    Two things spring to mind - weight and the requirement of high rings and the consequential comb height affects. Will be very good optics and good tracking.

    what exactly are you using it for? for stalking i would say it is way too much, for targets yep go for it

    I would go for the 56. It isn't as bad for all round shooting. The 72 is a beast more suited to target shooting or
    shooting sat up from a postion. Or if you do alot of foxing from truck etc

    I have used one.

    Obviously it needs higher than usual mounts, light transmission is extremely good.

    Can't say it was a huge difference over the 56 but, it was very good.

    For me it was just too much scope for a stalking rifle, I imagine if you do a lot of fox or Boar shooting under moonlight from static positions it's an awesome tool.

    If you can get one cheap enough, certainly worth trying.

    Among other scopes I also have the 56mm version and was just interested in others views on the 72mm
    i know its a big scope but its main use would be cwd sex identification at last light
    I have half made my mind up but input from other users of this scope is appreciated
    Regards Andy
