You don’t seriously expect me to publish Leupold’s presser about their VX-3i scope with its Twilight Max Light Management System without making a vampire joke, do you? Does it make game sparkle in the sunlight? What do they want for it? Blood? OK, seriously, we’re now in a new age of “active optics.” For hunters who want to explore this brave new world, the embedded presentation on Leupold Light Management [after the jump] isn’t heavy reading. Suffice it say, learn to shoot with iron sights first, then go all optically operational. Because batteries and bashing about can lead to a blackout and you want that buck, ballistically . . .
Leupold changed the conversation from light “gathering” to light transmission, now the optics experts are changing the conversation to light management. Transmission is still a key component, but it’s not the only component.
The VX-3i is the scope that will have you hunting earlier and hunting longer than ever, all thanks to its new Twilight Max Light Management System. Light management, simply put, is a triad of performance; all three elements must be managed perfectly to let you see deeper into the shadows than ever before. Attached are a few resources to help you better understand light management and why it’s a superior way to design optics.
