Anybody own one? How clear is the glass? How does this scope compare to the glass in the Nikon Bolt XR scope? Thanks.

Yea, same price. I bought a Redfield a couple years ago for a deer rifle and am satisfied with it. If this revenge is as clear then I'll be more than satisfied especially with the $60 price tag.

I paid $100 about 4 years ago, before they were discontinued
The Redfield Revenge Crossbow Scope 2-7x34mm ABS Crossbow Reticle was discontinued. Now the Redfield Revenge Crossbow Scope 2-7x34mm ABD Crossbow Reticle is the scope that is available. The reticles are both described as the same.

I didn't see any difference in the descriptions of both scopes. They both said, " Accu-Ranger reticle allows the hunter to determine an accurate distance to the target by bracketing the target in the ranging brackets and then simply dialing in to the desired magnification."

I owned one and sold it. I got used to illuminated reticles which it did not have. I find the reticle clutter too distracting. The range finding feature is a little absurd.

Yea, I aint too crazy about the range finding thingy either but think I can get used to it being there. Atleast all that is above the crosshairs. I'm looking for clear glass with simple recticles (which it has below the range finder lines). Non Illuminated is what Im used to so no problems there. I am just hoping the glass in this scope is as clear as the Redfield scope on my deer rifle. If so then I'll be a happy camper at this price. And if I decide to sell it later on I cant loose too much.;)

All true...

I have two XB30 Pro scopes and a 530IR clone, so all have illuminated reticles. I have taken the batteries out of 2 of them so they won't be damaged by leaking and never bothered to put them back in. Unless you are hunting dark colored animals in low light here is no need for illumination in my opinion and I don't recall ever turning it on.
At the price, go for it. A lifetime warranty and decent glass would slightly outweigh a cluttered reticle for me and lack of illumination is not an issue...

I am not sure which I have then. I'll have to see if I still have the box, or was it a clam shell? I did not buy it for the range finder, but to replace the cheap on supplied with my CB

I remember going out one night 20 minutes after legal shooting hours were over and being able to shoot a 20 yard bulls eye on a target with a Leupold Crossbones scope which is about the equivalent of the Redfield scope. There was no moon up and I could not see the bulls eye on the target with my bare eyes. I believe that some of the have to have illumination stories are fudging on legal shooting hours.

All my current crossbow scopes are illuminated. I have never used illumination when shooting a deer using a crossbow. :p
Illumination only is needed for the first half and last half hours of the day. It can make the difference between getting the shot or not.
