Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased this spotting scope back in 2008 and have had a good amount of time behind the lens. I purchased this spotting scope based on my budget at the time and the reviews that I read on Amazon.com. After two years of use, I can finally add some constructive feedback about this product.
Pros: Comes with a nice carrying case Included tripod is a very handy accessory Build quality is very nice at this price point Clarity of the glass is decent at 100 yards Large magnification with a very nice fine tune control knob
Cons: There is no height adjustment to the tripod - but that isn't to be expected at this price point Front lens cap does not stay on and falls off easily during transport Eye-relief - this is my biggest problem with the spotting scope. You REALLY have to get in very close to get a good image. This issue is greatly enhanced when you're using the higher magifications. Additionally, I would not recommend...
Usually Barska makes some nice scopes, especially for the price. This thing was a piece of crap. Clarity was sub par and the eye relief was TERRIBLE. Incredibly hard to line your eye up so you could see through it properly and even more difficult to steady yourself so you could continue to look through it. I work in sporting goods shop and have used hundreds of scopes over the years, mounted them, ect. This was one of the worse, it reminded me of the cheap scopes you get on BB guns. Spend a little extra money and get something else. Lastly, the light loss at full power was impressive. In a Highly lit retail store, it looked like someone turned off half the lights. not very good.
Had high hopes for this considering the reviews. I ended up seeing reviews from a few other sites, Cabella's specifically had very poor reviews for this same scope.
I used this thing twice at the range and the back eye piece came off. Was never rough with this and was always in the case when not being used. I tried to put it back together and it still "functions" but now there is dust spots inside the glass and it wont screw all the way in like normal. I could take it in for warranty/repair but Barska charges 20-25 I believe to cover shipping and other costs. Not worth it.
I guess I got what I paid for.
