    Hi all.
    I am looking into this pard system to use on my foxing rifle, I see they can be a bit fussy with the scopes they work with. Has anyone tried them on the Hawke Endurance range of scopes? They seem to work well on the sidewinder series, so I should imaging that the endurance is not much difference, but don't want to buy one & waste the money if its not a good match.

    There a new model coming running the 007 brains in it. This time it a scope itself, 008. Lads on here should be offering them at the end of the month.

    With bolt on NV they normally like cheaper scopes, less coatings on the lenses etc. I no MTC run good, low mag helps as u can mag the view on the unit. Not the scope, ;) al

    It works fine with my Hawke Vantage, I'm afraid I can't advise ref the Endurance though. As @bigal mentioned I read that 'some' scopes don't work well, could it be they have some IR filtering in their coatings? (pure speculation/guessing on my part). The only other thing is they recommend is the scope being able to focus down to 10M.

    Thanks both. I think the best option for me is try to find someone local enough who has one that will let me attach it to my scope for a look through before I part with the folding for one. :up:

    As pointed out it tends to work better with cheap scopes, I have not found a Hawke yet that doesn't work well with NV. The scopes that don't tend to work as well are Leupold etc, the key is side focus or AO down to 10 yards, that sorts the focus, if your scope doesn't like IR light it will just limit range.

    I have tried 7 different brands with my unit and on all of them it was mainly down to focus. I have tried Simmonds, Leupold, Nikon, Bushnell, Vortex, Hawke and MTC.

    All work well but my Nikon Monarch with px down to 50 yards did not work well but my Nikon with AO down to 10 is excellent with the pard so that's on my Air rifle. I settled with the Bushnell in the end for centre fire as the best at night with unit and good during the day, the Nikon is a better scope in twilight but the Bushnells performance with this unit is amazing, I can clearly see foxes upto 300 yards with it, actually see them not just eye shine.

    Some links to my videos with this unit are in the hunting section.
