Bushnell Elite 15-45x60 Scope and possibly Manfrotto 785B Tripod. (Not sure that I want to sell the tripod just yet)

I got the scope brand new a few years ago and have taken really good care of it. The glass is literally flawless. It's a good scope and has seen some monster bucks and bulls. The size and weight are really convenient. The only thing that keeps it from looking brand new is that there is a little bit of buildup on the body from use with sweaty dirty hands. Comes with a case and both objective and ocular lense covers. Below is a link to a new one so you can look at specs and reviews.


$300 for the scope.

The tripod is a Manfrotto 785B. It's lighter than the Leupold Compact Tripod, and it extends to standing height. This isn't one of those cheapo lightweight thin aluminum deals that bends real easy. It's a pretty damn good tripod which is why I'm not sure I want to sell it. The only thing I don't love about it is that the head isn't really really smooth with pressure on the ball. The right kind of grease or other lubricant might solve that but I'm not sure. The tripod retails for about $100 and mine is in brand new condition. If your interested make an offer and I will decide. Below is a link to the tripod.

Todd Great deal on the spotter. I would suggest throwing it up on 24hr campfire classifieds. Have had great results lately selling things over there. Lots of traffic.

I am assuming the tripod sold?
