Cons of the Simmons 8-Point Truflex:
We have noticed that the Truflex lenses are a bit blurry especially when compared next to its Bushnell 3200 and 4200 siblings (though those units are a bit more expensive than this one). While the adjustments are consistent on the scope, some users feel the it isn’t durable for long term use, though we are not sure about this as we have only used it for a while. At the same time, it’s noted to track game very poorly at times.
In a nutshell, the 8-Point Truflex from Simmons is a quality product worth looking into. If you’re on a budget and you want a good riflescope that boasts a number of features, then you can’t go wrong with this Simmons model.
