Basspro optical test results.

 

Testing proves that Swarvoski is better then Schmidt & Bender.

 

Swarvoski optic's are: sharper, brighter, and more duriable then Schmidt & Bender.

 

By buying a Schmidt & Bender you are not buying the best.

 

Buy the Swarvoski.

Will there be a public viewable record of this testing? I don't see the review on basspro's site.

Well gee...

 

Someone better quickly bring this important information to light; especially before the Marine Corp replaces all their Unertl Scopes with the S&B 3x12 Scopes..

Making a statement like that makes me think that you guys are just trying to get people stirred up rather than giving people honest opinion and advice.  If I am wrong then I apologize.

 

However on the chance that you are being serious, let me just say that I disagree.  I own a Swarovki PH 1.5-6x42, Swarovski PH 2.5-10x42, and a Schmidt & Bender 3-12x42.  Granted each has their pros and cons but optically the S&B is the best of the three in my opinion.

I think Swarvoski and Swarovski must be two different brands.

I bought a Schmidt & Bender scope recently. I'm very Impressed. I hate that Swarovski might be number 2 after all. I have their binoculars, spotting scopes and I have their rifle scopes on all my rilfes except my new Cooper 204. Ruger.

Are the people that are performing these tests still employed??? ie: durability tests???

Why do I feel like I owe Dale Clifford an apology.

This guy must own Bass Pro Shops.

To, Roy Finn

 

I do not own Bass Pro. I am a Product Manager at Cabela's Retail. However I do own a small chain of Gentlemen's Clubs, In Michgan called the "Vu".

 

For the Record.

 

There is no real proof backing up any of my past posts. I was simply trying to get feedback on consumer's preferences.

I do prefer Swarovski, but I really think I'm going to start looking into buying more S&B optics.

 

Kyle

Dear SwarvoMI, First and foremost I would like to apologize to you if any of my remarks came across as to sarcastic. I an Irish by origin and have a sense of humor that sometimes offends people. You would not be the first person I had to make an amends to. I think people, including myself, was that the statement came through as absolute which I suspect was not your intention. I would agree with you completely that Leupold scopes, while they are very good scopes, are overpriced. When you get into the high end top dollar scopes, I think that people are probably just stating their preference and not that any of he top scopes are vastly superior to another. When I stated earlier that I was Irish, that was not to open any banter regarding syllogisms related to Irish, simply that I can come across as sarcastic. You obviously have access to a wide variety of optics which is a good thing and I appreciate the time you took to post your observations along with you staff. Welcome to the form.

 

The "Vu", hum, must put that on my to do list.

Kyle,


Now that the smoke has settled, the dust is cleared, and the mirrors are broken, and for the record, let me give you a little sound "customer preference feedback".  First, this is a great forum were people come to learn.  Everyone has an opinion about optics ect, some agree, some argue, but all opinions here are valued.  Even the first timer, the novice, or the expert are all welcome.  At this forum, everyone is equal, opinions are equal, and everyone learns from each other.  This is the place where experiences are shared and knowledge is gained, that is what this forum is all about.  What makes this forum better than other forums is it is mostly about true real life experiences.  So, as a member of this great forum, if you have a question then please ask it, if you want feedback on what optics are best than create a survey, but please don't make statements that are not true, if it is your opinion than thats great, but don't think for one moment that can fool all the members and staff at this forum.  I did not write this message to belittle you, I just don't like seeing other forum members at each others throats over fictional statements.


Bill
