I've just found this forum and I'm surprized about how much information I can find here.

I've search over the net for some information on the firefly crosshair thickness, but nothing have clearly anser some of my questions.

For those who have experiences with firefly reticle, how does the crosshair look in daylight conditions? Does it look like a normal multi-x reticle, and does the crosshair is thicker than a normal multi-x?

Thank you

It is a normal Multi-X reticle. With 10 second exposure to the direct light from a flashlight will "charge" the FireFly reticle so that it glows green. The picture below shows how it look when it is charged, and black when it's not charged.

The Firefly reticle has a three step down graduation from outer to inner. The center section does not have the luminescent material. The center section is fine enough for paper punching. The reticle will not glow in daylight regardless if it is charged or not.
