Gotta love the big brown truck, it's like Santa in disguise. Will be waiting to hear how you like your marvel, lol.

Mke, if you see a difference I'll reserve your strings for the rest of my life! LOL! Let us know how you like it. I have one on my Vixen and it just isn't good enough when the sun goes down and its magic hour. On the other hand many people like the different yardage lines.

I hate saying it but I just donno, I keep on switching. All I can tell you is that I like rifle scopes because the better ones give me more light. Currently I have a B&L 1.5 X 6 X 36 Elite 4200 which gives me lots of light at magic hour (the last half an hour after sunset). I am thinking about using one of my Nikon 30mm scopes because it might give me more light. Sorry Roger but I have not found the perfect scope. I know one thing, there isn't one "crossbow" scope that cuts the mustard at magic hour! When I find it I will let you know for sure.

you could try one of the starlight or infrared rifle scopes from midway. Can hunt right till the last second befor quiting time with them. Lee

I used it the other night and thought that it did well in the low light. Are you sure you are not hunting just a tad to late?

Ok young buck! LOL!! Geeeze you're bad! Nope, I often get stuck in a small opening in the woods and when the sun goes down it gets way to dark for anything but the brightest scope. Its even worse when there's cloud cover. Ok Squirrel bite Jason's ankles!

Lee, they are illegal here in Ontario, the use or even possession of them in the field leads to a big fat ticket. Second best thing is the Halo. With both eyes open anyone you can see lots even in the last few minutes.

Dnk: Sounds like you need that 10 pt w/ red or green dots on the reticules. Thats what I'd have if the V-zones weren't available. To be honest, when you have a pie tin size kill zone, they are close enough no matter the bow or speed. I just like the pin point no hold [generally] of the v-zone, but I range every shot, if you know what I mean, lol.
