Kowa TSN 550 Series 55mm Prominar Spotting Scope
Excellent build quality,super packable, quality picture. Small field of view and less forgiving eye relief, but worth the trade off for size and weight if backpacking are your intentions
SandS was one of the first resellers of this new scope. While Kowaâ€™s price tag made me gulp a little, I knew that if I liked this scope it would be my last. This little guy is incredible for a 55mm scope. I carried it for miles on a camping trip in Ontario. Zoomed out to its max still provides a crystal clear image, though eyeglass wearers might find the eye relief at max zoom a bit tedious. I donâ€™t wear glasses and eye relief was no problem.
I highly recommend this scope.
I own the 880 Prominar Kowa spotting scope so I am not surprised at the quality of this little scope. However I must say it exceeded even my expectations. Thanks Kowa and thanks S&S for offering this great product. I only wish I could find a good quality packable cover for this great scope
