[QUOTE=Jon A;162729]Yeah, the reticle disappearing on low power should be offset by being lit I would think (if using lit reticles is legal where you hunt). QUOTE]
I’ve owned this exact scope with the illuminated reticle. It's a waist of $100.00 and I sent it back for the non-illuminated version.
The light transmission on this scope is so good that by the time you can't make out your target/animal/critter due to low light you also won’t be able to make out your cross hairs. Illuminating the cross hairs wouldn't help. Believe I know and I've tried. The real fact about the illuminated cross hair on this IOR scope is it’s a waist of money. When you're in that lowest of light condition and turn the illumination on, even on the lowest setting you get light blow back in your eyes. Even if you could make out your target, the light blow back cancels it out.
It looks really cool in the pitch black but is a waist of $100.00. If you're legally spot lighting you still don't need an illuminated reticle because your spot light will provide plenty of light to see your reticle.
It’s a great scope, but it’s really a worthless feature.
Agree this scope should have the reticle in the second focal plane. It's only a 10X so having the reticle in the first focal plane is really not needed.
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
