The eye relief is 4.1-3.5".
You can see where the experts around here feel the S1 falls.

SWFA shows a plex reticle with the 3-9x32 scope and Sightron shows a thin cross hair. I don't know if they are the same. Depending on your use the cross hair might be a bit thin for hunting. This reticle is hard to pick up in margianal light, thick cover or shooting into fields. It is fine for target. 
Sightron has a good reputation and certainly rates a buy around here.

The high praise by Koshkin and others of the scopes and company is what has me looking at them. My primary reservation is the critical eye relief, eye box or whatever the proper term is.( which is it ? ) I don't recall any mention on the subject.
