    I currently have the Decot Revel glasses, but would like to change to a different frame that offers more glass area above the eye.

    What other brands should I consider? Those of you that have tried Decot Hy Wyd and other brands, which ones do you prefer?

    Since you already have Decot, they have your prescription on file, and a phone call will have your new glasses in hand in less than a week. I have HY WYD and like them very much. The frames are tough and lens changes easy. Mine are going on 5yrs now.

    I believe the problem stems from two aspects, in my opinion... (1) the nose bridge is not adjustable for height and (2) the lens style is lower profile.

    (1) I found that the Randolph Ranger Classic/XL had a very large lens that completely covered the orbit of the eye and (2) the XL had a 3-position adjustable nose bridge for height which allowed the user to actually raise the glasses higher on your face...

    Now... the XL has been discontinued, but the frame may still available or you could consider the Randolph Edge which incorporates the standard Ranger styling, adjustable nose bridge and new "Edge" lens design which allows for improved ventilation, but does not limit coverage at the brow...

    My $0.02, plus... speak with Wayne Morgan @ Morgan Optical Sports Glasses...

    Good luck on finding what works best for you,

    Jay

    I just got a pair of the Pilla's. I have only shot with them tice so far and do really like them. I got the Panthers, but like the other post above say, they are expensive. I like the no post to catch my pheriphial vision.

    My son has a pair of hidefspecs which are now pillas. He loves them. I just purchased a pair of post4optics. So far I really like them. I got the 3 lense set for 210.00. The pillas are like 539.00.
