I really like the CR scopes. Super sturdy and open top for letting light in. I shoot a 1 3/8" they also make a 1 3/4". This scope will fit every sight made but locks on to a CBE sight really well.
I don't think Shrewd can be beat. Limitless options. The thing I like about it the most is my up pin is infront of my lens and I can take the lens out and shoot without it and not affect my marks. Also I like the way it locks down on a CBE sight you don't have to worry about it moving. Very easy to work on this scope you can change the level in about 10 seconds if you need too as well.
Worth every penny. Oh yeah I think the CR is better between the CR. and a Super Scope. I don't like my lens being held in by some nylon screws. I have broken a couple of those screws off and it's not fun trying to get the broken thread out.. CR built much better.IMHO
I am using APEX target with F.V. Examplar lens. with CR scope you can install the lens at either the far end or near end of the housing. several positions to install fiber. I used to use beiter original. it's good. but the view is a little dark for me at indoor.
try them with your bow and sight.
I love my super scope I have never had a problem with it and thier are a lot of great shooters that shoot them. I will have one as will the rest of the wilde bunch. I know that Dave C and Braden all shoot them last year at the worlds.
god, you guys are killing me. I know DC and Braden shoots a super scope, which is what got me into thinking about one. Then I know Jim uses CR. Tony Tazza uses CR, Nathan Brooks, Jimmy Butts and Eric Griggs use CR. What do you shoot GRIV? Wish I could try one of each. I currently shoot a black eagle as DC used to but they are not made anymore and I think I want to go down in power to a 2 or 3x for indoors.
There is alot of good scopes out there. I use a Classic for 3-d and a Titan for indoors. I think it more important to have good GLASS
in you scope, the right power and the right fiber or ring or dot. Also the right size for the job. JMO
Your probably right Yankee.
I prefer the super scope indoors and have one of the older CRs without the cutout I prefer outdoors. I see alot of difference in the brightness of the lens between the two indoors (using the same lens). The NE being brighter.
Has anyone compared the brightness between the CR with cutout too to the super scopes indoors?
