2018 ATA Show

Post by ThunderXB » Mon Jan 08, 2018 2:17 pm

SO, with the ATA show this weekend, any new product leaks?

Any guesses??

I'd like to see a better all-around crossbow scope.

I have 3 different models that I really like (Vortex XBR, Hawke SR Pro, Zeiss XB75), but none of them offers all the features of the others.

Be nice to see one that did.
Bulldog 400, Hawke XB30, JBK string, Dr S, TriggerT
380 Blackout, XB75, DM String, Dr S, TT, ti64
405 Matrix, XBR, HAA, DM string, TT, ti64
405 Matrix Blackout, XBR, HAA, DM string, TT, ti64

Press Releases
Hawke's New Line of Crossbow Scopes for 2018.
Hawke will launch FOUR new crossbow scopes at the ATA, be the first to see these exclusive NEW scopes.

The notable products include the NEW XB30 Compact scopes offering an exclusive patented locking speed adjuster ring to match your bow speed making the aim points fall into place for deadly accuracy up to 475 fps. The 14 layer fully multi coated wide angle optical system, in a 30mm chassis, is available in a 1.5-6×36 or 2-8×36 magnification with a XB30 Compact SR reticle exclusively designed by Hawke, calibrated to the arrow’s trajectory and engraved with accurate aim points from 20 to 100 yards.

The new XB1 & XB offer 11 fully multi-coated optical system in a 1 inch mono-tube chassis. The XB1 includes a speed adjuster ring for speeds from 250 to 425 fps while the XB is designed for speeds of 340 fps. In 1.5-5×32 & 3×32.

The scopes deliver what consumers have been asking for from crossbow scopes; smaller, lighter 30mm & 1” tube models, with speed calibration to match the latest crossbow technology. Crossbow accuracy has never been easier than with the Hawke Optics.

The XB30 Pro lists for more ($319) than the 2 new 30mm scopes and has 16 coatings on the glass. Think the new versions will have as good of optics? I’ve wanted a Hawke to have even better optics, not the same or lesser.

I doubt they upped their glass, i have a new XB1 Ill. 1.5x5 SR. It does not come close to the Glass in the lower grade Loopys. I don't think i will buy anudder Hawke jus does not have the good glass i need in my scopes

There’s too much in that scope for these ole tired eyes! I definitely don’t need no 60-100 yd markings either!

My wish is to see a new crossbow scope offering by Leupold. With Leupold having over 700 employees under one roof and over 100 of them are Engineers means there is a certainly a lot of brainpower under one roof the way I see it.

New for 2018, Leupold is using new advanced coatings for better twilight performance on their higher end scopes, which usually means a trickle down effect where last years best glass coating move to their lesser costing scopes, usually and no additional cost.

Twice in the last 14 months I've written the Leupold Engineers expressing interest in a better crossbow scope. I was informed they are looking at that market keenly. I hope this is the year.
