What do you guys that sell and have experience with multiple brands think about the features with these new Burris Thermals?

Is is new material or same old stuff?

Looks like new stuff but if you're looking for a deal, look elsewhere. They're not cost-leaders, for sure!

Well MSRP is always higher than what dealers actually sell them for

In most cases, yes.

WHAT IS SHOULD HAVE SAID WAS It looks like they don't have any entry or lower-level models to compete in the $1000-2500 range. They waded right into the middle of the fray in the $3000-5000 range. Good for them, I hope the products are solid.
