Tracer Rose Explained

By Kirsti Smouse

August 10, 2015

You know that saying about seeing the world through rose-colored glasses? It’s not just a saying, it’s an actual thing. While rose tinted lenses may not make you an eternal optimist, they can enhance your depth-perception, reduce eye strain, and maybe even improve your short game.

A general rule when trying to determine what tint you need for a specific environment is to deal with the rule of opposites. For example, pink is a complementary color to green, meaning it’s on the opposite side of the color wheel. Rose tinted lenses allow all rose light to pass through but absorb green light.

Golf courses, with all their grass, tend to be saturated in green. Tracer Rose lenses highlight red and yellow hues in the color green that will help you see the contours of the putting surface, pick up the slope variables, see the cut, and how these will affect the way the ball will potentially roll. Also, the white of the ball will especially stand out against the green.

Tracer Rose lenses are also a good option for socked in days on the mountain. Pink and rose tinted lenses are often said to be the more comfortable to wear all day and reduce eyestrain. Their ability to enhance contrast means you can better see any shadows in the snow, emphasizing bumps, bare patches, or icy spots.

At 30% light transmission, these lenses can be worn in the sun, shade, or overcast conditions. You won't even have to take them off if your ball lands in the trees. But that never happens, right?

Whether you're hitting the links for a relaxing afternoon with friends or playing in a competitive tournament, Tracer Rose lenses could prove as invaluable a tool as your driver. Check them out here.
