Weekday shoots are getting dark early and weekends are getting cloudy at this time of year, so a change in lens might be required to help pick out clays in poorer lighting conditions. If you are in need of a new set of lenses, or even a new set of shooting glasses entirely, Clay Shooting has composed a list of some of the best products on the market to keep you shooting safely throughout the off-season. That way, you can be in mid-season form by the time shooting starts in 2015 and move your average into the next class up.
These are now available with the new Photosport PHOTOCHROMIC prescription lenses. They have been specifically designed for clay and game shooters. The lens changes according to light conditions to optimises clays in low-light conditions, and they are made from polycarbonate for suitable protection. The frame has thin, wrap-around stems that avoid breaking the seal of your earmuffs and reduce movement after recoil. They are available in orange, yellow and purple photochromic options.
This set from Pilla has perfected the wrap-around lenses so that they avoid distortion in your peripheral vision. It also features Megol rubber that is wrapped around a titanium core to make them robust and lightweight. One of the best selling points is the Snap-Tech lens-changing system that allows you to swap colours for better filtration according to the conditions on the day. It is now half price while stocks last by clicking the price below.
Pitched as the high-quality shooting eyewear without the big price tag, this stylish model has a frameless, rimless design with small adjustable nose pads. The Class 1 optical grade polycarbonate one-piece lens is shatterproof and impact-resistant and complies with the CPSA’s EN166 requirements. Available in eight different colours and a four-lens interchangeable set, this product is made exclusively for Sunglasses for Sport, but you can call them for a list of retailers to see for yourself.
A new range launched onto the scene this year is Castellani’s C-Mask. These too make use of the Carl Zeiss lenses and the frame is fully adjustable with a removable nosepiece for switching them when required. Additional lenses are £60.
This model was developed last year with individual coloured lenses that help shooters with cross-dominance issues overcome the problem by putting a smoke-coloured lens in one eye. They have a detachable brow pad, and rubber fitting on the temple and nose for comfort.
Long been established as one of the more popular brands on the market, this durable design features wrap-around arms that are thin to avoid breaking the seal of your earmuffs, and they come with a prescription lens option.
