Re: Hawke XB30 Compact Thoughts

Glass clarity is good but not as good as my usual scopes. I do not like the reticle one bit. I bought this one over the XB30 https://www.vortexcanada.net/en/tactical/riflescopes/strike-eagle/vt-se-1824-1-vortex-strike-eagle-1-8x24-riflescope-ar-bdc-2 I'm confident that it is a better choice in ever...

Re: Hawke XB 30 Pro

I've had both, the Hawke is no comparison to your VXIII. Honestly I hate my Hawke on my Ravin. The optics are not what I am used to and reticle is way too cluttered. I found out recently from another member here, that resale value on them is awful. I'm talking less than half of new after 6 months an...

It's not wide. Micro limbs.
This is a bow you have to shoulder and shoot to appreciate.
Awesome, did not know that.

Like this a lot

Re: Any Info On Excalibur Assassin Crossbow ???

You hope it locks at full draw! It may be a $1,599 dollar finger amputating machine, just like the Ravin.lol Buddy of mine sent me a photo of a friend of his that lost his thumb with a Ravin loading it. He knew I had 1 I hurt my hand pretty badly with my Ravin decocking it. Didn't lose any fingers,...

Re: questions about a new scope

Leupold VXR scopes are illuminated.

My Hawke was new this year. I don't know what it is worth, but I will sell it to you. I'm tagged out on bucks and done for the season.

Re: questions about a new scope

For those who have posted here who are unhappy with their XB 30's and would prefer a Leupold Crossbones I have a very nice one I'll trade you for that "crappy old Hawke XB30 PRO." :wink: I live very close to the Leupold plant in Beaverton Ore . I have 2 Leupold spotting scopes, a set of Gold Ring 8...

Re: questions about a new scope

I have an XB30pro on one of my set ups. Everything else I own has leupold crossbones on them . To be brutally honest the hawke scope leaves a lot to be desired in a high priced scope. Optics quality is like looking through a fishbowl with crosshairs. The reticle is way too busy with more hash marks...

Re: Looking to update my scope

I recently bought the Hawke XB30 Pro, and I'm not liking it as much as I thought would. Cluttered reticle is beyond annoying and it is the hardest scope I have ever seen to get behind. It's almost impossible for my to get a full picture in it without moving my head all around. I tried the Hawke ring...

Re: reflex sight

If you like a reflex sight in the last minutes of shooting hours, over a scope. More power to ya.

I've used both and there is no comparison. Give me a Leupold VXR 2-7
