North Chesterfield, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- Carl Zeiss Sports Optics; the world's leading manufacturer in high performance sports optics, is pleased to announce the TERRA 3X 2-7×32 XB75 crossbow scope has won Crossbow Magazine’s “Reader’s Choice” Award for “Best Crossbow Optic”.
“To win such a prestigious award in the first year of its launch is simply incredible,” said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “ZEISS offers the best value for superior optics – period. The XB75 is a perfect example of this. Superior light transmission means that you don’t need illumination and our patented ballistic reticle lets crossbow hunters shoot distances up to 75 yards with confidence, even in the lowest of light conditions.”
The TERRA XB75 2-7×32 features all the benefits of German engineering and performance that you've come to expect from ZEISS, including uncompromising optical performance, all in a lightweight, extremely rugged, compact 1″ design. The XB75 features MC anti-reflective coatings to produce bright, high-contrast images eliminating the need for an illuminated reticle. Now you can hunt harder and longer by being able to stay on stand when the final rays of light are being squeezed out of the day. The patented technology of the XB75’s reticle provides the ability to shoot distances up to 75 yards in 2 ½ half yard increments. The TERRA XB75 is backed by the Carl Zeiss U.S. Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
“Carl Zeiss Sports Optics has raised the industry standard in crossbow optics,” said Todd Bromley, Crossbow Magazine editor. “The impact they've had on the crossbow community with their first offering is nothing short of amazing. The XB75 is a game changer on all levels. It's refreshing to see crossbow hunters demanding better equipment and manufacturers like ZEISS stepping up to meet those demands.”
