    Looks like an OEM of the Bushnell

      Athlon may have cracked the code - ED Glass, reticle and what will hopefully be under $1k street price. The only thing that is disappointing is the weight.. 4lbs!

            Yeah - this almost has to be the Shrubnell OEM. Which isn't a bad thing. Also looks like the pricing is decent.

                  Hope it's executed better than the Bushnell. I've read reviews fraught with disappointment. I do like the 2 Cronus BTR's that I currently own and will probably pick up an Ares ETR in the summer. I'll also recommend AthlopOpticsGuy here on the Hide for anyone thinking about trying Athlon.

                    Not a surprise considering Athlon is made up of former Bushnell employees/engineers.

                      hopefully, they improved on it ... that is the point.
