If they are so wonderful at cutting down flare why don't they use them on any camera?
They're a supposed anti reflection device so people can't see the reflection off a scope. It's not meant for cutting down flare in a scope although that might be a by product. Drill a 40mm hole in your scope cap and it will probably do the same.
Just how heavy are the s&b shades????
Quite heavy rob , after all they are made of gold sprayed silver
the inside of my sunshade is matt silver . as for the depth of field . i tried it out at 55 yards and it repeated that on 50 mag in VERY bright conditions . when one of the lads saw grandad with his new 60 mag March . he asked if it was a HAWKE . urrggg cannot be having that rob ??? HOLLY
