Spotty Scope: Barska Colorado 15-40×50

with No Comments

The Barska Colorado is a spotty scope instead of a spotting scope (see what I did there). It boasts a nice list of specs and a rugged appearance for a low, low price of $35 but it is in a word: disappointing. Well, there are many other words you can use to describe it, many comprising of four letters.

Amazon reviewers gave it an average of 3.9 stars out of 5 with almost half of its reviewers giving it 5 stars?! These reviewers either have never looked through another spotting scope or are awaiting cataract surgery. There is one positive thing I have to say about this scope: I can return it.
