My Phantoms showed up today and can't wait to give them a try tomorrow :)

If anyone could help with how to change the lenses,I was able to do it but not sure if I did it correctly. Read through the booklet and didn't see any instructions on how to.

Thanks :)

to change the lenses, just pull down on the middle of the lens and it will pop out. Then when you install the new lens, just make sure that the lens tabs fit into the frame and then just push up.

Andromeda is correct. And don't worry about possibly breaking anything - the frame is unbreakable polymer and lenses are unbreakable polycarbonate.

Good luck and safe shooting.

Thanks {hs# I kind of did that on accident and got them changed but wanted to double check. Good thing I keep lens cleaner in my bag :lol: as I got finger prints all over them :D

I also guess that on the Sun Shields that nose piece stays with them ? and it doesn't come off to put on the other two.

Correct regarding the nose pieces.

to reduce finger prints I use the included bag to remove the lenses, I just wrap the lens up in it, and then remove the lens, works like a charm. For the price point, I don't think you can get a better pair of shooting glasses. I'm so happy with mine!

^^^ Same here :) After trying both lenses I much prefer the HD's, Purple has pretty much been my go to's for a while but things just look sharper and the clay pop's better with the HD ones. Can't wait to see what shows up next year as far as colors go.

I agree with you on the HD orange/brown color. It's a nice color, and I have always used Purple's for the longest time, but have noticed that in the woods those HD's work just as well.

I hope that Ranger releases other colors, as there appears to be a demand now, a yellow and a lighter purple, and or a really dark brown/red might be the way to go.

I'm happy with mine, and I think for the price point of $149 you really can't go wrong with these.
