    After reading an article in the 5th issue of Trapshooting USA I have become very interested in Post 4 Optics. But like anything else, I would like to hear opinions from anyone who has actually used them, especially the new "Glow" lenses.

    Thanks in advance

    I use Post 4 and Ranger lenses. For low light the Desert Glow is great. There isn't much difference between that lense and their Vermillion. On the other hand Randolphs CMT is hard to beat in bright sunlight.

    Ideal with Mike for my Post 4's & Waybe or Harold @ Morgan Optical for my Radolph's

    Post 4 and owner Mike Renard are the best to work with on any of your eye problems. Mike is a shooter has been grinding optics for ever so knows what you are talking about when you have a problem.

    I used Randolphs for many years and found them to work good. On a whim I called Post 4 and ordered a pair. Mike was super helpful. I love mine.

    Post 4 Optics, are far superior to Decot, the frames are titanium, plus their service is unbeatable. If the lens break, they replace it for free, unless you drive over them.

    I agree with all said above. I find post 4 only weakness is they do not have adjustable nose pieces. I used to have them and switched to Ranger XLW w/CMT colored lens and adjustable nose piece and in bright sun there is none, nil, zilch better.

    I just purchased 3 pair of glow lenses. Copper glow, dessert glow, and orange glow, they are far superioir to any lenses I have. The nice thing is they will make them for any frame. I have Rangers. My problem is I am very sensitive to light and glare, and often squint even in lo light situations, so often times I would have to wear dark lenses just to avoid squinting, at the cost of targets being washwd out. With the Glow I dont have to use dark lenses and the glow really makes targets pop. I think they are great.

    I have Decot, Ranger, and Post Four Rx lens. I like Post Four by far the best, as an added plus, Mike is super to work with and does everything possible to make sure his customers are happy. I cannot say enough about his service.

    Can be very bright here in San Antonio, personally I feel the orange lens work best for me. CMT's were a little fuzzy.

    I have a pair Post 4 and I like them. I wish they would get their computer site straighted out so you can just order and make a purchase over the internet without having to call them. my lenses were falling out of my frames and one lens broke when it hit the concrete. the other lens i scratched trying to put the lens in the frame. i was charged for new lenses, but was sent new frames free of charge. over all, i like them.

    I wish they had an adjustable nose piece. Is there a way to have some post 4 frames made with them?

    Hello to all, I have been with Mike and Post 4 Optics for over seven years now. I have seen this company develop over the years from there best in the business plano and prescription lenses to there top notch polaroids, and no into these new technology unmatch glow lenses. I remember sitting with Mike in the grand stands at Vandalia when the first glow lenses were completed. They were just large round lenses in several different colors. We sat there looking throw them all noticing not only did the targets jump out but so did anything orange in the surrounding area. I was very impressed as were all around me. I began shooting in them as soon as they were available and have never looked back since. Companies out there can match the colors but they can not match the unique chemicals and processes with which Mike and his chemists and engineers have developed to make these a completely new technology lense. The detail and clarity are unmatched. I had to order my first set of prescription lenses last year right before the Grand. As usual Mike impressed me once again, providing the perfect prescription for my shooting. My eyes never hurt or gave me problems with the Rx maybe being to strong or not strong enough it was perfect. This comes from the fact that Mike grinds his lenses, out of ZEISS blanks, to everyones own prescription. There are no pre cast lenses here. Although we don't offer over night prescription our turn around times are very impressive.

    I opened a dealership in the past years and now this year I am on the road full time. I have an unmatched inventory on bored and am working with Mike directly. He just stayed with me and we sold out of the same trailer at the Spring Grand in Tucson. If you are wanting to see these lenses in person and demo a pair while actually shooting you can see me at the following shoots:

    March
    Arizona State Shoot(Tucson, AZ)

    April
    Southwestern Grand (San Antonio, TX)

    Ohio State Shoot (Morengo, OH)

    July
    Montana State Shoot (Great Falls, MT)
    Western Zone (Anaconda, MT)
    Iowa State Shoot (Cedar Rapids, IA)
    Central Zone (Bunker Hill, IL)

    August
    Grand American- At this shoot we will be there for Mike he will be working in our trailer instead of bringing his own trailer back (Sparta, IL)

    We are also planning on attending the Heartland Grand, Westy Hogans, Northeastern Grand, and the Missouri Fall Handicap.

    I am also carrying a small inventory of demo's of the NEW BLASER TRAP COMBO. If you would like to look at and shoot this new gun please stop into my trailer and have a cup of coffee with me. We are accepting any and all orders on these items. Please feel free to contact me at any time. My cell is 406-565-0410 and my email is above. Looking forward to meeting you all at these upcoming shoots, if your not interested in any please stop by and have a cup of coffee and introduce yourself.

    Post-2..........No you will have to get new prescription lenses unfortunately. With all of your lenses being custom ground to your prescription and to a perfect clarity plano we have to start from scratch for each lense. No short cuts here my friend only QUALITY! If you would like more information or want to place an order please e-mail me or PM me. I would be glad to assist you in any way possible. I'm on Mountain Standard time until the 2nd of April. Feel free to call anytime and thanks for your interest in our products. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
