Dead Center
Full sun to medium light
35% transmittance


Our 35DC Chroma Shift Technology. Designed to kill the red target element and enhance the gold center of the target. Calms the eye and allows the eye to relax and focus on the dead center of the target with no visual distraction.  Note*: Not recommended for driving.  Has also been used effectively with Black Sporting Clay Targets.

Recommended Sports : Archery (FITA, 10- Ring, 3 Spot, Compound Target), Sporting Clays (Black / Black Rimmed Clays)

Dead Center
Exterior - Medium to Low Light - Interior - Indoor / Outdoor Archery 
60% transmittance


Our 60DC Chroma Shift Technology. Designed to kill the red target element and enhance the center of the target. This DC lens is designed to perform in lower lighting conditions. The density of the effect of red reduction is less than the 35DC but performs extremely well in low light. The design of the lens is to let more light into the eye to register the Chroma Shift effect. This is a perfect compliment to the 35DC when lighting conditions require more light to the eye. Note*: Not recommended for driving. Has also been used effectively with Black Sporting Clay Targets.

sees as a soft edge. The science in this lens creates great edge definition in low light. This technology enhances both orange and pinks targets. The 69MWN is another extension of our very successful 50RHC spectral technology but incorporates elements of “Max” (highlighting orange) and “Neutralization” (Killing green) to produce a unique science in low light that has serious visual acuity.
