Looking through a yellow lense makes it hard to distinguish between all objects. Also a yellow lense stands out a lot easier, making you an easier target.

i had one for a while too. For me, it increased contrast, so I could see the difference between objects better. Only drawback was it made my eyes hurt after a whole day's play.
your mileage may vary.
Think about it though, shooting glasses are usually amber tinted. Must be something to it.

my team mate uses a yellow lens and loves it. I havent tried one yet, but it seems like it would help a lot in the woods or a dark day.

I've been using a yellow lens for a couple years now, and for outdoor play it's cool. It cuts down on glare and improves contrast, but It isn't my first chioce for indoor. Also, as a side benefit it kills the "flash" on your lens when the sun reflects off it.

Yellow lenses are great for outdoor play. but i prefer clear colored because I play indoors also and I hate switching lense colors.

I use a Yellow lense and I love it. Its kinda weird like putting your mask on at first everythings yellow then your eyes kinda adjust to it(and it does help contrast) then when you take it off everything is blue for a little while then your eyes adjust again. I love it and I play tournaments.

Yes the yellow lenses do increase contrast. It is similar to using yellow fog lights on your car. If you live in foggy areas, you could just put on some yellow-tinted glasses and you'd see a big difference.

I've used yellow lenses for about 2-3 years now, I love them. Maybe that's just me. A teammate of mine has amber... I don't personally care for that, though. They dim where the yellow seem to highlight. When it's cloudy, it seems like a normal day... and when sunny, it's still just fine. I've got no complaints and have no plans to switch to a non-yellow lens.
