Default For what scope

I saw one at the weekend that Kev Sayers had been given to show piece.
Looked well engineered, but I would say you won't be saving much weight compared to a sightron shade.

Thumbs up Rowan sunshade

I have got one it is 100 mm in lenght and well made
Tried it on the weekend in bright sunlight and it did make a difference. Rangefinding was better .so i added a gizmo that i had off one of the boys and all my settings were normal as if i was rangefindind on a normal dull day in wales

Weights are:-
The original Sightron 80mm long shade weighs 155g.
Rowan 100mm lon, 125g and our baffle design makes a big reduction in the internal reflections

Deker.

A potential remedy for the Sightron "whiteout" issues, or just an improvement?
