    My 16 yrs scores are staying consistent with my daylight scores but on handicap my scores at night are lower. (24 1/2 yds) I tried changing the lite pipe on my Citori from green to white to no avail so I'm wondering if this is a common ailment? Even shooting from the 21 yard line I'm shooting good but can't figure whats wrong or if this is a common ailment among shooters at night. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Hey - I don't care what anyone says, shooting trap at night under the lights is a different game from shooting trap in the day light - they just do not compare - and a shootoff under the lights is not a shoot off of the same game as what got you there in the day light!. the beav

    What color lens do you use? When the sun goes down and you have to view targets under the lights I change to my yellow lenses. This allows for more contrast and easier to see the targets.

    I've tried V-lite, light yellow and just using my clear glasses.

    I don't know why? But most of the good night shooters I talk to say they have to shoot a higher shooting gun at night. I know some All americans add a washer to the comb for shootoffs under the lights.
