The Ares BTR is WAY better than the Diamondback. Coming from a dealer of both. Diamondback looks cool, meh glass, ok turrets, cannot speak to tracking. Ares has pretty good glass, killer at this price. Turrets also just ok, decent with a bit of touching up.Haven’t had a chance to run the 4.5-27 yet. Still need a mount.
No experience with the Diamondback Tactical, but it’s normal price is 399. This Athlon is normally over 800 and is only marked down because they are blowing them out. Something tells me they’re not in the same class.
