Upgraded to Decot ColorMag Lens Color

I was losing focus on targets and thought it was time to change lens color.  

I ordered a color that I thought would do the trick. Also, upgraded and ordered the polycarbonate lenses with anti-reflective coating.

About a week later I receive a call from Decot  asking why I (a long time customer) was changing lens colors?

We went back in forth (mostly me listening) and he recommended ColorMag (a purple lens) in Lt Med.  The broacher says the lens color utilizes spectral isolation to provide unbelievable color contrast.


Reds and Orange really pop.  I didn't know my red van was so red! A stack of targets really catches the eye.

Been out one time and happy with the results.

Also, for years I've used the Decot finger print size (bottom of the lens) bifocals.  This time I opted for "no" bifocal in the right lens. I no longer do a lot of scoring and for the amount of reading I do with my shooting glasses I thought I could get away with just a bifocal in the left lens.  So far no issues.

I won't be participating in any formal shoots...

With rare exception I won't be participating in any formal shoots for the remainder of the summer.

I've gone out several times this year feeling under the weather and having a hard time making it through 25 targets, let alone 100.

Attended a shoot today and had excellent AM results (was feeling good).  In the PM (second part of the match), not so excellent and it cost me a top spot. Not fun when you go out and your not physically at 100%.

I had already skipped a couple of shoots I was planning on attending this year and after today better to cancel the season and work through what ails me.

Still do practice, as I can take a break when needed.

I have several shoots on the calendar that I will be attending with camera in hand.  Saying that, I was having a hard time keeping my energy levels up while running around with camera at todays shoot.
