1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  4. PLEASE READ
    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  6. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

So Who Else Is Interested In The New Pard Fusion?

Discussion in 'Night Vision Optics and Illumination' started by Russ Douglas, Oct 23, 2019.

    I first heard about the PARD Fusion a few months ago and am really keen to see how the world looks through the viewfinder. I see it's previously been posted about on the NV forum following IWA earlier this year.

    For those unaware imagine a scope just slightly bigger / heavier than an PARD008LRF, with all that includes plus an extra objective lens - for built-in Thermal spotting / aiming capability. :thumb::)
    There's also a 'Fusion' button, which will overlay the Thermal image (in whatever colour palette is chosen) -over the daytime (colour) or nighttime (B&W) imagery.

    Images courtesy of customriflescopes.com (UK PARD service agents), custom mount shown not PARD standard:

    upload_2019-10-23_9-1-35.png larger rear view here.
    upload_2019-10-23_9-2-36.png larger side view here.

    Bruce (NV guru @Phoenix over on the NV forum) explained due to the sensor cell sizes & lens sizes the Thermal image won't be full HD like the optical/IR day & night imagery. But it'll be awesome to have everything in one package - and all on one display, including the live ranges to your targets on-screen too -of course.

    Don't know the expected £RRP yet but as it's a Thermal scope (as well as day & night HD, LRF and HD recording), it'll sadly be well out of my price range. I love that this new tech combines several existing ideas into one compact package, and brings the price down considerably too. :thumb:

    Being a 100% independent reviewer I'm just hoping to get to borrow it to review and report-on for you, various magazines and for YouTube, fingers crossed; I will keep you posted.
    Cheers. Russ

    Yup this looks a very worthy of a look leap forward from the outstanding 008

    just extra range finding feature didn’t interest me as it’s easy to add your own LRF

    but this is a whole new unit and concept

    interested :thumb:

    Fair old lump to go on a rifle. Does not look lightweight. Interesting to see the price not that I’d want one as have a Pulsar but I guess there is a market.

    I won't be interested at all, not just because it will be way out of my price range :facepalm: but also not until they change the LRF splash to horizontal.

    Ah for that you need to rotate an add-on LRF and mount it on an 008. Bruce did that for my LRF - video coming soon.

    I did that a long time ago and won't change back to a vertical splash, ever.

    I’ll bet in a few years airgun shooters will be wandering around fields at night wearing ridiculous full face helmets with 3d HUD thermal /night vision projected onto the visor like summat out of space-marines-r-us :laff:

    the rabbits will be throwing themselves under the hover-cars

    oh... hang on...

    Already to be trialled and see if it works with the pard Nv008.
    Fat shark hdmi goggles are currently charged and after a bottle of red on saturday night we will be having a play to see if it works :thumb:

    We were first to come up with the add on HUD screen and now first to go with the FPV goggles set up...not sure if its gonna be of any use whatsoever but we are gonna give it a try and see what it's like :D

    As for the drone then that is more than doable as the tech exists already....would need a hell of an illuminator though and even more of a pilot with a set of huge plums to fly in the dark :D
