Rated 3 out of 5 by Toothdok50 Worthless Tripod While the optics and functions of the scope are acceptable for the price, the tripod included is awful. Its made of thin aluminum and very cheap, flimsy plastic. It attempts to give you table-top and ground set-up in one device and does neither well. The tripod is just flimsy and you can't get zeroed in on an object. You can adjust and adjust for five minutes and then only get your object slightly centered in the end. The scope vibrates around in the slightest breeze and should you give it the lightest touch, the image bounces around. Simmons could have made this product a LOT better just by pairing it with a simple, table-top tripod instead of the tripod it has with extendable legs and a crank-up stem. The tripod, in a word, is just junk and barely usable in any format. It wouldn't keep a camera stable for a shot at 10 feet, let alone a scope that's zeroed in at 200 yards! I'll keep the scope and retro fit it to a tripod of my own design made of steel. 01/25/2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by USMCDI Simmons Blazer Spotting Scope Let's make one thing perfectly clear here, this is a 59.00 scope with tripod. It would be totally unrealistic to compare this scope to the high end scopes. With that being said, here is my reveiw of this scope. First ditch the tripod, it is extremely unstable. The head assembly of the tripod, where you mount the scope; is poorly made. The slightest vibration will cause the sight picture to jump all over the place. Go out and purchase a good quality camera tripod, the mounts are the same. Now the scope is good, zoom and focus works well. I was able to clearly see my pistol shots at the 25 yard line and my rifle shots at the 50 yard line. I have no dought this scope will perform well at the 100 and 200 yard lines. A good tripod is the key as you need a sturdy platform for the scope. 12/31/2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wizofid Good Scope - Not so Good Tripod I bought this scope for use in sighting in our hunting rifles. It seems to work good for that purpose. Haven't had a chance to do anything else with it, but it's early in the year. The tripod for it is pure junk. I used my camera tripod and it's pretty stable. The eye relief at the higher setting don't work well with my glasses, but I don't need them so much when looking through the scope. I think for the price it's well worth it. Just toss the tripod to begin with. 01/04/2013
Rated 2 out of 5 Decent for the price, but tripod is trash First one had bubbles and other imperfections on an inner lens so it was returned. I actually got the only one in nearby stores, so I had a competitor price match and bought it there. 2nd one I got had a hard time screwing in the tripod mount (store display unit tripod mount was completely stripped out) but once I got it threaded it was OK. Opened up the tripod and one leg was busted... the tripod is literally junk. Replaced tripod with a better one I already had as well as a tabletop tripod for when a full sized is not needed or just too big.Find a good one that's not busted and it's worth the $60 01/21/2013
