Lens Color in Shooting Glasses

Post by xring2245 on 4/2/2015, 9:02 pm

I am also a trap shooter and have three pairs of Decot glasses with various lens colors.  Generally, I use yellow for indoor shooting and vermilion, rose, or orange colored lenses for shooting outdoors.  Have you found any particular color to work under special lighting conditions?

I see through rose colored glasses. It really helps to diminish the disappointment in my scores.

I am also a shotgunner.  I think the various orange, rose, vermillions, etc. are designed to enhance the pickup of the orange target and suppress a green foliage or blue sky background.  In bullseye it is pretty much all about black/white contrast, with iron sights anyway.  You might find a yellow to be helpful on a really overcast or hazy day.  Otherwise a neutral may well work better overall.  But it is highly personal/subjective.

Yellow indoors and when it is cloudy, gray when the sun is out.

I have been buying colored lenses from that guy at Perry set up next to the AMU trailer. I have his card at my shop if you want to call him. He can dye his lens any color you want. I have the Rose, Pumpkin Orange, Purple, Pale Yellow and Clear. With your prescription he can get any lens you need. The frames are made so the lenses pop in and out with ease. Furthermore he can change the color anytime you want, he can remove one color and dye it another, I had my yellow changed to pale yellow. Never knowing what the conditions at Perry will be I have an assortment to adjust to any condition while on the line.

I still use my Decot's from my skeet shooting days.
Have yellow, bronze and vermillion.
Bronze worked pretty well in Arizona with the bright sun but after experimenting for awhile just went with the vermillion full time cause it enhances the red dot.
Yellow worked pretty good for iron sights or just used my regular clear prescription glasses.
