new shoei shield choice

My 3 year old plain anthracite Shoei RF1000 is still kickin' but it would be nice to have a new shield for a fresh outlook. I still have the clear shield and hardly use it because I'm using the Dark Smoke. Even when I get caught in the pm hours, the dark visor is ok since there's hardly a pitch dark road going home. Looked at the rf-1000 choices and saw the yellow and orange visors and the cool looking blue iridiums. I know the yellow/orange colors help aid vision somewhat and wonder if anyone here has ever tried them. I have doubts that it would reduce glare though. I'm also interested in the iridium blue and how dark does it look through that one (is it like the dark smoke). A friend who had the iridium gold said it was okay but you can kind of see your own reflection sometimes due to the coating, but he said it wasn't really of a bother...
anyone have any experiences with these?

I have the Gold and I would equate it to the dark smoke. I have never seen a glare in it.

late reply from me, but thanks Dave. I'm thinking the blue mirror will look good on the anthracite shoei.
