      What a great deal! I can read the fine print on a sign at a measured 161 yards. I can not wait to take them hunting, lite weight, easy to handle, they fit perfectly in my pack. A great value!

      I bought this to have a cheap spotting scope for when I go shooting. Cheap is what I got. After using quality products like Leupold and Steiner this optic seems like total junk and I would strongly urge anyone to save a little more money and buy something of quality. The cheap factor is not worth it here.

                  This scope is OK if you want a lightweight scope under a price point but if you spend a bit more you'll get a scope you may be happier with.

                    It is surprisingly clear and it fits in a large coat pocket quite handily. I get a closer look at what I'm hunting after use of my binocular.
