Call for Price

I bought this for my Wicked Ridge because I wanted a reasonably priced nitrogen-filled fogproof/waterproof scope. Of the Ten Point scopes only the Evo-X Marksman Ten Point scope is nitrogen filled, the other Ten Point scopes supplied with the base crossbow packages or at upgrades are not. I checked with Ten Point about that to be sure.

The scope is not very clear on the outer 1/3, but for deer hunting at crossbow ranges I really don't notice that at all. Light gathering capability is excellent. On a cloudy day under heavy tree cover 15 minutes after sunset the image is noticeably brighter than what I can see with my naked eye. Some folks on other review forums have complained about the lighted reticle washing out the image. That is true at low light with the brighter rheostat settings, but turning down the rheostat as the light dims takes care of the problem. I get a bit a flare with the green at the lowest rheostat setting, but switching to red takes care of that. Overall an excellent $100 upgrade for my RDX 400.
