This 8.25-inch aluminum scope features a variable speed and arrow drop-compensation setting for crossbows that shoot between 275 and 425 FPS, and requires no adjustment for distance. Three duplex crosshairs and five dots calibrated for 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 yards (fourth and fifth dots are free standing, just below the 40-yard crosshair) are available with a non-illuminated black dot or one of two rheostatcontrolled, illuminated colored dots (red or green). An etched glass reticle and fully multi-coated 1.5 to 5x optics reduce the loss of light transmission, while a 30mm tube heightens light-gathering and durability.
Got this scope as an upgrade for the RDX 400. I chose this scope over the hawk xb30. Because it’s shorter and lighter, and there is less going on in the reticle. Only 3 lines and then 2 dots below the lines. Not a fan of lines to 100 yards and windage points the hawk has, to much going on when your in the stand trying to get a shot at a deer that you may only have a second or 2 before he is out of your shooting lane. This scope is just right with the amount of aiming points for hunting related uses. Don’t have any issues seeing the light from the front of scope, so that issue must have been fixed. Scope seams to be well made and solid. Only bad thing about these adjustable scopes is that when your shooting at the upper level of FPS for the scope, then you have a narrower field of view. To me it’s worth the trade of to have a scope calibrated to your bow.
Extremely easy to Sight in, just follow the instructions as printed. In 3 shots you are in the money. Prior to shooting my Tenpoint Venom I called the techs at Tenpoint for a few tips and let them know I was shooting a Venom Crossbow with Pro Elites and he said it will be right on set at 353 FPS. He was right.
I have this scope ion both my Tenpoint crossbows and it is very easy to sight in for 20 - 60 yard shots. I have used this scope for two seasons so far and feel confident that I can take shots up to 50 yards. Great in low light coditions especially with the lighted reticles.
This scope came with my Nitro X and made sighting in my new bow a breeze! Start with the speed setting dial set to your bow's advertised speed and zero at 20 yards using windage and elevation knobs. Then, fine tune at 40 yards using only the speed setting dial and you're good to go from 20 to 60 yards.
The illuminated dots feature seems like it could be a good thing in low-light hunting conditions, and provides options for setting the light intensity and either red or green colors. One small knock - the illumination dial is a bit stiff to turn.
