Leupold’s New SX Spotting Scopes – High Performance & Value
BEAVERTON, Ore. –-(Ammoland.com)- Products of Leupold’s Synergy Project Team, the new SX-1 Ventana and SX-2 Kenai spotting scopes offer high magnification, versatility and optical quality for various hunting/shooting applications and budgets.
The SX-1 Ventana comes in two magnification ranges – 15-45x60mm and 20-60x80mm – with the option of either a straight or 45-degree angled eyepiece offered for each model. Available in straight or angled eyepiece models, the SX-2 Kenai provides multiple options to suit user needs. The Kenai has a premium 80mm High Definition (HD) objective lens, and comes packaged with a 30x fixed wide-angle eyepiece and a 25-60x variable eyepiece.
Both the SX-1 Ventana and SX-2 Kenai are also available in a kit that includes a hard-side carrying case, soft case and compact adjustable tripod.
“Our new SX spotting scopes feature a distinctive, stylish and easy-to-handle ergonomic design, which resulted from the Synergy Project Team’s work,” said Pat Mundy, communications manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Consisting of more than 20 designers, engineers, production personnel and quality control specialists, the team has devoted thousands of hours to producing the best possible line of spotting scopes and binoculars, and making it uniquely Leupold.”
The extreme magnification range of both SX-1 Ventana models provides versatility for various hunting situations, from viewing big game across open prairie to spotting varmints at long range. The SX-2 Kenai’s wide-angle eyepiece allows the user to see the whole field, while the variable eyepiece adds flexibility.
Both the SX-1 Ventana and SX-2 Kenai are designed to deliver a sight picture with outstanding detail and clarity at all practical distances, even at the highest magnification levels. The SX-2 Kenai’s 80mm HD objective lens enhances color fidelity, image brightness and overall picture resolution, making it especially useful for spotting game in the field or targets at the range from dawn to dusk. Also serving to enhance image quality are the SX-1 Ventana’s Multicoat 4® Lens System, and the SX-2 Kenai’s BAK4 prisms and fully multi-coated lenses.
Built for rugged use in the field, both of the new spotting scopes are nitrogen filled to make them waterproof and fog proof. Although tough, the SX-2 Kenai’s magnesium body is lightweight and has a balanced design that serves to keep the spotter steady and stable when viewing on a tripod.
Other features common to both the SX-1 Ventana and SX-2 Kenai:
o Knurling on the body in key locations allows for an easy grip and operation, even with gloved hands
o A retractable lens shade helps when viewing in low-angle sunlight or high-glare conditions, and provides cover against rain or snow
o Twist-up eyecups and ample eye relief allow comfortable viewing for extended periods, even with eyeglasses
SX-1 Ventana and SX-2 Kenai spotting scopes are covered by Leupold’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. The SX-1 Ventana has a black body, while the SX-2 Kenai is gray and black.
