I have been looking at getting a Sightron SII Big Sky to put on my 350 mag and wanted to know how the Zact-7 coating compares to Rainguard? Is it a hydrophobic coating? I have experience with Bushnell Elite 4200 and really liked it but eye relief was just too short for my 350 (even after I cut down the LOP). So basically will the Zact-7 give me the same benefits of Rainguard? Also, is there anyone else with decent glass currently making a similar hydrophobic coating?

Thanks for the help!

The hydrophobic coating on the Sightron BS line works as advertised (just like the Bushy Rainguard). For more cash, both Leica and Zeiss offer upper level scopes with a hydrophobic coating.

Thank you! Does the lower end Zeiss Conquest offer that coating as well or just the upper end? I have owned Zeiss before and have been impressed with the low light clarity but I was thinking of trying something new with the Sightron. They seem to get good reviews and have an excellent value for the money.
