Re: Riflescopes for 1000 yd competition

Randy,
I thought the bigeyes could be put together with angled eyepieces?

Are the bigeyes "width" adjustable for different eye spacing like any other bino?

Re: Riflescopes for 1000 yd competition

Brent, angled is out of the question for BigEyz. I won't say impossible if I were to concede that it is possible to dribble a football! IF you are talking about a 45 degree which angled normally are, I will say impossible.

The interpupillary distance range depends on the units you are using and some allow a very narrow spread for this distance. You won't know till you try them. I have tried many that would not work if you want to see if I have tried them. (for instance New Leicas and Zeiss will not work at all).

Jerry Phillips had several sets of big eyes with angeled eyepieces at Nationals last year and they worked well. At least one of them was the small back pack sets. The brackets are adjustable for individual eye width also.

DanTac,

I thought the Meopta 70's did not have a straight version that would be required for bigeyes. Only the 75's is what I was told. What would you compare the quality to in other manufacturers?

Thanx
