    Default Do you mark your glass??

    Do you guys mark the glass in your scope? Until now, I have never thought it was a big deal but I took my glass out last night and cleaned it and just put it back in and screwed it tight. Went to shoot today and was not even close to the X!! So I guess I will put a mark on the scope now! I thought I was going nuts or something came loose until I remembered that I cleaned the glass...I was even blaming the finger sling that I was trying to get used to tonight!

    It became a habit to put the lens back in the same especially when using dots some lenses will have a color code mark on the outer most edge and others I will use the laser etched power mark on the lens the 4x for example

    Does that have to do with not having "optically centered glass" ?

    I do not have that issue at all. Stinks that you do though...

    I dunno, but from what I am told a lot of lenses have this issue and that most of the pros mark their lens in some manner I don't remember having this problem with my other lens either and I am quite certain I cleaned it a couple times...

    Yes! If your lens is not optically centered where you percieve the target will move if you move your lens. That is why we hand center and verify every lens we make. bring your lens to our booth at the IBO shoots and we will find the center of your lens free.

    have heard good things about archery optics, I don't have any lenses from them, but Im sure I will at some time or another. I do have a lot of other types of lenses, the only one that I do not have that issue with is the swarovsky. Was I just lucky with this one? I have eight different lenses, CBE, HTM, viper . Some come close to the zero , and some are quite far off. I do mark them, and they still do not come back perfect. And we all know, perfect is what we want. Not close. Good luck

    That would rock, but I won't be at any IBO shoots

    I could use another true-spot style scope though if you make those yet!
