    Hi all,

    perhasp it is of some interest for some of you.

    It seems so that S&B has quitely upgraded the internals of their FT2 model. I had a chance to play arond with one of the upgraded models for 2-3 hours few week ago. I also had the chance to directly compare the current FT2 model with the new one. My personal observation was (but please note that I am really a pretty lousy German FT shooter (although with good eyes) and more shooters need to check): wider FOV, slightly brighter, much better snap-in in range finding @45-50m (the distance on the standard wheel was around 4mm/m and equal for the entire range from 9 – 50m).

    As far as temp shifting is concenred I did not have the time to check.

    I also heard the rumour that one or two of the new ones may also be in UK for testing/review.

    Overall it was very promising but let s see whether it can deliver what it promises.

    I understood it may hit the market beginning of July (this year).

    Cheers

    I heard that there was a new one out, but haven't seen through one. I've seen through an FT2 here and have access to it to compare with that and other scopes.

    Hi,

    the upgraded S&B is already out for quite some time. I got mine few weeks ago and I am quite happy with it.

    I think it was also presented at the European and World Cup.

    To my knowledge the upgrade can be retro fitted on a S&B FT2 but you need to contact S&B or the dealer you bought it from.

    Cheers
