I had the 9x for several years, fantastic glass.thanks for the reply and the great info, I have the Alaska Guide Creations for a caring case. I was thinking better glass would help in early morning and late evening. don't think I can hold
11x & 12x without tripod, having hard time hold 10x
I haven't tried the b6, but tried th 9s and 11s in the demo and much preferred the 9s. At far distances I saw more detail with the 9s.Right now, I can't give you a definite stance on my part. It is so smoky here you really can't see well enough for proper evaluation. I have both the 9x45 B2 and the 10x50 B6.
Right now my choice is the 9x45 B2. Above somebody listed the 9x fov at 377'. It actually measures 405'. The fov is poke you in the eye obviously wider with the 9x B2 compared with the 10x B6. What I have been able to do with resolution tells me I can't find a real difference in detail resolution between the two. I'll have an 11`x B2 in hand in a day or two, so I can add some more comments.
The B6 is a heck of a glass, but as of now it has not separated itself from the 9x45 B2.
