Looks like you have your answer Alexis ..... Silver it is ......

Di + ED would be too radical of a market positioning paradigm shift @ circa ~$150 - well, at least for this year anyway ...... next year - ah, well, that's something else again ......

The "alloy" part of the silver "alloy", is still a bit puzzling - but hey, you can't have everything!

For some folks, saying 'alloy' is the same as saying 'metal'. Over here in the UK 'alloy' means any kind of aluminium to most people.

Thanks for the follow-up on the Legend HD. Bushnell has often been the first to use new technologies at low price points, so I though this might be another case where they had done that. Guess not!

For the record, the name aluminum predates aluminium slightly, both have been in usage for a long time, and the history of dominant usage has been complex.

Also for the record, the preferred mispronunciation of nuclear is "new-cue-lar".

They probably don't use it intentionally, otherwise it would be almost the same as the more expensive elite.
