LOL, Wraith isn't a thermal and it doesn't cost anywhere near $1500.

And here all along I thought you were smart enough to read. There is no worthwhile $1500 thermal, I’ll call it an honorable mention

I’m looking forward to seeing the new AGM Adder TS50 -384 when it comes out. Supposed to be $3k. I bought the rattler TS35 and the picture was impressive. Had issues getting it sighted in though…. Seemed like I was chasing my tail. Each “click” was moving it 4”-6” and I went through a ton of ammo and time messing with it, so I sent it back. (Later heard they fixed that issue with firmware update confused2). We shall see

$ 1500 for a worthwhile thermal

Hogster Stimulus

It’s VERY capable inside of 100 yards ON STATIC targets meaning it isn’t going to serve you well for runners

That's funny as I realized from your post that you weren't smart enough to do math.

There are just way too many variables to really say what's "best" since what's best for me, isn't necessarily best for you. But, regardless, every year Hans and I try to offer up our personal picks for the best optics in each price category and I'll be the first to say, many of the optics that don't get picked are just as capable and actually BETTER for certain situations.

What's funny is you couldn't read "(I know it isn't a thermal)".

Get a really good one. I know a great set up for the maiden slaughter.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Torn between the I-Ray Bravo and the Super Hogster. Lots of good reviews on both.

I need a co-pilot... You need one too!

The Super Hogster is about to get some updates the new model will be the “A-3” version

Better screen, more image settings, LaRue mount also available.

I’d sit tight another month and look to see how the initial reviews of the A3
Super Hogster go….

Thanks for the heads up Pig Popper.

After getting researching, and being provided with some info, it looks as if they two are VERY similar. So I might as well save a couple hundred bucks and go with the Super Hogster.

Except, I don't see that it has a magnetic cable port like the Bravo does.

$20‐25 and you can buy a magnetic USB plugs and cables set as I did for the Super Yoter.[quote][/quote]. That is what is did.
