Product Review: Swarovski ATX 95

July 15, 2015

I recently upgraded from the Swarovski 20-60×65 Non HD to the ATX 95 HD and WOW what a difference. This thing is unbelievable! It’s extremely clear and sharp, and the field of view is impressive, even on a higher power. You can get three different objectives for it with the 95mm being the biggest. If your concerned about shedding every ounce possible you could go with the 65 or 80mm objectives, but with less than a pound difference in all three, I’d just tough it out and go with the 95. There’s no telling how much walking it’ll save you by being able to judge animals at ranges and in conditions you never thought possible. With a retail price tag of just under $5,000, it’s not for everyone, but if your a guide, outfitter, or serious about having the absolute best gear you can get your hands on, this is defiantly worth looking into!

My Bio

Zach Knowles is a professional outfitter and guide as well as doing contract camera work for an outdoor television show in some of the most extreme destinations anywhere in the world. He thrives in the harsh places and isn't afraid to take on any challenge in any terrain. Zach’s family has been in the hunting and outfitting business since he was a small child and he spent a lot of his young years in Saskatchewan where his father outfitted 70+ deer and bear hunts a year. At 12 years old Zach harvested an elk, mule deer, and antelope on a trip to Wyoming and it was then that his love of the mountains and western hunting was born. Since then he has gone on to guide and harvest many more animals from Alaska to Mexico, to the Middle East. He owns and operates Xtreme Outfitters, running 60+ whitetail, mule deer, mountain lion, and sheep hunts a year. When he’s not guiding or hunting for himself, you'll find him in the team roping arena or at the ranch taking care of his commercial cow herd.
