Personally cant use them having had a couple, last one chose best one from 9 in a line, they differ tremendously. Dont like the dire build quality or lack of but thats why they are cheap.
Everything has its service life and everything wears out in the end, especially these sort of instruments with very fine mechinisms when we use them very hard adjusting them for every shot. As for build quality yes it could be better, but a lot of things can always be made better. Problem is with that is build something like a Swiss watch and eventually Swiss watch prices have to be charged! Yes there is a place in our world for 2500 superscopes but not everyone is willing or able to spend that, instead looking to pay say 500-600 for an instrument of serviceable quality and accuracy. Yes it wont be perfect (but in all honesty isnt bad) but it is a lot better than pricing a LOT of people out of the sport.

p.s. Hopefuly yes the T50 when it happens will be better and I await its arrival with interest.
