Ok guys, we'll do a TAKE TWO.....since ya'll rake me over the coals for leaving out some manufacturers. LOL 

Hopefully, this will take care of the vast MAJORITY.

SVT---hopefully all "racism" of the scopes has been removed and you may vote now..LOL

On to the voting.....---Bboy623LocoBig Grin

Well now that you made this more politically correct Ill cast my vote for my Burris Six X w/#4 reticle. It may not be perfect in any one area but it is a helluva versitle scope and is the only thing in this price range with a #4 reticle and a hydrophobic coating

So, it says I'm unable to vote. Do you have to have a certain amount of posts or something before you can vote in polls?

Because you have a 72mm Hensoldt.  That causes unhealthy feelings of envy in just about everyone else.

Or it is possible that you need to have 50 posts to vote in polls.

What if I want to vote solely for NC star?  I can't because it's combined with simmons, baraska and tasco.  This poll is flawed.Big Smile

Verry tuf,  putting al scopes on the page, ...
Falcon is also a nice scope, for his price Wink
Compare a scope from 200 E with one from 2000 E, is also verry difficult

This is tough, because my favorite individual scope happens to be a S&B, but my favorite scope BRAND overall is Zeiss.

We've done this poll multiple times, and it ends up being a contest between Swarovski and Zeiss.

Actually the polls should be based on price range. Like <$200, $200-$500, $500-$1000, $1000-$2000 and >$2000. I know that would be a lot of polls but these are the categories that I see over and over again when people are looking for a scope.

The reason for this poll is not about how much your scope costs versus another, but which is YOUR favorite. I came close to voting for Bushnell (specifically for me 3-9x40 Trophy) as it has brought home my biggest deer to date--a 7 pointer. But man that's gonna change this year with my Zeiss!!!--Bboy623

Bboy,

Congrats on your 7 point buck!  Here in MT that is a BIG buck.  You were talking about 7 points on each antler, right?

Wink

Kidding aside, I also have become attached to gear that have been on my best hunts, or yielded my best trophies. 

I'm sure that Zeiss is a sure bet for besting your personal record this year!  Good luck!

Surprised no one has voted for Bushnell yet, I thought they are quite poular in the USA.

You can't throw a rock without hitting someone who owns a Bushnell, it's just not their favorite.

NC coastal deer are more like Montana zygotes!! I've seen them on hunting shows...they're only a smiggin smaller than the ones in Sckashawon (spelling)!!!!

this isn't a favorite scope poll --- its a favorite brand poll

My favorite scope is the one that does the same thing, time after time after time.

Does your favorite scope's brand differ from your favorite brand of scope?
