Shooting Gazette - - October 2017 -



billed as ‘the ul­ti­mate shoot­ing sun­glasses’, this in­trigu­ing product could be ev­ery­where in a few sea­sons’ time, if not ear­lier. While some guns might be a bit sniffy about don­ning a pair of fu­tur­is­tic-look­ing glasses that look like the ones Dutch mid­fielder edgar Davids used to wear, those who do give these a shot will find them­selves im­me­di­ately more com­fort­able when fac­ing the kind of blind­ing sun which sinks lower and shines brighter as the sea­son pro­gresses.

OK, you can’t get away from the fact the sun is still there but when you look to­wards it its glare is se­verely soft­ened within a tenth of a sec­ond by the small sen­sor be­tween your eyes, leav­ing only a muted orb be­tween you and your quarry. You can there­fore track the bird for a lot longer and have a bet­ter chance of bring­ing it down cleanly. the frames are con­structed well and are com­fort­able on the face, but just be mindful the LCD lenses are del­i­cate so should be han­dled with care. try a pair as soon as you can and thank us later.
