    Got my first set of EL's in 2004 after having my 'Swarovski moment' looking through a set on Century range at Bisley the year before. So at the very least they've been around 11 years.

    Look carefully at my avatar and you can see them hanging on the back of my chair.
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    we took some twitchers of on the boat to glass the cliffs ,one had a pr and i commented on her good choice ,and that my rifle scope was olso Swarovski ,one of the others chipped in and remarked ,if he had known Swarovski made rifle scopes he would not have bought his ,and i have regreted not asking what they would have got instead.That was in 2005 so they were about then not just the optics they are nice in the hand and well balanced on there strap.

    My choice is 10x42...8x can be a little underpowered particularly on open hill ground. Swarovski's are hard to better anyway with their after sales service almost unbeatable, so either choice is good. ATB
