Don't let distance be an obstacle when looking for something outdoors, instead see clearly at a distance using this rugged spotting scope from Barska. The scope features a 30-90x magnification ability, allowing you to spot far off objects with ease....more
I have several Barska products and find all of them to be of excellent quality. They are not necessarily "inexpensive", but they are affordable and provide excellent value for the money. There are certainly many optics available, at much higher prices, but is it always necessary to purchase something because of its higher price? Doesn't necessarily make it any better, just more costly.

The scope itself is great, however, the mechanism that connects to the bottom of the scope to allow a quick connect to the tripod is poorly designed. The quick connect attached to the tripod wiggles about 1/16 of an inch side to side and sighting at 400 yards is a problem. I was able to fix it so it locks tightly using some rubber bands. I am sure Overstock would have let me return it but for the price I paid I will keep it.
We wanted something to view birds and other animals on the march and shore near our home. Although it was initially difficult to set up, and the manual is pretty worthless, the optics seem very good for the price point. It is large and heavy, so needs a heavy duty tripod to support the scope, and reduce shaking.
Overall we are very pleased.

Does the Barska 30-90x100 WP Gladiator have a built-in hood that pulls out at the objective lens end to help stop extraneous light from entering through the objective lens causing glare and is it threaded so a clear or polarized filter could be installed in the front for protection of the objective lens?spotter53 on Sep 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It does have a built-in, extendable sunshade, and it does not appear to be threaded in the photo. We are, however, researching this to provide you an accurate answer as soon as possible.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 17, 2012
Weight seems an important spec to have in all spotting scopes, which are often carried on hikes or hunting trips.mongoose2 on Jun 9, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The shipping weight of eight pounds, which is very close to the actual weight of the item.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 13, 2012
I think it is better used as a stationary scope in our outside home, etc., and moved only short distances due to size and weight.serpentine1 on Apr 9, 2013
