    Phil....Our club throws only green targets so I have a lot of experience trying different lense colors on them. For me, the Decot Blue Ice works very well, but my clear lenses work the best, overall. That being said, I am on the verge of ordering new glasses and I'm leaning towards the Post 4's in clear, target orange, and kiwi.....Dan Thome (Trap2)

    I use the same color I use for orange targets...light violet BECAUSE...

    I want a color that does NOT make green targets stand out. They are already so easy to see that if I make them brighter I tend to jump at them. By making them subdued I pay more attention to looking for them and my scores go up.

    That makes perfect sense Morgan. You should also try squinting as much as possible when calling for the bird. Jake
