Spotting Scope

Postby jloader » 29 Aug 2016 08

I'm looking for a spotting scope for 50-100 yds targets.
Do you guys have any suggestions for a good model under $100? Or am I out of my mind in that budget?
I've already wasted some money on purchase on A-zon based on their reviews.
Thanks.

At that range try binoculars. You can use them for other things too.

I agree about the binocs.
If you must have a spotting scope because it looks cool on the bench, the look at Barska. I got one for $0
thru credit card rewards. It's OK for up to 100 yds. Check Dicks and other retailers where you can play with either instead of going blindly at A-zon
If all else fails--look for the obvious

I have.......had a Tasco because I'm not sure where it is at the moment..... It was very good and I think that model is still right at $100 . It was clear and bright 45x but I can't remember now if that was the top or the start. I can tell you it wasn't Leopold but it was good .

I have one but it wasn't worth the $120 I paid for it. So I'll be interested in following this thread so see if there is one out there that doesn't cost fortune.
An ignorant person is one who doesn't know what you have just found out.

When setting a job up for myself it must be Idiot Proof as well, as I am a bigger idiot than most people I know, and I prove it to myself everyday.

I use a scope that I acquired in a trade. I think it zooms to 24X. I like it better than a spotting scope because of the eye relief with my glasses. I mounted it on my cheapy spotting scope mount.
