    What do you think is the best lense color for shoot orange dome targets against a green tree background, in sun, cloudy conditions. The targets will never break into the sky.

    Take some time before you shoot to look through some lenses. I use purple for that situation, but may eyes may differ from yours. Its all about contrast

    Phil, as you know everyones eyes see colors differently. MY eyes thought vermillion was best, then I tried pink blaze from Post 4 and had a new favorite.
    Pink blaze is a derivative of vermillion. Good luck, Harv.

    Those who pointed out that color perception is an individual thing understand the difficulty in giving a simple answer to your question.

    I prefer V-lite myself... a pinkish color offered by Decot but available from just about everyone else.

    Vermilion gives me a headache. I can use target orange against cloudy sky but V-Lite is the color I use for just about every condition.

    As was already suggested, don't by a lens color until you have taken the time to look at targets through color samples under a variety of light and background conditions. Buying by recommendation only may leave you disappointed.

    I started with the Vermillion due to popular demand but then I went to Bronze and never looked back! As stated above everyone see's differently.Go to a big shoot were you can see a vendor and look thru them all and form your own opinion.PJ

    Green trees in the background and sunny days...Bronze works best for me too. Overcast against green trees...Target Orange.

    Phil,

    Comming from a old dude, I think the Vermillion work great with a green background.Even better is Rangers CMT len's,BUT-- it has to be a real bright day or they dont work.This opinion is comming from some one with old eyes LOL.Good part of the time I have to use yellows to brightinn things up !!!.
