Thread: One for the Hill Men

    One for the Hill Men

    Hi Chaps,

    Im after upgrading my draw tube spotting scope, it wont be hard

    I would really like a Gray&Co. But the 1000 odd price tag sort of sinks me a wee bit. However when oggling on the website (Grahams) I noticed they have a "cheaper" option - this http://www.grahamsonline.co.uk/product.php?ID=3879. Looks like quite a nice bit of kit (so does it all though) and at that price, with a little scrimping and saving, its acheivable.

    Does anyone have any knowledge of the above? I know its not a three draw, but still it looks long enough to steady on a stick.


    Rumblings welcome (:

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    I'll try and remember to have a look at one when I go in in a couple of weeks. Looks nice but is a helluva lot cheaper (but hopefull not nastier)...guessing it's made on for'n shores.

    I haven't used one myself.......but my headstalker reckoned they weren't that good. You will be better off keeping an eye open for one of the hertel reuss ones that pop up on ebay (usually near the stag season).

    The grays telescopes are good......nice and light......but not worth the price tag!!!

    I use an Optolyth spotting scope that bought of Ebay for 160, best money I ever spent!

    My mate has that model and it is very good. We compared it with my old H&R draw tube and the Optolyth was better. Only problem I can see is that half of the guys on here will bid now and it will make good money! JC

    These early Greys glass have a narrow field of view on them than the newer ones,Im sure you could get the newer eyepiece for it as I think they are all the same dimentions.Dont quote me on it tho.Try emailing Grahams but dont expect an answer!!
