Yeah Brent, it's good to know the product really does have potential to perform this well. I would think it could serve a large number of people on this board very well. Not everybody needs to range a deer at 2000+. And at 1/3 the price of a Leica Geovid and about 1/8th the price of the bottom of the line Vector, it really opens the door to many who simply can't spend that much money on a hunting toy. But it does seem they have some quality control issues. So buying one may be a gamble but given how my current one works the reward of getting a good one might be worth it for some people.
I'll ask them what was wrong with my old one but I won't hold my breath for an accurate answer.
Marlow, I got mine from www.binoculars.com
for about $620. Come to think of it, if one is considering buying one of these things I think I've come up with a strategy:
If I remember correctly, they have a 30 days, no questions asked, satisfaction guaranteed or your money back return policy. (But double check that before you take my word for it!!!)
So, I would wait to order until I knew I'd be able to really put the thing through the ringer, testing it thoroughly as soon as it came. If it doesn't work worth a damn, send it back within 30 days and get your money back.
That sounds like a plan to me! But just remember everybody, how much you paid for this advice! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
