  1. Real life experiences of pulsar accolade LRFs?

    I’m currently thinking about a new thermal spotter and the accolade LRF has caught my eye. I’m using a ward WT3 at the moment and like it but would prefer something a little more powerful and with a built in LRF. I think if I do go down that route it would most likely be the XQ38 version as...
