Wanted to start a new thread instead of jumping on the "HHA optimizer scope choice" thread. Just got a used DTM SS330 minus sights (YEAH ME!). Been researching about the HHA Optimizer and am thinking this is the way I want to go. Now the other thread talks about upgrade choices which is fine but I did not want to hijack that thread so the questions is "Are the high dollar optics worth it or perhaps better stated are they really needed. Please excuse my ignorance in this, I understand and believe you get what you pay for but are you saying I just won't be satisfied with a 100.00 or less scope and if not specifically why not? Just a guy here who does not have a lot of money to spend especially when some scopes are more than I paid for the whole crossbow!
