    It's genuine I had a sneak preview when I called at Rowan on Friday. It remains to be seen if anybody buys them.

    The irony, for me, is the digitalized info screeen in the foreground, whilst behind it flutters a piece of red wool windicator. :eek: :D

    Brilliant :rolleyes: :)

    Don't worry... Essentially, this is a computerised sidewheel label. You could achieve the same effect with a mm-scale on the wheel and some difficult tables for click values and compensations.

    I had a look at this in early November, and as maestro has indicated, it is a digital readout of what you already have in front of you, placed on a very small screen.
    A nice idea, but not for me, well not with my eyesight anyway. Lol.

    Old news and no better shooter

    Hey,

    saw this fellow at euskadi 2013, he's French.
    Ranging is 1, shooting the target to knock it over is an other thing.

    Oops, it's me on this photo at Open FT Euskadi 2013 ! :)
    The interest is only technical, just to have fun, for the rest, that is not used for nothing…
    This electronic parallax wheel is visible on this video, with in the end, my little cat Sidonie posing for posterity :D
