    Planning to shoot the Golden West Grand?

    Agree with Stumpi, about Decot's Blue lens. I heard that the blue lens were developed for the green targets at Sage Hill.

    Purple works ok too.

    Blue Ice is the Decot lens and it is great! I use it all the time. It agrees with my eyes on green and orange targets.

    I used green lens for green targets the day I shot my 300 in 1985. That completed my Grand Slam.

    I have a set of the Randolph Engineering blue lenses as well as a set of Kiwi lenses from Post 4. The blue is good, but I like the Kiwi lenses better.

    Everyones eyes are different. I use either a light gold or a light rose colored lense myself. But that is what works for me. I also do most of my shooting in Western Washington where it rains for what seems like 180 days a year. And if it is not raining it is usually cloudy. I had a set of KIWI lenses for my Post 4 glasses. Paid $50.00 for them from Mike Rinard at Post 4. They did not work for me I eventually ended up giving the lenses away. And I mean I gave them away for free. But that does not mean that the kiwi lens would not work for you. I never tried the blue lenses. I have heard that a lot of people like them. I have a pair of purple lenses that work well for the rare occasion that the sun does shine around here. Which means in a typical year I only where them about ten times a year. I hope you find something that works for you.

    I see them best under sunny skies through brown lenses and 15% gold under darker skies.

    I hate green birds, except in the winter against the snow.

    L&M Lenses use a green lense that is easy on the eyes and works great!
