These things look awesome!!
Peddler , those things are beasts ! I'm thinking the Kowa site had them listed at 14lbs ! Then you have to lug a monster tripod around to hold them. I'm sure they would be awsome in the field...just so long as someone else carried them for you. Lol. I'm trying to think of a time I would be willing to carry a 20lb glassing rig. The tsn 883 looks like just the ticket though.
