Re: Hunting Scope Recomendations
I,ve used all three scopes so I,ll tell you whatI liked and didnt about each one. I use to be a Leupold man , had numerous Leupold scopes. My main complaint is the parallax adjustment knobs were always coming loose. The optics are ok and the scopes are good. Swarovski scopes of which I,ve owned two are good but I dont like the location of the parallax adjustment ( front of scope). To much movement involved in adjusting parallax, and it has a tendency to get grit in the adjustment ring and becomes unsmooth to operate. Excellent glass and good quality scope.I now own Conquests and Diavaris. I have no complaints on either scope, both have quality optics, I prefer side adjust parallax which both have. I think for the money the Conquest is a great scope. if you can afford the Diavari, I like it better and its very well made both have lifetime warranties. I,ve also used Nightforce, they,re built like a tank, optics are in my opinion not as clear as Swarovski or Zeiss. Suffice it to say Im a Zeiss man. Keep in mind this is only an opinion from a fellow member/shooter, and I,m sure others will share their likes and dislikes as well. hope this helps. Scott N. in Ariz.
