    What's the best color lense to use shooting orange targets under lights? I use prescription lenses so I need to get it right the first time, too expensive for experimentation.

    i normally shoot with clear lenses but late last year i got some decot light orange (just a hint of color)......WOW.

    those are awesome lenses under the lights.

    call decot - they'll steer you right.

    ec90t, as far as I know, I don't have any deficiencies. I use vermillion because it seems to help me against a green background. I was considering pale yellow, or a light gold thinking it might also be helpful on a dull day or late afternoon. My frames are Randolph Ranger.

    I used to use yellow. Now I use a very pale Lt target Orange, and very much prefer it for shooting under lights or on cloudy days.

    A very light yellow or light orange works best for me. Decot also offers a non reflective coating. The coating helps eliminate the reflective "fuzziness" of the lights on your bead and the bird. Well worth it if you shoot in night leagues, etc.
