I treated my aging eye today and bought a Swarovski SLC. It will be here sometimes next week. Does anyone here uses one? I like to hear your opinion.Thanks,DF

I have the 10X42 and love it. I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Great optics!! I have the 10x42SLC, 15X56SLC, 10X42EL and the ATS 20-60X65. Absolutely love my Swaro's! You will too.

Thanks DS, How do you like your spotter. That will be my next purchase. I'll probably get the ATS 80 though.

Oh I love the spotter. I went with the 65 because I do a lot of backpack hunts. Just a note though, did a side by side test with my 65 and my buddy's 80. Set both scopes up on tripods and took turns looking threw them one evening to see the difference in light gathering. Needless to say my buddy was upset he bought the larger and more expensive spotter after our testing was done. There was little to no difference in the brightness of the 80 during legal hunting hours and later.

Glad to hear that from somebody who actually did a side by side comparison. How about the CTS model? Have you look at them? Looks perfect for backpacking hunt.

I at one time had the CTC but like the ATS better. I've never used the CTS.
