What do yall think? Will it be the ultimate hybrid hunting/tactical scope or just a bunch of hype?

No.

6X is too high of a low end for me. I Mule deer hunted with a 6-24X Viper, and sold it. Now I'm trying a 3-15X Burris, and am really liking the 3X on the low end for snap shot scenarios. But all of them are too heavy for a strictly hunting scope. I carry target scopes hunting, and live with it. One day "the" dual purpose scope will be made, or maybe it has. But I've not used it yet.

I'd bet the glass is better.

I had a Vortex gen ii I used for hunting last year and I liked it a lot but it is heavy. Seems losing 20 oz and only 3x on the top end will work well for my situation. Then again my closest shot is around 200 yards so 6x min isnt to bad for me. If they can maintain the quality and durability it should probably be the closest thing out there.
