I used one for a almost 2 seasons shooting HFT. Really liked it and did ok. Tried a connect after and liked the lack of eye relief which gave me a repeat head position. Then bought a gun with a sightron and am using that. It's 4 times the price but not miles ahead, just better quality glass.
Some top shots in HFT use 10x44 vipers very successfully but with all things optical it has to suit your eyes. Also you can get some variation in them, as in look through 5 and they may all differ a small amount. Fantastic after sales from MTC, and a brilliant ret. Highly recommend for HFT IMHO.
Second hand usually around the £110 mark give or take.
MAD for it.
