If youre anything like me you researched 20+ spotting scopes ranging from $50-$2000 and decided the $2000 one is clearly worth it but you cant soend that much, you've also decided the $50 spotter is garbage. This is perfectly in between. Super clear glass. (I did invest in putting it on a good carbon fiber tripod for my back country bear hunt). This thing flew cross country and got bounced around a pack and the back of a truck for 7 days. No issues. Clear and sharp. I could tell you what clothes people were wearing at 2 miles and make out their faces. The eye relief could be more generous for people with glasses but trust me thats my only complaint about this. Absolutly worth the price. 20 degrees to 90 degrees, snow, mud, rain no issue, no fogging, no cloudiness. Is it a swarovski? No. But you know that. Is it what you need for 90% of back country hunts? Yes. Would def recommend for an elk, bear, or proghorn hunt. Maybe not ram or goats or muleys (if youre trying to pick out an antler at 1 mile). You know what I mean.
Great scope for the money. Fairly sharp focus at lower magnification ranges. Tripod a bit flimsy but still adequate for stationary use. I would highly recommend for if you are looking for at scopes under 600 dollars.
For the price, it’s hard to really say anything bad about this. The glass is clearly not as clear or good compared to the Vortex models, but is still a very quality spotting scope. Functions are easy to manipulate. Even when dialing into the target, it’s smooth and easy to track. The weight is minimal, and I love the detached lens covers it comes with. Along with the protective carrying case this thing is a steal for the price.
