A decisive review of the pulsar Axion 2 LRF thermal spotter scope with integrated laser range-finder (XQ35 vs XG35 vs XQ38):
- Pulsar Neck Strap – single point (Essential – you must have this!)
We recommend: never use your Axion or Helion handheld thermal spotter scope without a neck strap! If you rely on the case supplied with the device, you risk dropping the device every time the unit is outside its case. As well as keeping your hands free when needed, this strap prevents the device falling onto the ground.
