Here is USO's latest reticle desighned by USO to outperform the GenII........borrowed this from he Snipershide.

I do not mind the 10 but would like the center opened up. What do you gentlemen think?

I feel it's far to complicated.

Here is to much information in the center of the reticle.

 

If you needs a measuring device like this it would be better to have it in the bottom where it's out of the most important area of the scope.

I defently agree with the center, seems cluttered. Also I am a bit skeptical with the thickness of the reticle at 17x and its visibility in poor light.

Thinking about it last night and the numbers could be a bit smaller and a dark wider bar at the very bottom where it ends would be cool.

Yeah, too thin for my tastes and it's hard to acquire the center of the fine crosshairs against that backdrop, for me.  On the other hand, my P4 SB reticle is a tad too thick, but they've come out with a P4 Thin.  I agree with most of those posts, lose the 10 and go .25, .5, .75 increments.

 

Later, Chris

The P4F seems cool and is getting good reviews. I am going to be in the market for a scope like this late this year and so far

I am thinking Gen II but that could all change, alot of products still to come by that time.

Converging radial lines form a group called Ehrenstein figures. The length, width, number, and contrast of the radial llines determine the strength of the phenomenon. The central patch and circular border have no physical correlation and are illusionary. Depending on length etc. the central figure can appear to be in front of the radial lines. If a black line circle is inserted it will destroy the "to much information" illusion in center. The addition of a colored circular ring or anulus will make the central white patch to appear even whiter, a grey patch will give the illusion of shimmering, while grey discs and purple circles will cause will cause yellow-green flashing lights when the eyes move back and forth across the page. This spatial configuration of the linesto make the illusion happen suggests the presence of neurons that respond to the termination of lines. These neurons in the visual cortex combine with inputs in another central area that summates causing extraordinary brightness.  This is a very active area in cognitive research.

The reticle is not nearly as busy as the horus system, or as informative as the NF NPRR or the Tubbs reticles and unless the glass used is the quality of the finest camera lenses edge definition past the 70% central area would make use of the 7-10 markers questionable. Shortening all the legs and the addition of a central black ring would do wonders.

I have boorowed an USO 3,2-17X

I tried the low light capability and the illumination is far to strong.

This scope is actually totally useless with the illumination on, even on the lowest setting.

 

Would you people with experience from USO say that this is something wrong with this particular scope, or is this a typical USO thing?

A little of both, USO is, I believe, in the process of changing their rheostats. NXSis a little worse-you need a jewelers screw driver, take off the battery cover, to adjust the illuminosity.

From what I heard USO is suppose to upgrade this summer,the old one was not bad IMO but did need improvement compared to the exellent IR's of brands like S&B,Zeiss,Kahles,Meopta. Like Dale said much better than the NXS IR for shure, this IR system is in great need of a upgrade. The NXS I had I got rid of in a few weeks,this bieng one of the reasons.

           OK Gentlemen the reticle has been redesighned. I like the new reticle desighn much more than the first proto.

I do not have any further input on any changes, should be a very nice combo with the new rheostat that is going to be implemented by USO. What do you  gentlemen think?

I think that there is still to much stuff in the center of the reticle.

 

A std. mildot in the center and maybe a measuring device lower in the scope.
