That's it Charlie..... Psychological warfare already.....
We all want the best results from the time we have available to put in ( practice etc etc )
We also want the best kit we can afford
However, personal choice always comes in.
Some buy on looks,some on the "feel" others on a million different emotions going on in their head.
Nearly everything we use is adapted from a product designed for another sport.so we don't have perfect tools for the job.
If ( and I accept s&b screwed it up ) someone put the r&d into a super scope for a niche market and it was perfect the cost would reflect this. so only the cash rich would buy it.
We are all seeking an edge and confidence can be bought, scores increased and then broken by a bad result blaming whatever.
I never think we will have a perfect scope, so will have to make do with what I can
