hey i have some v force profilers and the lenses aren't tinted and it gets pretty hard to see sometimes with the bright sun, but i'm afraid that if i get tinted lenses it will be too hard to see when its not really sunny out. With tinted lenses is it hard at all to see when it's not sunny out?

thanks

You're vision won't be effected at all with tinted lense. In fact some tints help you see better in different weather conditions.

I used to use a smoke lense on my Profilers in sunny conditions and it was so much more easy on the eyes and they don't effect your vision one bit! And that's coming from someone who wears glasses!

But when it's not sunny out and was overcast or it was raining, I used to stick in a yellow tinted lense. Although the smoke lenses were good, wearing the yellow lense really brightened up the environment allowing you to see opponents movements a little earlier ans crisper whereas the smoke lense didn't define you opponents as crisp, but they don't completely blind you!

However, I base my experience on woodsball, it is probably different in airball/supair.

There are photo-chromatic lenses available for Profilers. Meaning in direct sunlight they change colour. Basically when the sun is hitting your lens it will darken but when you are in darker conditions it will remain clear. I personally do not know how effective they are but I've heard good things.

I bought a pair of the photo chromatic lenses and they work great. It adjusts to how much light is out there and I haven't had any problems with it. I also wear glasses btw :) I've been thinking about buying a pair of the yellow lenses specifically for the woods, but I think I'll be good with the photo chromatic ones for awhile.

I personally like my photo chromatic lenses for sunny days and amber/yellow for overcast day. For woodsball that is.

I have the smoked lens on the E-Vents and sometimes there are weird lines that show on the lens when the sun hits it from a weird angle, which makes it sometimes difficult to see. But for all I know the profilers don't have this problem.

My experience. The dark lens works better in supair, the yellow for woods and the mirror like fancy lenzes :) look cool but only work if its friggin sunny, but get scratched pretty easy.

I love my tinted lenses on my profilers, but if you get bunkered and take a few to the mask, the tint will chip/wear off.
