Customer Testimonials

Testimonials from some of the most enthusiastic and professional fishing enthusiasts...

Joel Millard‎ "Just a quick note to thank you kindly for your support and customer service in helping me with the new sunnies! I bought the pair of Trakker in copper you recommended for me and you were right they were the perfect fit! I have never had such a comfortable reassuring fit from a set of sunglasses ever! That said the lenses on these are absolutely incredible!! It is effortless on my many hours of driving with work to look through them and for the first time ever I don't feel as if my eyes are straining to "see through the lens.." As you told me you could help with! The driving strain headaches are finally GONE! I haven't had a chance to fully test them on the water yet as central Vic is unusually under flood, but test looking into the murky water I can already see how great they will be! And can see good sub surface depth even in dirty flood water. I truly thank you for the old school customer support! It goes a long way in my eyes and because of this I have been and will continue to recommend Tonic sunglasses to everyone! (Any easy thing to do when a product is so good!) Thank you once again Doug and I look forward to wearing Tonics for many years to come!"

Morgan Walton‎ I have been wearing Tonics for a few years now and I wouldn't even think about purchasing another brand. Tonics play a big part in a lot of my catches as I mainly sight cast the species I target, whether it be with lures or fly.

Mulwala Spinner Baits‎ Rare opportunities of catching quality fish like this 86cm Mulwala Cod (Three big Cod sighted in as many outings, unfortunately spooked the other two) after sighting them first can only be done with good quality polarized sunglasses to cut the glare and see deep into the water. I have fished Lake Mulwala for years and before these sightings I have never seen a free swimming Cod, I have never worn Tonic Sunglasses before either!!

Wade Turner I'm wearing Tonic' Bono glass lenses in this picture. They allowed me to cut through the glare off the surface and see where this Murray Cod was swimming. It had just missed a hardbody close to the surface. My Tonics allowed me to sight cast in front of it with a spinnerbait and get the hook up. A healthy fish that went close to 80cm, a quick pic and he was returned to the water.

CentralCoast MiniBucks We used Tonic eyewear to find natives in this region. This feisty little native was a very patient subject to get this image and without the Tonic Eyewear giving us the capability to spot him and his friends in some pretty tight country we wouldn't have been able to get this shot!

Dylan Mott "My passion, My Job and my life consists of tournament Bass fishing. Making number 1 ranking involves using the best of the best and as far as I'm concerned there are no better sunglasses on the market then Tonic, they are the best of the best."

Steve Cooper "For more than 20 years I have been donning sunglasses designed by Doug Phillips, and see no reason to change. When it comes to sunglasses I don't care about brand: I want quality. Sunglasses are a tool of my trade. I use them to spot fish, drive long hours, protect my eyes from UV light, stray flies and lures. For that reason I don't scrimp on quality. There is more to a pair of sunglasses than a label and a stamp that says "polarized." The man behind the glasses is the key to quality, and Tonic sunglasses are great for what I do. I see no reason to change. And for the record, I volunteered this testimonial; I am not on the payroll. I did so because I believe in Doug and his Tonic glasses. People who know me will know how much that means."

Shannon Orr "I don't just sell Tonic Glasses but use them everyday, for driving, for riding my mountain bike and of course I feel there is nothing better than Tonics for my fishing."

Brett Wolf "Bonefish are known as the ghosts of the flats because they are very difficult to see. Our Aussie bonefish are big, but they are still difficult to see, so I rely on the best polarized sunglasses available. Aussie designed Tonic Eyewear are amongst the best available for serious flats and bluewater fishing. I have no hesitation in recommending Tonic sunnies to maximise your fishing opportunities!"

Brett Wolf

Alex Julius "For me, polarised sunglasses are all about two things: firstly, to maximising my ability to see through the water, either to spot fish or to identify obstacles that could become a hazard to boating; and, secondly, to reflect the strong glare of the tropics whilst not impeding the quality of vision. I have been wearing Tonic Polarised Sunglasses for more than 12 months now and I can only speak highly of them. The clarity of vision is outstanding and they certainly do the job for me when I go fishing."

Alex Julius

Cameron McGregor "I have spent my life time on the water for both work and pleasure and in that time have used many brands of polaroid sunglasses. I rely quite heavily on quality glass for sight fishing and also extending my time on the water. From my initial wearing of them I noticed how light, clear and sharp they are. More than once I have noticed how late in the day I continue to have them on, tonic’s are definitely the best glass I have worn."

Cameron McGregor

Chris Burbidge "I’ve been wearing my Tonics for around 8 months now. They are the most comfortable fitting & clear sunglasses that I have ever worn which is what you need when you’re spending long hours on the water. The detail & clarity they have is just fantastic. Being able to see fish or structure has become so much easier since I’ve been wearing them."

Chris Burbidge

Angus Gorrie "My pair of Tonic glasses assisted greatly in the capture of this Threadfin Salmon from the Northern Territory. As we were on specialised site fishing trip, the recipe for the day was eye straining exploration into the shallows in search of barra and threadfin salmon. With my Tonics this was quite simply a pleasure as the contrast allowed for the easy spotting of actual fish and the UV protection meant that after 48 hours of nearly straight fishing my eyes were not fried! Could not be happier with my pair and will be getting more!"

Angus Gorrie

Ken Orr "After two months of testing by myself and the team our belief was that they were optically clearer than anything we were currently using and worked over a wider spectrum of light conditions. As an additional bonus, they were the best driving glasses we ever used. We are of the opinion that Tonic Eyewear have taken polaroid glasses a major step forward, and we have committed to using them for the foreseable future."

Andrew Schrodter "I've used tonics for the past month and I can honestly say that these lenses are with out a doubt the clearest I've ever used. I spend many hours a week fishing and filming and it's a true pleasure to add another tool to my arsenal and perhaps the most important tool of all - unmatched clear vision all the time, Tonics are the next level."

Andrew Schrodter

Adam Royta "I need to see clearly - it’s totally imperative to what I do on the water. Tonic lenses are the clearest I’ve ever worn and there colour reproduction and separation is second to none."

Adam Royta

Corey Skennerton "I have worn many different types of polarised sunglasses over the years and have never found anything to be as comfortable or as light as Tonic sunglasses. But by far the best feature is the super clear vision you have when you put them on. I do quite a lot of sight fishing and I truly believe that the ‘Tonic’ sunglasses will greatly improve my fishing! I wont leave the boat ramp without my Tonic’s."

Corey Skennerton

Scott Mitchell "I have been a self professed sunglass junkie for as long as I can remember & have worn most of the big name brands during my 40 plus years of fishing. My favourite fishing styles all involve being able to see the fish 1st which makes my sunglasses one of my most critical items. My new Tonics are the sharpest, clearest & most comfortable Polaroid glasses I have ever worn. I could waffle on about how these new ultra light “decentred” glass lenses feature state of the art technologies and come in comfortable stylish high quality frames. But all you really need to do is put a pair on... You’ll see what I mean."

Dusky Chaser "I love my big flattys as you can see thats why I use Tonic eyewear, I'm not one to quote inspirational words but I guess what stands out to me is with this lens ,the colour contrast and that they make all other sunnies I've worn seem washed out...Tonic...I love em."

Dave Bradley "My job and my passion are sightfishing in shallow water for a wide range of fish species in a wide range of locations, my glasses are one of my most important tools. That's why I'm wearing Tonic."
