Not even at $130 on sale at a local shop. I looked through it just inside the store and it felt like it should be on sale for $65. This has to be the most unimpressive spotter I've seen. It is worse than the refurbed Sentry I got for $72. Rotating the magnification ring causes it to loosen right up and it feels like it will come right off. I noticed too that going from 50 down to 25X the FOV hardly changed. Everything just got smaller and was displayed in a tinier circle.

Hey, no surprises really but what a difference between that and the Excursion line. While in the store, I checked out the Vortex Nomad and non-ED Skyline. They were both really nice and had decent tripods. I wish the ED Skyline came in a smaller objective. The Nomad was nice because it is so compact and light. I'd just prefer nicer glass.

I had the 20-60x65 trophy and pretty much came to the same conclusion, it is since been upgraded.

Even my old Sentry at least changes the FOV as you go from 18-36X. The Trophy had the effect of just making me feel like I got farther away from the same view.
