I expect that they will be weaver super slam-ish, but won't know for sure until Wednesday. If they are anything close to the Weaver or Brunton Epoch 8.5x I will be very, very, pleased.

EO Denali

Chuck,

I saw one of your posts a while back about the denali. Is it safe to assume the one you've had good experience with is the updated model? When read your first comments on the denali, I...

I ended up going with the 8x32 Mojave over the Sightron. The fact that it was slightly brighter, sharper, had a better focus mechanism, & better ergonomics did it for me though I will say the view...

I would really like to hear what you think of the Midas. I'm thinking if its similar to my Carson ED but with a larger FOV, it could be at the top of the heap at this price point.

Thank you for the suggestions. I did own a Terra for a while but never gave it a fare shake. For $269, that one should earn consideration.

I've owned both the prostaff 7 & Excursion HD and I would take the prostaff over the Excursion.
