Leatherwood Professional 2.5-10x44

Here is a brief review of the Leatherwood Professional 2.5-10x44 scope. 

I have looked at another Leatherwood scope (Uni-Dial) earlier this year and was not particularly impressed with it.  That set the bar pretty low for this scope.  However, I was somewhat pleasantly surprised by it once I looked at it in more detail.  Still, there are quite a few things I would like to see different and I am unlikely to make this one of my recommended choices, but this is a better fit than the Uni-Dial in its respective price bracket.

Reviewing this scope turned out to be a bit more difficult than I expected.  I always try to draw some parallels to competing products, and I had a difficult time finding proper comparables for it.  The problem is really with the pricing.  It  puts it pretty close to some Japanese made scopes like Mueller Tac II.  Here are a few scopes in varying price ranges that are configured similarly to the Leatherwood.
