Executing technical, long-range shots requires a riflescope with application-specific features and rock-solid build quality to ensure accurate, reliable, and repeatable performance every time you squeeze the trigger. The all-new Strike Eagle riflescopes from Vortex boast those features in a trim, lightweight, durable package. The incredibly versatile 6X zoom range lets shooters engage targets from intermediate to extended ranges. An XD optical system, using lenses fully multicoated with antireflective coatings, delivers crisp, bright images.
Glass-etched, second-focal-plane reticles give detailed MOA-based hold points when shooting off the reticle, yet remain visually clean for optimal viewing. The fast-focus eyepiece adjusts easily, guaranteeing the reticle always appears sharp.
Built on a 30mm, single-piece, anodized, aircraft-grade aluminum tube, these scopes offer an impressive 120 MOA (3-18x44) and 85 MOA (4-24x50) of elevation travel. Exposed laser-etched turrets are easily accessible, feature a zeroreset, and track true. The illumination dial is integrated into the left side parallax/side focus adjustment knob. O-ring sealed and nitrogen gas purged for waterproof, fogproof performance.
MSRP: 3-18x44 – $599.99; 4-24x50 – $699.99

Leupold & Stevens, Inc. has introduced the VX-Freedom line, part of a new series of riflescopes that deliver relentless reliability and elite optical performance at a price point that’s impossible to disagree with, especially given that the line is designed, machined, and assembled in the United States.
The VX-Freedom series delivers excellent performance in low-light situations and is exceptional at glare management, thanks to the proprietary Leupold Twilight Light Management System. A combination of lens coatings and physical design elements in the riflescope itself, the Twilight Light Management System helps hunters make the most of low-light conditions found at dawn and dusk. Military spec lens coatings provide abrasion resistance, protecting the riflescope in the most challenging terrain. An ergonomically advanced power selector ring is low-profile, but it provides exceptional grip and ease of use, even in the cold, wet, or when wearing gloves.
The VX-Freedom will initially be available in some of the industry’s most popular magnification ranges, such as 1.5-4x20, 2-7x33, 3-9x40, 3-9x50, and 4-12x40. All VX-Freedom models offer second focal plane reticles and one-inch maintubes. The series will support muzzleloader, rimfire, and centerfire options for consumers. Duplex, Pig-Plex, and the new Rimfire MOA, Tri-MOA, and UltimateSlam reticles will be available.

The New Flatline Stabilizer features Mathews’ exclusive dampening technology in a new EHS Nano configuration for added vibration dampening and enhanced stabilization. The EHS Nano is paired with a high modulus carbon fiber rod and precision-machined end cap weights to ensure ultimate rigidity, while allowing you to control the amount of added weight. The Flatline Stabilizer comes in six different finishes and in 6" and 8" versions.
The 2018 TRIAX is highly maneuverable, deadly accurate, and the quietest, most vibration-free bow Mathews has ever built. It operates off of a 28" ATA platform with a 6" brace height and is powered by the award-winning, highly efficient, and extremely accurate Crosscentric™ Cam system, producing speeds up to 343 fps.
The TRIAX features new 3D Damping Technology that works to control the three perceived axes of vibration stemming from the point of contact. The design and location of the new Enhanced Harmonic Stabilizer (EHS) diminishes all three paths of that residual vibration, drastically reducing post-shot noise and virtually eliminating felt recoil. This new location also transfers weight in front of and below the grip for a lower center of gravity, resulting in increased stability and easier aiming.
MSRP: Flatline Stabilizer - $139.99 | TRIAX - $1,099
