Target Sports

Marksmen and women require a good view of the target and must be able to focus accurately upon the sights, to align with the target.

 

Some target sports are performed monocularly (with one eye), where your vision and accuracy are key.  Whilst others are of a dynamic discipline (using both eyes), where eye speed and visual tracking are important factors, as well as clarity of vision.

 

Prescription Option

 

  • Sunglasses can have your prescription glazed into the frame
  • An insert can be placed behind the frame with your prescription
  • You can wear contact lenses, with the performance sports eyewear over the top

 

Lens Guide

 

  • Anti-reflective lenses provide better vision, to help judge distances and improve accuracy
  • Polarised lenses for reducing glare

 

Lens Tint

 

BRONZE – Should be used for skeet, clay-pigeon and trap shooting, it is also the tint of choice for hunting

YELLOW – Offers the best contrast for black on white target shooting

ORANGE – Offers the best contrast for orange targets

RED AND PINK TINTS – Good for black, green and orange targets, as well as for hunting.  This colour tint also reduces the effects of green backgrounds like grass, trees and shrubs

 

We recommend the tint not to be too dark, as this results in an enlarged pupil, which can adversely affect the shooters performance.

 

Frame design

 

  • Similar style to aviator sunglasses, with a wire frame
  • Large lenses for greater protection and a wider field of vision
  • Temples have sprung hinges which allow the frame to flex without breaking when recoil occurs
  • Curl sides on temples allow the frame to stay in place
  • Adjustable nose pads, so frame can be placed in the optimum position
  • Adjustable bridges which can be placed in several locking positions, so that the frame can be position differently for each shot
