Well Friday I called him and he still had it so since I had the time why not!
I'm no stranger to Coulter dobs I have a 8 which I love (Stumpy) and I have looked through many 13"s and 17.5" but these optics have always been transplanted into truss structures, I've never seen a factory behemoth unit until now.
I was not prepared. I knew I was going to bring it home but didn't take nearly enough stuff out of my van! and even though we disassembled to small pieces the pieces are Jurassic dinosaur size!
