Hey all, is it just mine or are T5Xi parallax adjustment just inaccurate and suck.

Took the TSXi out for the first time. Sighted in on paper within 3 shots, and then move it out to 100 to do the final adjustments. But damn, I can’t seem to be able to to get parallax adjusted to get a clear picture at 100 to be able to see anything.

At 100, I adjust my parallax to 100, but it’s so blurry I have to dial it back to 75 to br able to see anything. However, even at 75, the 40% of the outter edge is blurred/cloudy, and middle is somewhat clear, or as clear as I can get it.

Anyone with experience or suggestions?

Ignore the numbers and adjust parallax with your eyes, meaning target stays behind the reticle with slight head movement.

Never had experience with one that’s that far off. Usually it’s only slightly off.

The bigger problem is really the cloudy image.

Check the focus. I have the same scope and had that problem last week. Adjust the focus slowly to your eye and it should solve the problem.

Awesome thanks for the tip I’ll give that a shot.

Whenever the parallax on my T5Xi seems wonky, I reset the diopter and then things are well again. Here’s a link to a method I’ve found works well.

Numbers don't match on either of mine but it's fine, just adjust to my eye. I'd make sure my diopter was good and you should be good to go.

Is something changing with your vision or is the diopter adjustment moving on the scope? I ask because you really shouldn’t have to readjust the diopter setting if it’s done correctly.

My eyes (as with most) do go through a daily cycle. This generally becomes more profound with age. Also, hydration through the day can impact this. Is this something I do _always_, no; but for the absolute best focus, I’ve always found starting with diopter adjustment yields best results. Just an opinion based on my experience.

Thanks guys. Will give this a shot when I get get a chance. Also spoke to Steiner. Mentioned I’m going to try adjusting the focus/diopter. They simply suggested I send it backs for repair. Great service.

So, tried to readjust focus. It helped a little bit. But, the diff between cloudy and clarity is still a very fine millimeters of adjustments away from one another. Very weird. I’ll be sending it back and have them take a look at it.

Thanks all for the suggestions and help. I’ll report back once I get it back from Steiner.
