    Brian,it depends on your shooting habits, night shooting a yellow tint is needed
    daytime a red or purple lens is needed, all depending upon back ground,color of birds, sporting clays- in the woods? etc three sets of lenses is norm,two minimal.

    I have a Post 4 frame, had Mike make me 3 sets of his HD lenses in Bi-focal---I could not see the relationship of the beads without the bi-focals, I need the beads to check my gun mount, besides feel----also if you want to check your chamber between shots you'll need the bi-focal---Phil

    I selected the Ranger XLW, with a single vision prescription insert. The glasses have three different colors; medium purple, orange, and vermillion (my favorite).

    I opted not to have bi-focals or variable lenses in the insert. There are too many distractions in those types of lenses. My optometrist specifically set the prescription so I have clear vision from 30" to infinity.

    I bought mine from Texas Shooters Optical. Outstanding service. I had my glasses exactly one week after I ordered them. Tom Donahue is a real professional and superb to work with.

    Best,
    Dennis

    I have shot with glasses for over 30 years. My correction got to 5+ in both eyes. I like the Randolph clip on concept, it was cheaper over time and they have a special lense that will not work with corrective lenses of over +2 but work well as clip-ons. The problem is weight. Personal preference, governs the snap in frame suppliers. I have used Decot for years, I also own Post 4s. Color is a matter of what works with YOUR eyes. Go to a big shoot, someone will have numerous sample lenses to see what works for you. I think bi focals are also a personal choice.
