    can anybody help me with choosing the right lense color? I mainly shoot orange targets, but also shoot green birds, under the lights. Both clubs that I shoot at have green backdrops. I'd like to get away with one pair of lenses....but if I have to buy an additional pair......Any opinions?

    If you are color deficient then go with lite med vermilion...If you want contrast for targets in bright conditions look at # 1 v lite rose...it really brings out the target for me...Use itsnotyou's advise and call them ask for a gentleman named Sim he's very knowledgeable...

    Good Luck

    At the recent Westy Hogan shoot, I broke my glasses & took them to Ray Mckissick to repair. My squad was up soon, so Ray gave my a set of loaner glasses. He calls them Strawberry #2. It was a very grey, overcast day & they were excellant. They were so good, that I bought new frames & lenses, because he didn't have the #2 lenses for my frames. They are lighter than vermillion & worked great against the green mountain backdrop. I like them better than yellow for shooting under the lights.

    I just purchased a new set of Decot "Revel" frames, and bought 3 sets of Rx lenses for them. Lite Med. Vermillion, Lite Med. Target Orange, and Clear. I use the clear for green targets and for shooting under the lights. I have an old set of Decot HyWyd frames and 6 sets of lenses, but, I found out I only use the three I just described as they work the best for me under all conditions.... Just my experience...
