Just wondering how to tell the difference - if any - between the early models versus the World Class version made today? Thanks.
You dont comprehend well timmy, worl class was never stated by anyone buy YOU!
YHE HAVE NEVER BEEN WORLD CLASS, BUT LIKE TENPOINT, AND SCORPYD IN COMPOUNDS, OR EXCALIBUR IN RECURVES, WHEN OTHER COMPANIES INTRODUCE COMPATIBLE MODELS, THEY UPGRADE TO STAY THE BEST CHOICE IN THE CROSSBOW ONLY SCOPE FIELD!
wildcatter109;1111051679 said:I have owned every scope you have mentioned, On my current bows I have 2 Hawke XB-30 Pro SR, and one Evo-X. For over 6 years the Hawke XB-30 Pro has been flawless and my choice of scope. I shoot year round 1000's of shots from my bows and they have been flawlessm and never lost their zero. Last year I got the Evo-X and can now say It is my favorite.
I somehow bent this XB-30 Pro hanging in my garage, must have banged something into it pretty hard without knowing it. In the picture one can see the eye piece bent downward, which had to be hit fairly hard.

This was the shot taken to see how far off the scope was affected,,, 30 yards, right where it was the 1/2" right could have been me but the bow had not been shot for a couple months, and had been sighted in over a year before, but Hawke replaced it anyways, with no questions asked!

I have had to have $1200.00 Leupold Competition Series scopes replaced for not holding a zero before, so remember, any scope brand can have issues, but for over 6 years, the Hawke XB-30 Pro has proven to be reliable for the 5 or 6 I have owned, even after I obviously abused one severely! It and the Evo-X are the only two Crossbow scopes I will have my crossbows that are available to this date! Both are well proven.
I really don't care for the sub par glass in the other Hawke crossbow scopes, like the cheaper XB-1, or the XB-30 Pro compact, so don't know if they hold up as well, but cheaper scopes mean cheaper optics and not near as bright in low light, common sense---- but which Hawke scope do you have????
+1Well I have talked with the USA rep as I've said, and just like Excalibur, they could care less who bought it, when they bought it, or how it happened, if there's an issue with it they'll replace it, and if it is an older model, the only problem you'll have is you will have to suffer with the latest version which will be upgraded. Kind of nice to deal with a company, that makes no bones over why it didn't hold up. But I'm sure some will find a problem with that as well!
