    I just bought a three lens set in the "hawk" style for $299. They are the clearest glasses I ever have used. I tried them along Randolph's, the Pilla's were about the same money for three lenses, and there was no comparison.

    Several of my friends have looked though them and have the same opinion. Compare that price to what some guns cost. Will they help my shooting. I hope so as I need the help. I'm not trying to sell anything, but they are really good.

    Bought a three lense set earlier this summer. Pretty expensive but the best lenses I have looked through, including my regular prescription glasses. Excellent quality.

    Bought a set of Hawks from Pilla at the 2010 Grand.

    really like the no nosepiece feature as I often had crossfiring problems due to the nosepieces on my Decot's and Randolphs.

    In my case, I've seen a substantial increase in target acuity and scores.

    to each his own, I'm happy with Mine.

    Pilla FKA HiDefSpex... are a premium shooting glasses system. Traditional polycarb lenses will never have the optical quality to equal, but having read about the new lens materials from Randolph and the use of Trivex as lens material option... there are choices out there.

    As far as their quality, I've yet to hear negative things about the various models...

    Here's the thing you gotta remember about shooting glasses. No one can tell you what will work for YOU. We all see colors differently. So you must test different colors in different conditions. I got my Pilla's from Tom in Texas. Very user friendly. Tom sent me probably 10 different lenses and two sets of frames. Told me to try them under various conditions and pick the three I liked best. What I ended up with I NEVER would have guessed. Now I know that I have the best lenses/colors for my eyes and the conditions I shoot in. On top of that, the optics are unsurpassed. Do they cost too much??? Yup! But by how much? Maybe $100 too much. Did I get $100 of additional value by getting the EXACT combination that works for me? Yup. But you decide...

    I bought a set of used Puma's that came with 3 lenses, and I ended up buying a fourth lense that was darker. I am color blind, and these lenses make the targets glow. Much easier for me to see the targets when they glow.
