    I've used them for 4 years with the prescription insert and the bifocal option. They are very light and comfortable to wear and visability is very good. They have become popular among sporting clays shooters where target definition is critical. A number of pro golfers use them as well.

    Because the prescription insert is close to the eye, finding the optical center is not an issue. Also they don't have to ride high on your face like the other style shooting glasses.

    I shot with several guys down south- they had a local dealer in their club- so they had a bunch of them

    they quit wearing them and were wearing something different-- all trying to sell the ones they owned-

    I havent ever used them myself

    My problem with them was that there is so much frame that it gets in the way of an unobstructed continuious view of the target. They were great for pistol and rifle, but not clay targets.

    I tried them for awhile, and while the lenses themselves are good, the main problem was with the nose piece, it would come apart easily, and I tried repeatedly to contact the manufacturer but never talked to a person or heard back from them when I left a message.
