One would think quite a few thousand FT shooters...but it turns out to be only an average 1600- 2200 UK FT shooters , due to the 60 or 70 clubs applying for individual cards, in any given year....

I see, I take it your not an Ft comp shooter yourself? The numer of "serious" ft shooters and by that I mean shooters who compete at Gp level on a regular basis is very small, 100 -200. Of those, again only a small % say around 20 - 40 would be looking to spend "silly" money on another S&B type thingy.
There are lots more Ft shooters in the country mainly doing regional level where perhaps the equipment level is much lower than at gp. Certainly so in wafta region.

Personally, I think the only door open to a new Ft scope is a 10-50 at around 400. Wonder when that will turn up?
Be great when it does as I will recomend all our new shooters look at the new falcon before the nikko etc.
