Should I use coloured filters and how should I choose which one to use?
The choice and use of coloured filters has always been a subject of discussion among shooters of all disciplines. It is a question of striking a balance between general guidelines according to physical properties of different coloured lenses and personal feelings. Generally speaking, if a coloured filter can improve your aiming ability without causing undue stress on your eyes, then it is the right one to use. Champion currently supplies a series of high quality coloured filters made of coated optical glass. (Glass is prefered to plastic because it has less distortion and is not as easily scratched.) Each filter is fitted on a spring loaded clip-on lens holder, so that you can put the filter on or take it off in seconds, even while you are wearing the glasses. Champion coloured filters come in three sizes (42mm, 32mm, and 25mm) and five colours (yellow, brown, grey, orange, ACE (blue)). In the event that you want a ecustom-made coloured filter of your own, Champion offers you a clip-on lens holder without lens. So you can take this lens holder to your local optician and ask them to cut any filter to fit your clip-on.
