Lense Light Transmission % Chart

This chart is based off the one in the v-force manual...it should be your guide to "which lense should I get?"

clear 75 +/- 2% lens for all conditions
amber 80 +/- 2% lens for cloudy conditions
smoke 45 +/- 2% lens good for sunny conditions
mirror blue 25 +/- 2% lense good for very sunny conditions do not use in low light conditions
mirror silver 20 +/- 2% lense good for very sunny conditions do not use in low light conditions
mirror gold 16 +/- 2% lense good for very sunny conditions do not use in low light conditions

i have found that mirrors dont work to well for indoors also, cant see the flight of the ball comin at you.

Amber seems to be the best for indoor in my opinion, mirror lenses are really hard to see indoor. I usually just stick with a clear lense all the time.

Do you think this will apply for most lenses? Cuz i was thinking of buying a mirror for my Events when (if) they arrive

amber is lowlight, phil if you remeber fungunz's indoor, they have light on half of the field, which sucks, cuz you could use two lenses, i hate fades they always throw me off.

wow thanks for posting that. I have a smoke lens for my Profilers and was not going to get the mirror lenses, because I thought they were the same. I am going to get some now for bright days.

Ya, I played at Seek and Destroy's indoor too, they are pretty dim lighted in there also.

I have mirror, amber, smoke and clear lenses for just about any type of light. The amber definitely make things pop and get really clear. I use them indoor, which helps a lot. The mirrors are good until they get the mirror coating rubbed off. Then it's kinda like a funky light show inside the mask. I hardly ever use the smoke or the clear anymore.

I think this is a good chart for vforce lenses, but a lot of people don't use vforce. Does this apply to all lenses, of just this line? I wish that they (vforce) would get some lenses like JT - the black to mirror or blue or whatever colors there are fades are pretty cool!

Amber is great... It's sharp indoors, and cuts the sun a great deal outdoors... I use amber lenses for everything... Wonderful...

I personally think that Amber is too bright on sunny days. I prefer my mirrors on outside play, plus you get the cool, "I can't see your eyes" thing going on.

The only problem with the mirror are the issues that vike described and the fact that they are frightfully expensive.
