. Everywhere I go professional golfers know this brand and love the brand. I'm delighted they believed in me and my world so much that they wanted to be a part of it.

Golf is Mental review of PeakVision's GX5

Article published by Golf is Mental on April 11th, 2018.

Despite getting emails on a daily basis with requests to write about golf gadgets or the next great golf idea, I don’t publish very many product reviews. To be blunt, there’s a lot of bad ideas out there. Since my blog will always remain an insightful and honest account of my thoughts, I don’t want to get bogged down with telling you not to bother with things you’ve probably never heard of anyway.

Having said that, when I come across something I think my readers would be interested in and may not already know about, I’m willing to give it a go.

When I found out about Peak Vision through a social media connection, I checked out their website and was very intrigued by a company dedicated to making sunglasses with golf in mind, and was keen when the opportunity arose to test out their product.

Peak Vision is a company based out of South Carolina and currently offers 10 different styles of sunglasses ranging from sporty to hipster to detective-like. The pair I tested out was their “sportiest” flagship model, the GX5. I was told that Jack Nicklaus is a big fan of Peak Vision shades, and they even offer a few models wielding the Golden Bear logo – the Jack Nicklaus Signature Model (JN 1), The Jack Nicklaus Model Five (JN 5), and the Golden Bear Model 9 (GB 9).

First Impression

When I first peeled them out of the box, I got what I hoped for, and then some, from a sporty pair of sunglasses. They were very light, durable, and flexible. While a sleek and sporty style wouldn’t be my choice for every occasion, I do like how this style fits nicely under a hat for playing golf.

The Specs

Here’s where things get fancy.

The nose piece is fully adjustable. You can pry them wider apart, closer together, closer to the lenses or further away, or adjust the angle of them, which makes it easier to get the sunglasses to sit on your face how you want. If you have an unusually large or small nose, you won’t feel discriminated by these shades. Adjusting the nose piece can change how high or low the sunglasses sit on your face, depending on your preference. This was definitely a feature that was new-to-me on a pair of sunglasses.

Adjustable nose piece on the GX5

The lenses seem to have a lot of thought and technology put into them. They feature a “dual-zone” lens, which means the upper part of the lens is a 20% contrast neutral grey to reduce the intensity and glare of the bright sun/sky, and the lower portion is a lighter, 60% contrast amber lens designed to enhance detail, capturing about 3x as much detail as the naked eye.

Since I am not an expert in optics and lens technology, here are the lens specs as hijacked from their website:

  • Dual-Zone/Zero-Distortion™ HYBRID Optics
  • 20%t Neutral-Gray Upper Zone Manages Glare
  • 60%t Amber Lower Zone Increases Contrast
  • Optical Glass-like Clarity
  • Impact-Resistant Safety
  • 100% UV400 Protection
  • 52 abbe Value for sunglasses with Zero-Distortion clarity

Whatever that all means, it does add up to a clear, sharp lens to look through.

I have a fairly large head and they fit nicely and looked proportional. Someone with an unusually giant melon could potentially find them to look a bit small on their face. However, the frames are quite flexible which helps to fit various head widths.

On the Course

I had the privilege of testing these shades out over five rounds of golf down in Palm Desert. We were treated to mostly sunny skies with some brief periods of cloud cover and a 100% chance of birdies.

The color looking through the lenses is dominated by the lower amber zone, meaning, I wasn’t overly aware of the dual-zone while wearing them, it sort of just blends together. I liked the look of the amber color, but ultimately that comes down to personal preference. The lenses did do a great job of cutting out glare from the sun, while not over-darkening anything.

During times of cloud cover, I didn’t feel the need to take them off which was nice. If anything, the lenses made things look less dull while it was cloudy, and helped the terrain pop out a bit. If I did need to take them off, they sat on my hat nicely, and have rubber on the ends of each arm for grip.

They were light and comfortable to wear for four straight hours, and I didn’t feel overly stressed about getting them dirty with sweat and sunscreen once I found out that they wiped cleanly with the cloth they come with.

While a claim that these sunglasses changed my game or made me a master green-reader would be a bit over the top, I can attest to the fact that things did look sharp through them, and they definitely did not make me worse. If nothing else, they provided me with some confidence on the greens with the belief in my mind that they’re supposed to help me.

Yours truly on the lookout for birdies in the GX5

Final Thoughts

It’s hard for me to ask for much more out of a pair of sporty sunglasses for the golf course. I can’t guarantee they’ll knock tons of strokes off your game, but they certainly aren’t going to hurt your cause, and I do appreciate a company who is dedicating their craft primarily to the performance and comfort of golfers.

Protecting my eyes on the golf course has always been a high priority. Unlike sunglasses, our eyes are pretty tough to replace if we damage them, so I will rarely set foot on a golf course without sunglasses on.

The style, fit, and lens colors of sunglasses can be a very personal choice, but I can attest to the fact that Peak Vision is delivering a very high quality product. If I was granted a wish, it’d be to see that lens technology transferred to a variety of different lens colors to give more variety to an already solid product.

For more info, and to view their other styles and pricing, you can visit the Peak Vision website.

Happy golfing!

PeakVision Rated In Top 9 Products at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show by the Orlando Sentinel

Article by the Orlando Sentinel. Published on February 2nd, 2018.

David Feaser’s passion for sunglasses is in his blood.

Feaser’s late father, George, started a sunglass company in 1988 that would serve around 250 stores along the Eastern seaboard. These days, David and his son, Nicholas, carry on the tradition.

But their unique, golf-centric PeakVision eyewear are not your father’s shades.

Seeing is believing. Put on a pair and a whole new world opens up on the course.

The Dual-Zone hybrid lens allow golfers to zero in on a booming drive or better read a testy four-footer. A 20 percent transmission gray Upper Zone deflects overhead glare and offers distance perception. The 60 percent amber Lower Zone heightens contrasts to help with green reading.

“Wait until you’re on the green, you’re not going to want to take them off,” Feaser said. “In fact, you won’t even realize you have them on.”

A resident of Myrtle Beach, S.C., the Feasers saw a clear opportunity and acquired PeakVision May 1 following litigation over licensing issues.

Founded in 2001, PeakVision is familiar to serious golfers. The JN Ones ($180) are endorsed by Jack Nicklaus.

The popular and affordable GX5 model ($120) are among about a dozen models available, offering golfers both protection and information.

“You need that information every second you’re out there,” Feaser said.

PEAKVISION Sunglasses Under New Ownership

Article by Until The Next Tee. Published on February 24th, 2018

I always love sharing information about products and brands that are either new or new to me. Part of the reason why I like to do what I do is to educate the general golfing public on products from both industry giants and those that are not.

 

PEAKVISION Sunglasses are a brand in the golf industry that I have heard of. Although, I have to admit that I have no practical knowledge or familiarity with them. I do intend to make that change. One of the intriguing technologies that the brand features is their patented “Zero/Zero Distortion Lens”. How many times as golfers have we left our sunglasses on and missed a putt because the green didn’t look quite right through our sunglasses? What happens? We remove them and place them on our heads. this is where “Zero/Zero” would come in handy. Also of note is that they have a “Jack Nicklaus Signature Line” of sunglasses available as well.

Carole Imperiale of PEAKVISION Sunglasses was kind enough to share this press release with me. Recently, PEAKVISION saw a change in ownership and this press release describes the transaction, their success at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show and some of the brands plans for the future.
