Re: Best scope cover for ATACR?

Hi guys,

Sorry I haven't been able to keep up with all the boards. Yes, I do have ATACR caps ready for order, they should start shipping in a couple weeks:





As for whether these are worth the price, obviously that can only be answered by the end user. I'd encourage people to read through the comments of people who have used them on that SH thread for an indication of how actual end users feel about it.

Already, probably 1/2 my orders are from return customers--they'll order one set of caps for one scope...a couple weeks later they order a set for every scope they have....

I got caught in a viscous rainstorm last season when some really big whitetails were running around (peak of the rut), but I couldn't see a damn thing through my scope because I had no caps...because I had already broken the damn BC's I had.... I know at that point in time I would have paid a ton for a decent set of caps....

This season I didn't get caught in any rain, but I was ready if I did:



They survived everything from being banged around in vehicles to crashing through the brush, being dragged on the ground, going in and out of a saddle scabbard...and there was exactly zero worry about breaking them. Man, that was nice!

As for the comparisons with BC's, for now I'll forgive misguided comments by people who have never seen my caps in real life. Anybody who has can tell after about three seconds there is no comparison, on so many levels. Their function and durability speaks for themselves.

I would not have put a lifetime replacement warranty on these if they were not built so tough I don't expect any significant percentage of users to break them. I have a lot out there already, and still not one single broken cap.

The Leupold Alumina covers are very nice. If they made them for all scopes, I probably would not have felt the need to come up with these. But they don't. In fact, they don't even make them for some of the best Leupold scopes. That's fine, I'll be happy to:





There are some functional differences between the way mine and the aluminas operate with some pluses and minuses each way, I suspect different users will have different preferences between the two (assuming they have a scope for which aluminas are offered).
