Popticals Performance Eyewear showcasing expanded golf line and game-changing design at 2018 PGA Fashion & Demo Experience

(ST. LOUIS, MO) – August 8, 2018 - Popticals, maker of compact performance eyewear, announced today that they will be exhibiting in Booth #616 at the upcoming PGA Fashion & Demo Experience in Las Vegas, August 13-15, 2018.

Popticals will be showcasing three new additions to their NYDEF™ GOLF line for 2018; POPSTORM, POPH2O, and the all-new POPTRAIL models are now available with their NYDEFTM GOLF lenses.


Show attendees and media members are encouraged to stop by their booth and visit with representatives from Popticals to learn more about their compact, high performance eyewear that is helping golfers worldwide play better golf!

Popticals partnered with optics industry leader Carl Zeiss Vision to create NYDEF™ nylon lenses that bring visual precision to every golfer. The lenses enhance the ability to identify the subtle details that can often be hard to read among the many similar shades of the greens. Their nylon material provides the same clarity as glass lenses while remaining 18% lighter than polycarbonate lenses used in most other sunglasses.

To keep their high-performance lenses safe when not in use, Popticals developed an innovative and patented new technology that allows for portable, safe storage. At the heart of their patented design is the FL2 Micro-Rail System®. Built into the frames, the FL2 Micro-Rail System’s® track and stainless steel components allow the lenses to slide in parallel to each other for compact storage. The glasses then fit inside a small, durable case that keeps them safe when not in use. This gives Popticals their unique portability while offering premium sports performance.

The 2018 PGA Fashion & Demo Experience will place the newest golf lifestyle apparel and accessory collections in the spotlight of Las Vegas Fashion Week and in front of influential PGA Professionals and buyers, Aug. 13-15.  In addition to more than 100 apparel and accessories brands presenting their newest merchandise in the Palazzo Ballroom of The Venetian, the industry event also will include a Live Fashion Show and Industry Reception, a fashion lounge for buyer-designer networking and multiple featured fashion displays.

The 2018 PGA Fashion & Demo Experience begins with the annual Pro-Pro Tournament at TPC Las Vegas and the PGA Demo Experience at Topgolf Las Vegas on Monday, Aug. 13. Apparel and accessory companies join golf equipment and technology companies at The Venetian, Aug. 14-15, to provide a comprehensive golf merchandise sourcing event of nearly 200 golf-related companies and brands.  Additionally, a comprehensive PGA Fashion & Demo Experience Education Conference will be held at The Venetian, Aug. 13-15. The PGA Fashion & Demo Experience is again co-located with multiple Las Vegas Fashion Week trade shows, making apparel and accessory sourcing across multiple events convenient to PGA Professionals and fashion retailers.

Entrepreneur and Popticals founder David Porter saw a problem: sports sunglasses have no easy and safe way to be carried around when not in use. The cases wrap-around sunglasses come with are too bulky, and without a case, they often end up broken or lost. So David did what he does best and invented a solution: a design that allowed wrap-around sunglasses to compact down to a small size.

Popticals was founded with a spirit for innovation and adventure. They build portable, premium sports sunglasses that provide high-performance eyewear when you need them, and a convenient, safe way to store them when you don’t.
