Update of the ATX in the near future?

Hi all. Im thinking of splashing out on a ATX 85, but just wondered if there is any talk of Swarovski updating their current scopes. I understand the current model is first class, but would not like to regret holding off if a new model is on the way. many thanks.

I think if you hold off too long the price will go up. The only rumblings I've heard is something big=very expensive is on the way.

I wouldn't expect the ATX system to be updated anytime soon though an extender may be on the way.

Good luck with the purchase I think you have made a wise decision - it is a fine scope and you can always add a bigger/smaller objective in the future should you so wish.

Swarovski usually adjusts (raises) the price of whatever chosen models at the beginning of the year.

I think you are pretty safe. After a lot of research I purchased the stx 65 and the 95 lens as well. The 95 is huge and unless one wants to fork out for two lens the 85 is probably the sweet spot. In all my research I could not find anything to suggest a change for the TX line.
