Things I liked: I have three FFP scopes: this Athlon, an Aztec Emerald and a Cabelas. The problem that I see with FFP is that you have many marks in reticle and the adjusting in the objective should be now precise, making it very difficult to get a fast glance and shot. This Athlon is the ONLY one thatnInwoukd buy it again. The reticle is the easiest one and keeps perfectly the zero.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: Reliable.
Things I liked: I have used it once and and it was clear. 10 yds to infinity side focus parallax adjustment. The elevation and windage adjustment were precise.
Things I would have changed: I am not sure how much I like the retical as it is hard to stay on the correct mark as it has so many marks. I was not too successful at ranging with the parallax as it was hard to repeat the same reading.
Things I liked: Solid all-around excellent scope for the money. If you are looking for an scope you won't every have to upgrade (buy once, cry once), get this one. The construction is solid, the turrets are solid, the glass is clear. I compared this side-by-side with the Hawke 4-16x44 Airmax 30 SF Compact Riflescope and the Athlon is WITHOUT QUESTION a better scope, and it is actually a few dollars cheaper!
Things I would have changed: The only criticism is the illumination. At highest power, it is still not very bright, but it is more than adequate for dusk/low light shooting.
What others should know: Added bonus: there is no zero stop and the turrets are not capped, but plastic shim washers are included. Shoot, set zero, take off knob to reset turret, install appropriate shims, re-install turret.... now you have a zero stop!
