    Following discussions @ Lea Valley - it seems they are Banned as a Aid @ UKAHFT Shoots

    Lea Valley Committee - had a quick talk and decided they are allowed to be used

    @ Lea Valley Run Shoots

    Thought the idea was to improve shooting not stop improvements

    More of a distraction than an aid.

    Cheers for that. I am amazed, a Bisley Scope enhancer does the same thing really, ie; makes sure you look through dead centre everytime and reduce paralax error. Are these banned too?

    I used a scope maximiser and they still allowed room for the eye to be off axis. From what I can see with these, it allows you to judge that to a much more certain degree than an enhancer would on a low mag scope. Considering the tidbits passed on here about how to reduce pa error, I can see how these would be a technical advantage when combined. I think HFT is keen to make it about how you use the kit rather than what kit you have. For FT, with high mag and PA adjustment, as Jon says, I think they're probably unnecessary, unless you shoot SFT.

    Bit silly really,just cant see the big deal? To my mind scope enhancers give a greater advantage.

    But that gives smokers an unfair advantage over non smokers - same as glasses and these daft butler creek things with arrows on.;) Can we have a rule like the glasses rule which says if you start smoking on a course then you have to keep smoking until you finish?:D:D:D
