    Well i have given the Prosport and T35 a good test over the last few weeks. Im improving though standers are still difficult. Found, still find,using 35x to be more difficult than say 10-14x. However have had some superb groups, albeit not consistently,thats the problem. Im not one to give up but i am now considering another pcp. I want to be as accurate as i can possibly be,and that simply means it has to be a pcp.I still prefer shooting a springer but crave the handling,and trigger of a pcp.Its the trigger which makes the standers difficult ,i really dont notice the recoil.Used to own an MPR and im considering an EV2. Feel like im selling out,but a mans gotta do whay a mans gotta do. Had a good look around and i feel the EV to be the most suitable. Bit concerned about some of the reviews on forums but if i buy new i will have a years warranty. I am really looking forward to FT comps and want to give myself the best chance to do well hence the possible move to pcp. I will have to sell my springers to help fund the EV so i hope im making the right choice.Any advice appreciated.:)

    If your Prosport has the standard sporter stock Ill bet you are struggling with the shallow forend and lowish cheekpiece height? As far as PCP's go I have a Mark1 EV (with T35). The MK1 EV seems to to be held in fairly low regard but mine has been great over the last four months. Having said that I did buy a ProTarget as a spare rifle in case anything went wrong with the EV. The funny bit is the PT is just so nice to shoot :)

    Might not be having this conversation if i could try the Prosport with an FT type stock. But your right not happy with the std stock.

    FT springer stocks do come up secondhand, but maybe for the TX more often.

    Springers definatly need a fair bit more ability, and if you score well with them theres serious bragging rights :p, I'm in the process of building up a HW77 for FT and hoping to be ready for the winter series, going to need a Burris RA soon anyone know of any for sale?
