Currently own a kahles 2-7 CL which Im absolutley stoked with. Are in the market for another scope and have the opportunity to purchase a new CT 2-7x36mm or kahles latest offering 2-7x36 KX model.
My question,  is there any optical/glass difference between the CT line or the current KX line??

cervus,
    I just sent an email to Kahles requesting information on their current Helia KX 2-7X36 model. Specifically how it compares to the discontinued 1" models (AH, CL, etc.) and if it is or will be available in the US. I will post their reply when I get it.

Since the KX version was just recently announced, I don't believe anyone knows for certain and only Kahles can answer that question.

ADK, I look forward to hearing the reply you receive from Kahles.

I received this response from Kahles today:
 
Hello and thank you for contacting Kahles Optics,

This model is not currently sold in the US but we are working on offering new optics to our hunting line in the coming years. The 2-7 is an optic we would really like to bring to the US but the manufacturing and importing costs of this scope make it very expensive in the US. This scope would sale for nearly 1400 in the US with the 15% import tax.

Regarding technology, the KX line has the pinnacle of lens coatings and optical design. This is the latest and most state of the art system we are offering at the moment. To your eye, same power range and conditions, you would notice a more brilliant color through the KX over the AH CL line. These still are great scopes even though they are aged, as I use a AH 3-9x42 for short range hunting and have never been left wanting more for what I use it for. The KXi, which we currently offer is a 3.5-10x50 optic with illumination. if you are looking for an incredibly durable and lightweight scope, please consider this optic.MSRP is 1488 on it and it is offered with two reticles. The 4D and 4D-Dot.

Regards, and please let me know if you have any questions or if i can be of additional support,
Ken

The Kahles 2-7 is a fantastic scope.  I have 3 of the CLs with MultiZero and they hopefully will be some of the last ones I part with...
