It is better, but it is way overpriced if you have to actually purchase one as there are comparable models you can get online for much much less. So if you are getting it free, it would definitely be a benefit.
Double Naught, I participated in ATN's offer by writing a review. (I wrote an honest one, BTW) ATN says they will take 6-8 weeks to actually get the illuminator, so while I await its arrival, I thought I'd ask around to see if anyone had actually used one. I can't find much on this model on internet searches. My longest shots are normally less than 150 yards; I have no large, open fields or pastures to hunt. Given that fact, based on your personal experience, what illuminator would you recommend? I'm running the ATN X-Sight II, 3-14.
