Oscar – Talos BTR 4-14X44 Rifle Scope

Oscar Indreland from GA – Talos BTR 4-14X44 Rifle Scope…Quick Review:
Love it. Glass is impressively clear and the reticle is amazing. This is an excellent optic. I’m not even going to make a quantifying statement to go with it. Regardless of price this is a fine optic. Going to put 2 more on order!



FrankD (of Birdforum.net) Pre-VIEW of Cronus 20-60X86 Spotting Scope

FrankD (of Birdforum.net) Pre-REVIEW of Cronus 20-60X86 Spotting Scope:
This post isn’t meant as a full review as I only received a review unit of this scope yesterday. However, I was so impressed with this scope that I felt the need to begin the discussion on it. I only have a few comments for now and some pics to share but I thought it worthy of discussion.
For one, the quality level on all of the mechanics are excellent. Butter smooth eyecups, focusing knobs and zoom adjustment. No play, not too hard and not too fast. Perfect in my opinion.
Optical quality is absolutely excellent. I phonescoped some pics with the scope at 20x and 60x. These are completely unedited…vignetting left in the image. Probably not the best test photos as I was photographing Snow Geese approximately 150 yards away..and over a road, so heat shimmer plays a part. Still, the images turned out pretty well (phonescoped with the Iphone 6S and Phoneskope Universal adapter.)

I have a feeling three characteristics are going to be points of discussion, the prism design/housing, the focusing knobs and the eyepiece (bayonet style btw).

More to come!
