Like I said in my previous post " I'm 55 and where glasses" my vision isn't what it use to be. This growing old stuff sucks !

Also the new version of the RapidZ reticle is far less "busy" and the target turrets are shorter. Overall I think it's a home run for this magnification range.

Maybe they took the good ones to the SHOT show .

It's like buying a new golf driver. I go to demo days and the new clubs fly better than my old one. I get one, no not the demo I tried out, and it ends up no better than the clubs I already own? Scopes maybe the same deal, who knows.

Do you have any astigmatism in the eye you use for aiming? Or is the correction only diopter (myopia)?

Yes I have astigmatism along with being near sighted ! Is that part of the problem ?
