Most of the time we only put pen paper to moan about all and sundries. Well I'm just letting you all know of some good, no excellent service. We all like to try before we buy, and in these tight times it is even more benifical to test drive a product before parting with our ever dwindling disposable incomes. I'm in the process of saving up to upgrade my current SLC bino for a rangefinder pair and have tried Swarovski and Leica. Both were great products and upto the job except with my eyes swarovski is not suitable due to not picking up the display reading. I was offered a test by Jonathan Carrington nse for Zeiss sports optics and I thought it would be the usual wind up after getting an email out the blue.
I spoke to Jon and was pleasently surprised it was all legit. Jon offered to bring a pair of 8x45 victory rf for me to use on a stalk on my ground for the morning with him in tandem. Jon arrived 06.00 last Friday, with not just the 8x45 but a second compact set, Night vision monocular and the new duralyt 3-12x50. "Here you go" he says. So off we went and low light and clarity were brilliant as we stalked the ground. I spied one fallow and a munti and sat listening to two munti bucks barking at each other. No shot on this occasion. Then to my range where I tested the accuracy of the rfs and the scope. All performed well above what I expected. Conclusion is I'll be buying a set after Christmas and will eventually buy the scope in the illuminated recticule model. This is just to praise Jonathan and Zeiss.
I was telling this tale to a head keeper I know who gave me a similar story about having his binos repaired twice by Zeiss and again he recieved above brilliant service. This keeper has numerous Zeiss products.
So thanks again Jon.
