I am going to go with a Zeiss Conquest in 3 X 9 X 40 for my muzzleloader. Is their much difference in the darkness and boldness between the Z plex or 4a reticles? I hunt in Ohio in alot of hardwoods with some powerline areas as well. Thanks!

I can't speak for the Zeiss, but my Kahles CLs show a big difference between the plex and 4a.  Easier to see as the sun goes down.

I personally like the 4A more. Its personal preference a lot of the time though. I would say find one of each to look through. No one knows what you will like more than you.

I'd go with the 4A myself. Had it on a Conquest 4X fixed. It's very bold and easy to see.

I've got a 3x9x40 Conquest with the 4A reticle and I like it a lot.  The thick part of the reticle is a good bit heavier (very bold) than on the Z-Plex which is the reticle my Conquest 2.5x8x32 has.  The 4A will stand out better in extreme low light conditions.  But like Chris said, personal preference should play a big part in your decision.

The 4a reticle is really beginning to grow on me, I was always a plex guy.

I prefer the Zplex but I shoot most of my bullets at paper.  The 4a is noticeably heavier/thicker than the Zplex.  It may be more appropriate for a muzzleloader.  Either one will be a good fit.

New to the site and a novice, but I just bought a 2.5x8 32mm Conquest and the Zeiss site has a nice set-up where you can use different reticle in regular light and in low light.  The Z-plex reticle that I bought seemed better that the 4a and much better that any of the Rapid Z reticles.  Take a look, it seemed very helpful to me.

BugsNBows: did you get Zeiss to switch out the reticle to the 4a on your 4x conquest? I have been thinking very seriously about buying that scope the only thing holding me back is the lack of reticle choices. I am looking for a scope with the 4a.

Check out Zeiss' new reticle selector:

It gives you an idea how the reticle looks. It's pretty accurate. Very nice feature. Zeiss and Leupold do the best job at accurately representing their reticles in literature and website.
