my personal opinion is that it's a great scope, probably one of the best I've seen in the inexpensive scope range, If I had to compare it I'd say it compares to the Nikon Prostaff 3-9 x 40 or the Buckmasters 3-9 x 40
Now keep in mind I'm a Vermont hunter and in the areas I hunt the average Scope range at my hunting spots could be anywhere from 0 out to about 200 yards It would be very rare for me to take shots any further but the Traditions scope is a one piece tube, mutlicoated lenses are crisp and clear even under low light, fogproof, waterproof & shockproof,,, adjustments are 1/4" inch MOA windage and elevation.
Now if you're looking for a scope for extended ranges I'd say invest more money and go with something else but if long range shots are rare for you I don't think this scope would let anyone down...
