They are truly a love - hate type scope. I personally don't like the illuminated scope. The lighted circles tend to blurr too much for my taste. The Hawke MAP is a very capable scope.(for me) The lighted reticle might add a few more minutes to the hunt at the very end of legal shooting hours.
That being said, I will be using a lighted reticle this season. It will be the XB-30 more than likely. The light on this model turns down so low, that it is barely visable.
I had a red dot and I HATED it in the daylight it was hard to see and in low light conditions that was all you could see. I hope the green does not reflect back as much. Can that scope be used as a regular scope (turn the lights off ) or is that the only reticle ?
The XB 30 is also going to be illuminated. I like it much better than the Hawke SR. It has crosshairs like this + that get smaller as the yardage increases and the light turns down low enough that the +'s don't merge.
Ten Point also makes a three dot illuminated scope (made by Hawke) that works for some. It has three dots that can be seen in daylight and when the light starts to fade you can turn on the illumination.
