Learn how to use our colors. We have four main types of colors, Reducing, Striking, Neutral and Technical. The label on your rod is marked with an N, R, S, or T. Technical glasses, do not need reducing or striking, but they do have special working notes. There are also 2 subcategories, Rs/Rx= reset then reduce, and R/S =reducing or striking.
