NORTH CHESTERFIELD, Va., August 30, 2012 – The new VICTORY HT 2.5-10×50 riflescope from Carl Zeiss has won Field & Stream magazine’s coveted Best of the Best award. This highly regarded annual awards program recognizes the most innovative and best designed products in the hunting industry each year and the value these innovations bring to hunters.
Field & Stream test-team members rigorously test each item during a process dubbed the “Field & Stream Torture Tests.” Products are shot, bent, driven, dropped, and generally abused. Anything that falters is immediately eliminated. Beyond surviving the torture tests, winning products are ultimately selected based on significance of the innovation, the quality of the design, and the value they bring to outdoorsmen.
Here’s what the Field & Stream experts had to say about the VICTORY HT 2.5-10×50 in their September 2012 issue:
“Due to a slight miscommunication concerning the subzero riflescope testing procedure, we wound up freezing the Zeiss Victory into a 10-pound block of ice—and it survived the ordeal. The aberration-free 30mm HT features a 50mm objective lens, Schott glass, and Zeiss’s T* multicoatings. The second-focal-plane No. 60 duplex reticle utilizes an ultrafine illuminated dot operated by a large knurled side knob that pulls on to light up and dials a wide band of brightness levels. —T.M.”
The new, super-bright 30mm VICTORY HT riflescopes achieve an unprecedented light transmission of near 95% thanks to the state-of-the-art proprietary High Transmission (HT) glass by SCHOTT and enhanced T* multi-layer coatings. The VICTORY HT also comes with one of the most versatile reticles ever invented – Zeiss’ proprietary reticle # 60, featuring the world’s finest illuminated red dot for superior precision.
Available in 1.1-4×24, 1.5-6×42, 2.5-10×50 and 3-12×56 models, these durable high-performance VICTORY HT riflescopes come with Zeiss’ new ASV+ turret for quick ballistic compensation. Each scope has a complete set of ballistic rings for more hunting loads, allowing for easy, fast and accurate target acquisition and distance compensation with a quick turn of the elevation turret.
“We are truly honored to win another Best of the Best award and appreciate Field & Stream’s recognition of our innovations,” said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics. “Zeiss has a long history of optical firsts, and we raised the bar once again with our VICTORY HT line. The tremendous effort it took was worth it knowing that our customers experience maximum brightness and performance from ZEISS optics each and every hunt.”

PISTOL LASER TRAINER
This new laser trainer fits all of the most popular pistol calibers, mounts inside the barrel and has the sound activated switch showing bullet impact with a laser dot. Every time your hammer or striker fires the small laser dot will flash for 100 milli-seconds simulating bullet impact.
This is the next evolution to the LaserLyte line of laser trainers. This model installs from the muzzle of the barrel and fits tight with the use of LaserLyte’s patented arbor and taper system. The system will fit the weapons chambered in 9mm, 40S&W, 45 ACP that have a minimum of a 2 inch barrel. The LT-Pro will also fit calibers 38 special, .380 Auto, 357 Sig, 10 mm and 45 LC.
The training possibilities are expanded with this model because the trainer will not extend past your muzzle more than .25 inches. This nearly flush mounted laser trainer makes it easier to train from the holster, concealment or close quarters. The mounting system will retain the laser firmly in the barrel during any reloading drills. (LaserLyte strongly recommends the use of snap caps)
This is simply the easiest way to train without ammo for any of your pistols with a 2-inch barrel or longer. The popular calibers listed above can be expensive and hard to find for regular practice. This is the most effective laser training system that will meet all your needs.
• Minimum 2-inch barrel required
• Fits calibers: 9mm, 40s&w, .45acp, 38sp, .380 Auto, 357sig, 10mm and 45lc.
• Near flush fitting to muzzle design
• Allows more advanced training scenarios
• Hammer or striker fired laser activation for 100 milli-seconds
• Patented adjustment system
• Length: 2.1 inches
• Minimum diameter: .1 inch
• Maximum Diameter: .5 inch
• Run Time: 3,000 shots • Batteries: 3 x 377
• Activation: Sound of striker or hammer
Mogadore, OH. – Field and Stream magazine has selected TenPoint Crossbow Technologies’ new Turbo XLT II as the winner of their 2012 “Best of the Best Award” in the crossbow category. This is the second straight year TenPoint has received the award. Field and Stream’s “Best of the Best” designations are awarded to new hunting and fishing equipment they select as the top performing and most innovative of the year.
According to Field & Stream magazine, “Three critical factors shot the Turbo XLT II to the winner’s circle. First, the bow was incredibly accurate. Second, it was safe to operate due to an intuitive ambidextrous safety and anti- dry-fire device. Third, the innovative ACUdraw cocking rope (which retracts into the stock, the handles secured by a slick magnet system) was a joy to operate and nearly silent, proof that this is a crossbow for hunters”.
The Turbo XLT II differs from its predecessor in several ways. While it still features a radically compact bow assembly, spanning 13.5-inches from axle-to-axle when cocked, its 11-inch IsoTaper Limbs™ are now double- laminated for improved strength and durability. The bow assembly, fitted with D-75 string and yoked tunable cables powered by NEW MRX™ cams, is mounted on a 7/8″ longer barrel that increases the power stroke to 12.875-inches. This new combination produces a sleek and maneuverable 180-pound crossbow that shoots 345 fps with TenPoint’s NEW Pro Lite™ carbon arrow.
“We are honored that Field & Stream has chosen one of our models for this prestigious award again this year. It’s in our DNA to push our technology and design to higher levels of performance while staying focused on maintaining the highest possible quality,” said TenPoint CEO, Rick Bednar.
The Turbo XLT II comes standard with TenPoint’s 3x Pro-View 2™ Scope and, like all TenPoint crossbows, it features their patented DFI™ (dry-fire-inhibitor) and 3.5-pound PowerTouch™ trigger. Available with or without one of TenPoint’s two patented cocking units, the ACUdraw™ or ACUdraw 50™, the Turbo XLT II is decorated in Realtree APG®.
MAP: $999 with ACUdraw, $899 with ACUdraw 50.
All TenPoint crossbows are USA Owned, Operated, and Manufactured in Mogadore, OH.
