Re: swarovski torture tests (videos)

i have a few swarovski's. glass is amazing, tracking is just as good as my nightforce, the scope is light and obviously durable. they are expensive but thats the only downside i can find to them

    why would you take a 2000 dollar scope and try and break it?

    I own a swaro and love it. Great glass. But in no way is anywhere near as tough as
    my USO's. When I bought my first one John Senior said , don't use it for a baseball
    bat, but I'll warranty it if you do. Watch their torture test throwing scopes off a 20 foot
    high deck onto a rocky steep hill. Or driving a pickup wheel up on the tube with it blocked
    only at the ends. The weight penalty for a thicker tube is certainly a fact but it isn't as
    much as you might think.

    i think they are just showing you that if you book a 6 thousand dollar hunt and drop your rifle with a swaro on it your hunt is not ruined. or if you drop it in a creek your hunts not ruined. not that you would do it on intentinally but accendents happen. the thing i like about my swarovskis are they are light as a feather and tough enough to take whatever i may do on accident.
