    Pros and cons on shooting glasses and which ones are considered the best and why? I am new and currently shooting a wrap around type and have been told they create a false mirrage sometimes and then i notice most shooters shoot flat ones with color, what are some of the better colors and why?

    Hi Wyd Decot are popular. As far as color goes it is best to look through some different color lenses inorder to find the color that works best for you. HMB

    While my personal experience is using Randolph Engineering's "Ranger/Ranger XLs" in 68MM; Decot, Post4, HiDefSpex and others are excellent also...

    If you can wear contacts, I would do so, so you can use "plano" polycarbonate lenses which offer the maximum in impact resistance... if you require Rx lenses, my recommendation is to stay away from CR39 plastic because impact resistance is poor. An alternative to polycarb for better optical quality is Trivex.

    Personally, I prefer the largest lens size to maximize protection of the eye "orbit". Randolph also manufacturers their "XLW" which offers a bit more modern styling.

    Ranger systems offer the cable wrap-around temples or you can have the "skull" temple as an option. I have used and recommended Harold and Wayne Morgan of Morgan Optical in Olean NY for more than 10 years. Wayne has made dyed Rx lenses for my guys as well with excellent results and customer service.
