Seriously! Super Sniper

Does anybody have or know someone that has a SS 10x42 HD? Needing some feedback on this particular scope.

I don't own one, but have played with one. My opinion is that they are well worth the money. Makes it hard in my mind to justify spending $600 on a different scope. After all how often do you need 3 or 4 power. The only time I use the bottom end of my scope is in dense forest.

Re: Seriously! Super Sniper

Jon Yes i think i did see that vid. Just wanted to hear from somone that has looked through one. Steve I agree with you on the variable X. Am set on the 10X myself. Hoping the glass was considerably better than the previous models. Thanks guys. Anybody else?

Re: Seriously! Super Sniper

The one I played with I thought the optics were good. Not great, but better than many others. Did not get to try in low light, but was reasonably clear. Definitely hunt able. I know there has been discussions about the SS in the past, but hope some of those that have used them a lot will chime in. A friend of mine had the one that I tried. He sold it because of the bulkiness, not because of functionality.

I had one for a short time till the Vortex PST was announced.
I did not think it was bulky.
I liked the size and weight of this scope.
Good internals, glass and simple design also make this scope gtg.

Re: Seriously! Super Sniper

I have experience with all 3 SS scopes. 10X, 16X , 20X..........My opinion is they are excellent scopes no matter what the cost comparisons are. Absolute perfect tracking, and great optics. I did a side by side comparison to a nightforce scope with my 16x(NF set to 16X) at dusk and found that even with the lighted reticle in the NF, i could have taken shots with the SS for at least a half hr after i could have with the NF. People who shoot BR only might not like the thickness of the crosshairs, but mine are used on hunting rifles and i think there are the best buy in the scope market today. AJ
