As you can see, I never said it was parallax free, furthermore, you say that my article was reamed by the HFT circuit? Well, I remember a few people not liking it, but most of them had not even looked through a Tac 30, let alone spent any real time with it and they were only repeating what they had heard from a few other shooters.
At the weekend, I shot with two newbies at Maldon, who both use a Tac 30 and think its great, Ian Bianbridge recently had a 57 with his at the southern hunters, beating, myself, Doppa and Lurch. I have had lots of emails from shooters who have read my articles and have purchased a Tac 30 and they have told me they are very happy with it. I would never ever recomend a scope that I do not believe in. This is why I put my money where my mouth is and use one.
I can pretty much have whatever scope I want and for next year, I am 90% sure I will stick to the Deben Hawke Tac 30 10x42.
Master of understatement there, i think the best way to describe the reaction of many of the better shooters was 'Napalmed'. I have no doubt that the article was written honestly as, for you, there probably wasn't any noticable px error. I owned a TAC 30 for 6 months and found it didn't work for me. lanky mark tried his for almost a year before getting rid so i'm not just passing on hear say. I objected to your post because you recommended a scope to a newbie that hasn't taken a single major HFT title. No mention of the scopes that have...the SR6, Viper and Leups?
Not very objective then....really?
Honestly not trying to have a dig....just trying to balance the advice given to Charlie.
