    Element helix

    Not exactly a review , But i picked one up today "ELEMENT HELIX" after looking at all the top end scopes , disappointed with Bushnell compared to my old 6500 elite's , Nearly got a vortex @ 660 , but picked up one on the recommendation of the gun shop saying he hadn't had any problems from the ones he had sold , far from it , And i was very surprised after i pulled my face at the made in china label how clear the glass was all feels solid , stainless mechanics in the turrets not cheap brass very positive and precise , all you would find on a mid to high end scope and @ 340 , felt well worth a try . quick google back home and found good reviews , a good vid or 2 on youtube . time will tell i guess . tried before in very low light and very good .

    well am after getting one of the element scopes but am have a nightmare trying to decide on what to go for the Helix or the titan and then am going to have to spend another 100ish on a set of 34mm mounts will it be worth it compared to the 330 price of the helix

    Helix

    The Helix has second focal plane and the other one you decribe has ffp that there is a big difference and the price is more

    Titan

    I first ordered the Titan, it was a quality scope but massive and very heavy , I exchanged it at the shop for a Helix and glad I did. The Titan would be a great range or static scope , but not for me as I stalk with mine and do some prone shots. The Helix is also accurate of the mil dots at 12 and 24 mag and dial able on the turrets which seems accurate.

    You should be wel pleased with it, I have two of them SFP clean ret & FFP dirty ret not let me down over the last 18months, really clear glass & what about the packaging superb, I also have a Nexus (Jap) class @ over a grand, bit of a let down compared to the Helix

    Enjoy

    Hi

    Go for the Helix buddy brilliant performer, the Titan is okay except heavier & add the cost of the 34mm rings & it does not add up

    I had a Helix SFP really good scope with none fussy reticle and felt well made. Plus a no quible warrenty.
    Sold it on just to get a higher mag scope for FT no other reason.
