I very much agree that I don't think rangefinding is such a significant aspect of the sport certainly compared to wind estimation and good discipline technique but in fairness without putting words in Berty's mouth his post implies he has bought his scope to improve his rangefinding. FT is very much a sport for people that love their kit and tech but it has and continues to be accused of being elitist and I doubt many newbs without the hindsight of knowledge would feel they could compete with people using 5 grand plus rigs and will not even dip a toe in the water and lets not pretend SFT is a route in for them.

I guess going back to the earlier days of FT Nick J having a scope that was way above that of most others was a factor in his success but I'm not sure there is much positive to say for that.
