Thanks a lot Neil for sharing your observations.
As we both found the same problem with the S&B FT2 scope (vague range finding above 45 meters) this indicates there is a serious problem. And not a single item or prototype issue. Maestro finds the same which makes it three.
And I find it damn foolish of S&B to put the scope on the market like this and advertise it like they do. It will do their reputation in the FT scene no good. Luckily we have March these days to fill the top end segment in FT scopes.
I'm curious about the article in Shooting Sports on this scope. Anyone care to share a copy with me?
