What can you tell me about Super Sniper Scopes?

I bought me a new scope today. I have three rifles that I do not have scopes on and found a decent deal on a Ziess Conquest last night online. I went to buy it today and the salesman tried to sell me a Super Sniper instead. I did look through the Super Sniper scope and it was real clear but I just do not know enough about them to spend $600+ for one.

So my question is has anyone ever used one and if so what do you think of them? Are they good quality scopes?

Thanks,

If it is fixed power Super Sniper like a 10x they should be about a $300 scopes.

I’m not a fan of them and I have used them in the past. For a $300 scope they are a good buy but not a scope that is well made. Their glass is OK and the turrets are mushy. I would save the money and get a better scope.

My friend lent me one of the 10X super snipers until I could afford one. I really liked it. I think they are mentioned in Ian's corner in an article about low priced long range scopes. I would like to try out there new variable power model.

There are 10x, 16x, and 20x versions that are the lower level SS, then there is a new HD model with very good glass that is much more expensive, plus a 3-9 model with HD glass. They all track well and in general have pretty good reviews. Snipershide has lots more info on the new HD models, they beat up on the Mark 4 in clarity and such, for less $$$.

I cannot say anything about the image on a SS HD.

I will take reliability over a slightly better or even a 100% better image quality. As long as I can ID the target and the scope will track precisely. I what to have a rifle scope on my rifle not a rifle scope that will turn into a spotting scope.

The turret adjustments can be de-greased, and then become much more crisp.. Not bad at all for $300 or so...

I've seen some mighty fine scores, NRA High-Master level, shot with Super Sniper scopes.

Great scopes for the $$, they will take a serious beating and track perfectly every time so not much else to say other than the glass is good too. I had the 10x a couple years back and wished I would have kept it. I may try the new 3-9x variable for $600.00. I need something to throw on the 700 I use for closer to mid-range encounters with bear/deer in PA.
