    Looking for pro's or cons for either. Price difference is $50 Canadian.

    I was thinking TBR would be best but Leica's are very well known and offer no TBR feature.

    What do you think. I need to decide in 10 hours.

    If you shoot in very uneven terrain then it is a very good feature.

    If it is flat then you don't really need it.

    For bow hunting it works great because of the angle that tree stand hunting can present.

    Well I did it. I bought the non TBR. Don't plan on shooting steep steep angles and at minor angles it really makes no difference.

    Is it just me though, I found the Leupold RX 1000 to have much sharper glass compared to a Leica crf 1200 (I never did adjust the focus ring, but that would be the case?)
