cosine indicators

Has anyone used either the Horus vision cosine indicators or sniper tools indicator? i like the little level on the Horus but its $150 vs. $100 for the sniper tools design. Is there any other models out there? Are they worth it?


thanks!

I have been doing some research on this topic over the last few months and decided to go with the sniper tools version. Although I personally have never used either one, the sniper one to me looked real rugged and has the runs on the board. It seems to be more widely used by users on this site.

I looked at getting the new HV version with the scope level built in, but they look to big in my mind , where the st version looks real neat and robust. I will fit both level and cos indicator to the scope tube.

Just my 2 cents worth ?

I use "W's" Sniper Tools ACI along with a ScopeLevel and it works for me.

Hi,
I use Sniper Tools ACI, and a ScopeLevel and I'm happy with them.
I mounted Sniper Tool ACI on the scope tube with a Weaver base, and is strong enough for rugged condition where I hunt.

I have a Horus version on order and for the money it is two units in one. The cheaper levels are $30 and the cosine's are about $80??? So for a little bit more you can have both in one unit and still have room on the scope for a Leuopld drop chart in the front.

As far as the unit itself.....I don't know yet, still waiting on it but as soon as I get it I will do a good review.
