I have sold my soul !

Recommended Posts

To the Swarovski devil !

 

Having spent the last 4 months looking through spotters and researching i finally made my mind up and purchased the ATX with the 65mm objective. The quality and clarity of the image across the range is stunning !

The scope was purchased from a great little camera shop in Harrogate called Bass and Bligh ( great customer service )

The tripod being a manfrotto 190CXPRO4. The only item left to sort will be a head to replace the basic one fitted.

Another big tick in the box was the compact size once broken down. They both fit nicely into an old bino case for the top compartment of the Eberlestock. Size comparison against a couple of AR magazines.

 

Overall a very, very happy man !

I went and bought the same tripod with the atx 95 as all I will use it for is more static spotting. These have to be the best spotting scopes on the market at the minute. The glass in these are second to none I my opinion. Congratulations on a great purchase and the best of luck with it.

Just a thought as I used the same tripod and now it gets confined to camera work . I found that I needed a smaller tripod that would get low to the ground for spotting prone next to the rifle without the legs getting in the way and went with the Velbon ultra mini maxi which is so small but sturdy and is smaller than the scope . I changed the head and quick release to Manfrotto so the scope could used on both tripods with little messing .

The ideal Manfrotto head for your set up is the MN-128 RC2.

Discontinued now but you might be lucky and find one out there, the replacement is a 700 RC2.

 

The 701 and 702 are much bigger and will spoil the overall size of the outfit.

Tell me about it - I've owned three of their rifle scopes (still have two), plus 8x56 & 8x32 binos.
