HDR lens for indooes

What Grillz lens works best indoors? Are any HDR lenses good indoors? I know the blue and purple tinted ones are darker but how are the lighter ones? Or should I stick to clear? I'm playing at O'hare in Chicago in a few weeks and I rarely play indoors.

If you're buying a new lens specifically for playing indoors and don't have any lenses already, I'd get clear or amber. They allow more light to pass through and are also cheaper than HDR lenses.

I haven't played indoors before, but I think the lens I have (supernova) would block out too much light.

HDR lenses work well for indoor, actually. If you're able to try it out somehow, I think you'll agree. That being said I use Amber lenses almost exclusively when playing indoors...just a personal thing.

I would go with the lighter tint HDRs but yes they should work for indoors. I have worn them dusk and overcast with no issues.

If you really got angry at the title misspelling a letter, I have bad news for you.

Clear lense indoors, HDR outside on the sunny days, smoke or amber/yellow on somewhat sunny/indoor days. Save the mirrored and HDR's for outside

I'd only ever use clear at an indoor, for sure.

I play at Ohare frequently. Even though it's well lit imo, you'll find out there's a few darker spots and wish your clear lens was in.
