    Quality lens and frames such as Ranger and Decot are worth the price. Expensive sets such as HiDefSpex are not.

    I use post 4. Great lense, Great service. Quick delivery. Good people to work with, look on their website and give them a call. They can answer any questions that you may have. Only problem with ordring by mail is being to look thru lense to make sure that the color is exactly what you are wanting. For that It is best to find a dealer at a shoot and look at the targets to find whats right for you. not all of us have the same reaction to different colors.

    Price is relative to each person's situation and I suppose if you asked some of the expert folks who swear by HDS, they'd tell you how much better they are...

    I wear Randolph Rangers and have had them for 10 years... a 3-color lens set (excluding the CMT Lens) from a Randolph dealer, with a lifetime warranty on the frame will set you back $150 +/-, today. You're making an investment into quality shooting protection for his eyes - so how much are they worth?

    As Randolph has added lens colors and I've shot at other venues, I've added a color or two over the years to my lens inventory, but kept the same frames all in a nice Randolph quality case. When the nose pads get mucked up, I can inexpensively replace them with fresh ones...

    You can buy inexpensive polycarb shooting glasses... but Randolph, Decot, Post4 and others know their business... I've never regretted having best-quality protection over my eyes when on/in the field.

    Borrow a couple different pair with some different colors to see what works for your son... then make a decision from those experiences.

    regards all,

    Jay

    Bob Allen now has a set which look almost like Randolph and just a little cheaper. Also check Conneticut shotgun or something like that. They have a set with a large number of lenses for a very reasonalbe price.

    You can't go wrong with the Post 4 glasses. I drove over mine with my four wheeler and didn't hurt them a bit. The service is outstanding and the product is second to none.

    Bod Allens are fine I got mine RX from cleartargetoptics.com have four colors of lenses but only really use two everyone's eyes are different. My wife uses Dicot and friends use post 4 so I would say find what you like and if you can try on others to see how they fit and the color all the better.
