Kowa TSN 553 Compact
Backcountry hunters will likely benefit the most from this ultra compact, super clear new option from Iowa! Spotters are somewhat necessary at many points during a hunt, and worth their weight in gold when you actually need them! Imagine hiking over 10 miles deep into a remote western wilderness. Weight is a factor, and you weren’t sure if you wanted to include a spotter in your pack. You glass up what appears to be a good buck over almost two miles away, across a HUGE canyon…Are you going to waste your time getting a closer look, or bust out your compact Kowa spotter and make sure this buck is worth the time and effort? I thought so…
The clarity is where this little workhorse really shines, although we quickly learned of the extreme durability of this product after a tripod mishap! None the worse for wear after a short roll, we just put it back up, and kept glassing!
At a scant 1.7 pounds and complete with the fluorite crystal objectives lens, this scope has ensured a spot in our packs for years to come!
