    Swarovski Lens Covers - No more Butler Creek

    I had a spare after loosing one and Swarovski sending me 2 as a replacement. When they arrived, I just happened to have the z6i off the rifle.

    My Binos were the 10x42 EL's, my z6i is a 5-30x50. The ocular diameter looked very similar so I tried it

    So being rubber and more robust (which wouldn't be hard) than Butler Creek, I can see these lasting years!!

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Design seems similar to Meopta standard covers (for riflescopes). IMHO it's not very usable, I rather use bikini covers tied to scope body with some paracord.

    It works perfectly well and far quicker than bikini covers. A binocular cover for a 42mm cover will work on the back of the scope I have being using this system for the last few years and its superbly.Regards,Glendine.

    'worth the money' - difficult to quantify: are swaro scopes worth the money?.
    'basically crap' - certainly not. I only use the objective covers and they are the best quality of any I've seen, including Leupold.

    How does one 'waist' money?.

    A severe case of misquotation. I obviously own a swarovski scope so I do not see them as a waist of money.The scope covers however are considered by many to be not completely perfected and thus to expensive for the product. "How do you waist money" that up to you..

    No misquotation at all. I speak from experience - not hearsay.
    Sorry you missed my 'pun'. (waist/waste).

    I use the Jack Pike neoprene stretch covers, they keep the turrets dry when raining.
