Re: Rain X on a scope?

A cheap scope would not have the same coatings as an expensive scope, therefore not much to learn IMHO

Re: Rain X on a scope?

Should work the same as it does on you truck's windshield provided that you can keep the rifle going at least 50 mph. :>)

I don't believe that RainX was designed for stationary glass.

Nor was it intended for lenses with optical coatings

This is what Leoupld said about it...

"Rick, it will help at the beginning but I do not recommend using Rain X, my suggestion is trying a substance called Kleer-Vu they can be reached at 208-524-4949"

Kleer Vu Anti-Fog Cleaner is the web address.

I am going to try some and see if it works for scopes and my eye glasses.

Re: Rain X on a scope?

Was talking with Arnold at US Optics (directs production, QC and some R&D) today about another matter and I brought this up and he got a chuckle out of it. On the lower line optics it may not make a difference at first but eventually it will degrade performance.

This is the best way to clean your optics IMHO-- watch and learn:
