Looks like he had a real positive experience with his BDX system :sry:  I've set up two BDX systems for friends and I definitely won't ever be buying one.

Karl,  What are the things you don't like about the BDX system?

Do tell, I've been interested in the system and considering buying.

Glass is really terrible. Reticle is SUPER thick. Reticle is just a duplex so no windage markings. A "long range" scope with no way to hold for wind is useless in my opinion. Biggest issue is they wouldnt consistently link. When they did, they would hit good but I experienced about a 30% failure rate on giving you an aim point. Also they are illegal in Idaho as of the 2019 season. I think they cut too many corners to release these things at a competitive price point. I'm a sig fan and my kilo2400 is the best money I have ever spent on gear but the BDX system really misses the mark  :twocents:

Ok.  Thanks for the input.  Was just starting to look into this system.

Thanks. Maybe I'll just get a non bdx rangefinder instead of the system. That's mainly what I was looking for (second rf) to be honest.
