Can anyone here distinguish a difference in glass quality between Kahles and Swarovski scopes in equivalent models?  I've peered through a Swarovski, but not a Kahles.   How do they compare?

I had a brand new Swarovski 3-10x42 that I bought for about $150 below current pricing...then I bought a Kahles CL 3-9x42 off of the sample list.  After making extensive comparisons in various lighting, I sold the Swarovski and made a few bucks  on it and bought another Kahles CL 3-9x42 off of the sample list.  Don't get me wrong, the differences were subtle, but when the light got low, the Kahles consistently prevailed, and overall I found the Kahles to have better resolution.  I also liked the slightly shorter length of the Kahles, which fit my rifles a little better.  I'm going to buy another Kahles CL while the pricing is still favorable and set it aside for the next rifle I buy that deserves the best.

Well skunk, for that you don't need a scope or a rifle.  You can just use you own God given equipment, and personal emanations, of course.

I'm real happy with my z6. The clarity and brightness is amazing but what like the most is how versatile it is. I got the the 2-12x50 and it covers everything I'm doing during hunting season, breaking brush, stalking, long range, it's pretty cool.

JackG -

Other than the Z6 that Mike650 is talking about, Kahles is the way to go.  I have two (CL and AH) and plan on picking up two more (C's) in the next several months.  This is coming from someone who has Swarovski binoculars and a Swaro HD spotting scope...
