I want a "good" FF (not reducer/ flattener) for my new AT115. The AT's are always well recommended....but they are always out of stock. I've read many good reports about the HoTech SCA.

Has anyone used both, that can give a good comparison.?

Hey Dave,

 

I have heard that the Hotech flattener works pretty well. Stellarvue makes some decent flatteners you may want to look into as well.
