I can see clearly now!
I was so frustrated with my old sight not letting me see in low light! I had deer right in front of me that I could count the fleas on their back and yet couldn't see through my red dot sight due to poor light transmission. What a difference this makes! Now those prime windows berfore sundown and just after sunup are no longer shut. I get a clean, bright sight picture with this scope and the adjustable reticle brightness is very useful.

Not Very Impressive
This scope was disappointing after using a different model included with my new crossbow, when I went to find something similar to retrofit onto a previously purchased weapon.
While in general the scope is fairly good and easy to use, there is a definite problem with the illuminated reticle design and there are other quality issues.
They really ought to rename this "TooGlo", because the illumination system lights up the entire inside of the scope tube, not just the reticle! Mounting the scope with proper eye relief so you don't see the tube walls only helps a little, as the back-glow inside the scope is still very noticeable. This was not just a problem with one unit, but the same for six other units they had in the store... We checked! Some individual scopes were worse than others, so it was worth checking all they had in stock.
The other big problem was internal contamination. In checking this batch of scopes, I noticed varying amounts of dust, fibers, and even a human hair inside them. This was made all the more obvious by the internal glow problem.
On the positive side, as long as you aren't using more than the minimum brightness level for the reticle, it is still usable, and most of the time I expect to leave it turned down or OFF anyway. The elevation and windage adjustments are easy, with finger-tip controls rather than needing a tool or coin, and if the included rings will work for you, the locking screws are easy to use as well.
This is not a scope I'd recommend ordering on-line as the varying quality problems I've seen really means you need to personally check the individual unit you may purchase.

This is third scope I tried on my Barnett Jakel crossbow and it has been wonderful. Holds zero and is great value for the money.

I like it so far
After I sighted in this scope it seems to working fine and holding zero. The turrents were a little hard to turn, had to use pliers. The true test will come when I go Hunting. The lighted recticle realy helps.
