I have purchased the Hawke Mod #12-221 which is XB1 1.5-5X32 and love it. Easy to sight in,can be used with red,green light or no light. The speed ring is accurate, scope works good in low light only thing bad scope is made in china,but nicely made. Best price is Wayvern Creation
The Sierra3 from Sig is my suggestion. It sets a whole new standard for xbow scopes and offers smart scope technology at a very affordable price point. You won't have the objective lens illumination exposure all of your suggested scopes have and you would pickup full magnification function vs beinf locked down for speed compensation and you can setup as many or few reticles as you care to at yardages of your choice through the application.
You can find the 3.5-10X42 for about $350 on eBay and Optics Planet and from other distributors.
And the icing on the Sig cake is BDX auto ranging capability.
This is a Sig video for the rifle application but it works the same for crossbows and they have a specific crossbow application.
I love my Hawke XB1 SR scopes. I have had the TactZone, TP Rangemaster, Tact-100 and the Ravin scopes. I still like the Hawke XB1 over the rest. Also it’s the clearest and when lit, there’s no halo effect. Good luck!
I like the Hawke XB30 Pro and owned two of them. Great design but not very rugged as I broke both of them - Hawke replaced one and repaired the other. Also owned and really like the Trophy Ridge Speedcomp XV530IR (really just a Hawke clone). The TR worked just as well, I like the reticle better and it hasn’t broken yet.
I am shooting with a Revenge from Redfield and the Nikon Bolt XR. Neither are illuminated but both are clear and holds light past legal shooting hours. Shooting any later than this for me cases problems (my eyes aint that good anymore). Ive been well pleased shooting out to 45 yards with both.
when I got my Centerpoint 415 I knew replacing the scope would be the first thing to do.....I wanted a speed rated scope, I decided on a Hawke 12221 I was set to buy it for $179, then found a local hunter to me with a brand new one, still in the box, never used and he asked for $100 I jumped on it, and glad I did.....I like it alot
Just assembled my new CenterPoint 370 Specialist XL and here's my findings:
First test at 20 yards using field points (came with the unit) into a discharge bag.
Lubed the rail and string with the rail lube that came with the unit.
Still waiting on string wax to arrive by courier and I could not...
Here are my initial impressions on the new offering from Vortex.
Packaging is outstanding! Packing reflects a high end scope purchase!
Comes with some nice extras. Lens cloth. Flip up covers. Neoprene scope cover. And scope rings.
Mounted on my DS 400. Scope rings in the kit were too high for...
This is an initial review (impressions) of my PSE Fang LT. I had thought to wait until I’ve shot a few arrows down range, but decided to share my initial thoughts while they are very fresh – less than an hour ago. I can add to this as I gain experience with it.
First the seller… American...
I looked thru the Ghost Blind website and ordered a back pack for my now shorter GhostBlind Predator.
It works on my modified blind. It holds it solid and offers enough storage for a day in the woods. It is intended for the Runner model. This is the shorter version. Still a bunch of blind above...
