My brother in law and his son in law both have the VX5 HD. They are awesome and have the massive "Christmas tree" reticle in them.Yeah and with my eyes the Meopta outperformed the Swaro.During the daylight the Swaro was crystal clear clarity but so was the Meopta.I definitely feel like Swaro is over priced myself.I’m glad I got friends with great taste so I get to sample without buying lol.I really want a VX6HD in a 4-24x52 model with the CDS dial system I wish I had bought it first instead of my 3-15 VX5 because had I already bought the VX6 an didn’t have the VX5 I would be buying a Meopta.But since I have the VX5 I’m gonna take it off my hells canyon an put it on my .270
If I buy the .257 Weatherby I’m wanting then the VX5 goes on it and I’ll buy a Meopta for the .270 😎 I basically need more rifles
I took my 2.5 x 15 x 56 R2 Meostar up to their house just to see how mine compared to theirs. We were looking at trees and soy beans and a target at 600 yards as it got dark.
I honestly had no clue how they would compare. My previous scope was a Simmons 44 mag 3-10 x 44 I bought in the early 80's. Still a "decent" scope.
All three of us were blew away by how much clearer the Meopta was than the VX5. Their VX5's lost ability to see leaves, and barely could tell tree line from soybeans at dark, and my Meopta could still see individual leaves. What they have that I don't is Christmas tree reticle and dialing turrets. I have a red dot though, and my old eyes love it. Sounds crazy but it is so easy to see that red dot and not have my eyes go in and out of focus.
I bought the Meopta without ever having looked through it. I researched a 1000 posts on the internet, and many guys all said the same thing. If you want the best glass for the $$$, and don't care about dialing turrets etc, get the Meopta. Many of these guys had cabinet draws full of Leica, Kahles, Schmidt and Bender, Zeiss, Swarovkis, Hensoldt, etc. So I hoped I hadn't been duped by internet hype and bought a poor scope. Now I am so glad I took the gamble. It also seems to track great. Move it 15 clicks and you get 15 clicks on target. Which if I can swap a scope and shoot three shots and have it perfect zero I can swap gun to gun and not feel like I am burning ammo I shouldn't be.
