This scope was a big investment for me. I spent 2 years vacillating back and forth, playing with other scopes, and evaluating all options before pulling the trigger. I’m happy I did. Some products don't live up to the hype - this one does. I should have just brought the Kowa home years ago. Extremely happy.
This superb spotter hardly needs another five-star review, but here goes. I’ve used a series of Kowa scopes since 1984 - TS1 was the first, as I recall. This TSN-883 is surely the best of all. Before buying this one I took every opportunity to ask owners of other brands at my local club, and compare them against each other. Examination of splinters on the 200 yard target boards is most revealing! Without going through all the others, the Kowa proved superior in almost every way. A reader of this review can do the same thing... or just go directly to Rob at S&S Archery and save both the time and money. ~JLM
I live and hunt here in Montana and I need a high quality spotting scope as we are looking out at long distances. I will put my Kowa TSN 880 up against any other spotting scope on the market. Crystal clear and ergonomically great. I now own two Kowa scopes the 880 and the Prominar 55 mm. They are the best.
