    I just picked one up from amazon...$54.00 delivered. A pretty nice scope. I much prefer the reticle with multiple crosshairs to the triangles on the Excalibur scope that came with my Axiom.

    Are these Hawkes scopes really that good for $40-$50. The one that came with my TP Turbo XLT II is a 3x Pro-View 2. It sells for $189. It has great eye relief clear as can be, and excellent in low light.Is there something I'm missing here? Please fill me in.

    well Bobby that price point was on Amazon. the black one was $79.99 same scope. mine was $45 free two day shipping. compared to the CROSS 4x32 that came with the Ghost 350, I like it. clearer and I prefer the crosshairs.

    I have a mind set and wont put a $300 scope on a $400 bow. both of my ARs have Tasco World Class 3x9 50mm and the are fantastic and were only $50 or so dollars on Amazon.

    I try not to be an equipment snob with the things I drive or use. to me inanimate objects are just tools. if they function for my function they are good enough.

    anyhow that is how I roll...

    No I was just wondering. The scope I have came with the package. Just wondering if the Hawkes were much better for less money, in case I buy another xbow and it doesn't have a scope.

    I just put mine on and haven't hunted with it yet. The scope is very clear and bright...some aberration at the edge of the field of view...finish is first rate, the adjustments are crisp and easy to use without tools. I like it. Only time will tell how weatherproof and durable it is.
    The sale on amazon was terrific. Usually you see it for sale at $109-129 + shipping. I should point out that it is very compact...at least a couple of inches shorter than the Excalibur. The eye relief is also longer..the ocular lens is mounted some 2" further forward than the OE scope. So far I like it. I would have preferred a black scope but wasn't willing to pay $30 more for it.

    bobbyd1947-- I would at least look at the Hawke scopes before I purchased others. It seems like a heck of a scope for the money.

    yeah maybe I got a bit winded... :D it's a good scope for the money for sure. they sell or make (not sure which) the 3 dot red dot that Barnett sells as their brand...

    another alternate if I was going to get HHA Optimizer or whatever its called would be a Bushnell Banner, rave reviews 1-4 x 32mm nice compact rifle scope under $100 but only one aim point...

    I have the MAP and love it the glass is clear and light gathering is exceptional. I had a SR I figured out I'm not fond of the circles but it's a nice piece of glass, if you are in to the circles. But that's just me I like the thin cross hairs. I am saving up for a XB1 with the crossbow SR reticle I like the idea it can be adjusted to match the speed of the crossbow and I like the + cross hairs.
