The Z6 has been the scope of choice for the hunting professional and shop staff. The Swarovski z8 promises to be this and much more. The Swaro z8 with 4Ai reticle can be shot at 1 power with max illumination for true reflex daylight hunting (both eyes open) and then zoomed in for the longer shots. The Swarovski z8 4A-i reticle can also be dimmed right down for low light situations. Not many illumination modules can do both successfully. Swarovski z8 will become the hunting scope to have.
