What color of lenses work best for you when shooting at night under lights? I know everyone sees differently but I’m wearing light rust and struggling to pick out the orange birds. Prescription was just recently updated.

My Wiley X Sabers set comes in light rust, vermilion and grey. I could purchase clear or yellow, if that would help.

I wear the palest yellow Randolf Rangers that I can find, under our lights.

I never had any luck with anything but clear.

Clear or the lightest yellow you can find.

Clear is best IMO. I have a very light yellow that isn't too bad, only because Pilla doesn't have a clear for my frame.

I like #10 yellow for night shooting, I also suggest you get a anti reflective coating on the lens to reduce glare.

I have only ever shot under the lights at the NSC. What helped me the most was using side blinders like a trap shooter because it stopped the lights reflecting on the inside of my lenses on some stations, which drove me crazy. Lightest lenses I had on hand.

Practically clear with an anti-reflective coating...like a Pilla 99AR for example.
