Our FlashDot technology lets you activate a bright red dot, precisely at the center of the reticle, when conditions dictate; or turn off the dot completely when conditions change.
In the field, the FlashDot acts much like the front bead on a shotgun, bringing your eye immediately to the target. This is invaluable for quick reaction shots on running game or even charging dangerous game. It is well suited to bright and harsh lighting conditions, with the bright red dot providing a precise, easily seen aim point against the dark body of a moving animal. When the dot is switched off, the regular fine crosshairs remain in view.
While the FlashDot was first conceived for daylight use, our beam splitter now allows a single scope to function as a non-illuminated riflescope under normal conditions; as a FlashDot scope in bright light; and as a fully adjustable illuminated reticle at twilight. This feature, included in some of our Zenith models, results in a single scope that is applicable to any lighting situation the hunter will ever encounter.
A digital chip automatically switches off the power after six hours of non-use. Just in case, an extra battery can be stored under the cover of the windage adjustment turret.
