Pilla confusion

Recommended Posts

SHAWY

Hi folks,

I am seriously considering a decent pair of shooting glasses and by all accounts Pilla seem to be a fabulous product. However, they are expensive, so I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to buy a single lens pair and then add additional lenses at a later date?  The website doesn't really confirm whether I can do this.  I was looking for a pair with the purple lenses.

Many thanks,

Ian

Yes you can buy single lens sets, last time I looked it was around £300-£350 though. :oops:

Hi, Malmo no longer have Pilla, just a few odd lenses left. Have a look on fleabay or contact Ed Lyons off this site. The nearest shooting ground, where you could try them is Premier Guns at Doveridge.  The reason I am able to quote all of this, is because I have a friend who has been looking for some Pilla's and guess who has been doing the looking  ?  I think he wishes to become a Pilla of the Community  !     :(

Shocker!!!!!   😂😂😂😂

Thanks for the info westley. Very kind of you. They are mega expensive and you could be right about Fleabay. Trouble is finding a pair with the right lenses. Might have to bribe the missus for a Xmas prezzy.

I have a set of Pilla Hawks, which I bought for the comfort of the frames. I found them better that the Panthers, which have the  'hook around the back of the ear'  frames. I have since added 2 extra lenses, bought off the bay at around £45 per set. Realistically, I really only wear 3 colours of lens, a 65 on most days, a 40 when the sun puts in an appearance and a  25 on really bright days ( I think there was 1 in July 2016 !). I may use the 75 if I am inside a wood or on really dark days.

I would also consider the RE Ranger Falcon pro as they do slightly different lens colours

I would save your money my friend and just get good quality clear or slight tint . Yes pills and ranger etc have good optical clarity BUT at stupid money just because its labelled shooting. They won't make you hit any more targets and whatever colour you put on at 10am will be wrong at 10-15.

do you wear fancy tinted glasses for pheasant ?? I suspect not.

You would have seen it better if you had been wearing pilla glasses.

It was a looking rather than a seeing problem....
