Has anyone used the new Pilla shooting glasses?

I am interested in the Panther model.

I am also interested to hear which lenses folks are using.

I absolutely love mine - have been shooting with them for three to four years now. Change to them after wearing Oakley's. The part I like best is they don't fog up and don't restrict vision. Recently had small issue with them and received excellent, courteous, and fair service. The problem was only encountered after wearing them for more than 100,000 rounds.

I highly recommend them.

I have nearly all of the lenses, never wearing any less than 25. I wear the 40's 95% of the time, and the 65 occasionally.

Hope this helps.

I have had the sebring model for 3 years with 4 sets of lens I also never even carry the dark ones
with me. I just had cataract surgery in both eyes so I don't need RX anymore and am going to order the sebring G2's as I have trouble with them fogging sometimes.
I am going to order the Max orange in 45 and 65 but I am confused about the HD and the HDX for the other color. If anyone knows the difference please jump in.
They are over-priced but after Decots, Rangers, Zeiss, and Serengetis, they are the best. :D

I've been using the Panther Post since the middle of the season. I've used them all. Ranger (original, Plus, XL, XLW), Decot Hy-Wyd, Oakley (Radar and MFrame), Zeiss Scopz, and probably some others i'm forgetting. Panthers are head and shoulders above the rest. I would say they are MAYBE a touch clearer than the Oakleys, but the biggest difference (for me at least) was having a the best fitting set of glasses I've ever put on. They are the only glasses I've ever used that don't block out some of my vision, or allow me to see b/w the lens and my nose.

BTW, Pilla is in CT, depending on where you are, it might be worth the trip. i'm sure they'd be happy to help.

Skeet Man,

I live in the Hartford area. Pilla can't be that far.

Thanks.

An hour SW of you according to google. It'd definitely be worth the drive.

Pilla has a retail location on the main drag coming into town in Ridgefield, CT, just south of Danbury. It is a white building on the north side of the street.
