After thinking about it, I believe my wife has the same scope as Emmet on her Thunderhawk, she loves it. If I remember right, somewhere near the top of one of the lens it say's Hawke, Parker must be using Hawke with the Parker brand on em. The extra batteries come in a two pack, five or ten pack if your real forgetful. Think she has this one.

One scope to stay away from is the Excal Tact-Zone, there's been a lot of problems with em not holding zero. Suppose to be a "newer updated" one released soon. I'm not sure who makes Excalibur's scopes, no one seems to know or is saying.

Some I have read lots of good reviews on the forums are the Redfield Revenge, Nikon Bolt, Hawke XB30, Leupold crossbones. The Redfield Revenge has a built in ranging feature, my string guy uses one an loves it, the Revenge is made in the Philippines.
Only complaint on the Hawke XB30 is the weight, guys say with the mount it's a bit heavy, made in China.
The Nikon Bolt is a short scope with  BDC 60 reticle aiming points out to 60 yards, believe they made in the Phillipines.
Leupold crossbones, is produced in Oregon, I'm a bit prejudiced bout the Leupolds an Redfield's, been using em forever with a problem. 

If you happen to have a extra wad of cash burning a hole in your wallet, check out the VIPER XBR CROSSBOW SCOPE  [biggrin] Very nice!

I'm thinking the 185# would be about right. I could go heavier, but I'm not out impressing the neighbors, plus it offers plenty of KE for what I'm after. You can't make a deer any deader once you place your arrow/bolt. Lol

Speakin of arrows, check out the Arizona Bolt fletching jig, puts a radical helical on your vanes & still fit in the track, works super for Blazer or other short vanes. Pretty reasonable priced also.
