After quickly setting up the falcon on the Njr saturday and zeroing I had the opertunity for a days shooting yesterday in the conditions and settings i wanted, Thanks to Mike Williams and Nelson Ftc.
Started the day shooting in woods. The thin crosshair / dot reticule was ok in the woods, did not loose it once but the lack of windage dots makes giving wind a trickier job.
What was apparent was when the grey clouds came over and the light dropped, the difference in clarity between the falcon and luep is miles! Well, at least £600.
I was rangfinding at targets that were dull, almost with a grey mist over them (same as i have seen in cheaper scopes in good light, or some big nikko's come to that
!) and although i did not have the leup there to compare side by side, i just knew from experience that the luep would have given a much brighter target. Saying that, I dont think the falcom miss ranged any targets in the wood. I missed for wind, but not for height.
Off to Nelson then in the afternoon for a session on the covered plinking range. Again, rangefinding spot on. However, it takes more work to rangefinder unlike the mk4 which snaps in /out. Doz had a quick look through the T35 and seemed impressed, particually when i told him it only only cost £200.
Conclusion. Great scope for the money, rangefindes very well but slower than the luep. Great for the open field / non timed comps that we tend to have in wafta, but for the timed gp series / wood shoots i think the mk 4 will be the scope of choice.
Now to get another Njr!
