Considering that this is the cheapest spiting scope with a reticle I could find on the interned I am quite happy with this. I'm sure that a more expensive one could be a lot better, as this one has room for improvement, but frankly I like to test my abilities on the cheep stuff before I invest in more expensive equipment. Id rather school someone with cheep, basic, old and/or well used equipment that have expensive, shiny, new stuff and not know how to use it (I see this a ton on the range...seriously tons). Practice and knowledge beet money 9 times out of 10 when skill is involved.

My biggest gripe is that the reticle is on the second focal plane so the hash marks are only accurate at max zoom 33x. Optical clarity is okay considering the price. You will defiantly find it a useful tool but if you are used to expensive glass you might find this a bit harder to look through. The focus works but is a bit sensitive and can be hard to make minor adjustments to get it in the best possible focus.

The tripod is sturdy metal construction and that combined with the case is a real plus to me. Packs away nicely and deploys reliably.
Overall the scope seems to be pretty durable and could take a few bags or drops (haven't this tested yet).

If your looking for your first tactical spotting scope, give this a long look. If you looking for a high quality professional optic I recommend you keep looking as you will likely need to upgrade down the road.

Pros:
-Compact, somewhat durable, the only spotting scope with a mil-dot reticle that doesn't cost a fortune.

Cons:
-Awful reticle design. It rotates with the eyepiece. After some use you will notice the mil-cross reticle is tilted 45 degrees or more and you have to spend some time with it often to get it sort-of centered again.

-The reticle itself looks like it was spray painted on using a stencil. Check my attached image, it's the worst reticle I have ever seen. Has nobody else mentioned this yet?

-The glass quality is poor, but I can still spot vapor trails to 800 yards or so.

Not recommended unless you're very desperate for an inexpensive spotting scope that has a mil-cross reticle. I would suggest spending your money on something without a reticle and better glass, or saving up for something from a better company that can actually do reticles correctly. I've hassled with this thing for a year and a half now and wish I went with something different. It's only saving grace is that it technically hasn't broken on me yet.

For the price you can't beat it. Good out to 500 yards. Beyond that the optics kind of fail and become blurry.

1st one I ordered had a reticle rotated clockwise 30° and the replacement is counterclockwise 15°. Very hard to focus due to how tight the knob is.

VERY good spotting scope for the $. MilDot.

It isnt a leupold, but I didn't expect that.

It's the only low priced spotting scope with a mil reticle on the market. That because said: it only reads in full mils and the reticle is second focal plane, so it's only accurate on full power. I have yet to really confirm that the reticle is true to scale. If you can afford more money for better quantity, then that is my recommendation.

When I turned the zoom, the reticle would rotate. I didn't like that at all. Also there is no way to adjust the angle of the eyepiece, the tripod mount is fixed to the optic frame.
