    What is everyone's take on blinders for shooting glasses?
    I watch Phil, Harlan, and the likes. It doesn't appear they use them.
    Basically I am wondering if it hampers the ability to pick up the second bird in doubles. What do you think? I have been told it helps eliminate distractions...Good or bad?

    Blinders will help reduce Sun glare. The Sun is usually behind us when shooting trap and this can result in some glare on our lenses. For some, they also reduce the air flow around the glasses and promote condensation on the lens. They will help reduce some, but not all, distractive movement to the side.

    Harlan, Phil et. al. have developed the ability to block out distracting movements through concentration.

    I have not.

    I use side shields.

    They reduce glare plus extra shade which keeps your eyes more relaxed

    1) Shade and glare

    2) smoke, safety - a little more there if something "happens" next to you

    3) keeps cross wind out your eyes while staring at targets (got dry eye yet?)

    4) helps block view of others, not a problem when you're locked in and focused; big problem when you notice the fidgets

    I have used factory, plastic, leather. I have some fabric over liner ones made by Dennis Cates. They have logos on the sides and are lighter and more comfortable than leather or plastic.
