Action Shooting Sports requires critical vision to succeed.
Pilla has created unique light management system and frame geometry to provide the Shooter with a competitive advantage. Pilla has partnered with World Champion Max Michel to produce a winning kit… Max in his own words sets up why Pilla is excited to take on the world of Action Shooting Sports.
“With over 20 years of Action Shooting experience, I have always looked for ways to become better at what I do. I would look over my guns, ammo, gear, etc.… and try to find anything that would allow me to get a better result. In my sport, taking off a fraction of second could mean the difference between winning and losing a World Championship.
That said, when a buddy of mine showed me his new eyewear on a range in Europe during the summer of 2014, I knew immediately I missed a huge part of what I was seeing. Pilla Performance Eyewear opened my eyes to an entirely new way to look at eyewear as equipment for the Action Shooter.
In years past, I have always looked at eyewear as simply a way to protect my eyes from ricochet or debris. All the while, completely ignoring the optical disadvantage I was at due to lack of knowledge. For example, in dark lighting, I would find my self wearing clear lenses with difficulty being able to see the targets clearly, not knowing there was a better alternative. There are several examples I could list here but in short, it's time we start looking at eyewear as a piece of equipment to help our performance and not just a form of safety. This is where Pilla excels and separates themselves from the competitors.

"Pilla has been around for many years aiding shooters from Shotgun, to Archery, to long range sniper work and more. They are the real deal and I am excited to be a part of what they are doing. The first time I put on the eyewear I knew immediately there was something different here. I called and set up a meeting via Skype with the CEO, Philip Pilla, who was nice enough to speak with me. All the specifics that I found personally, such as; comfort, effective usage of various lighting solutions, unobstructed view, and amazing clarity was put into words that I could understand. Everything he was explaining to me was exactly what I wanted to say about my experience but I just didn't know how to describe it at that time."
