For more than 65 years, Bushnell has been an industry leader in high-performance hunting and shooting optics, and at the 2017 NRA Show, they announced a new line of high-quality, performance-driven riflescopes and binoculars. The new Engage series represents the latest evolution in Bushnell optics.
Good Glass at a Great Price
Engage scopes and binos feature fully multi-coated glass that captures bright, clear images while preventing glare and actively repelling water, oil, dust and debris. The new EXO Barrier is the best protective lens coating‑technology Bushnell has ever developed. Added at the end of the coating process, EXO Barrier molecularly bonds to the lens and fills microscopic pores in the glass. The result is an ultra-slick coating that repels anything you’ll encounter in the field. Rain, snow, fingerprints and dirt won’t stick. Plus, the bonded coating won’t fade over time, or from normal wear and tear.
Engage riflescopes have upgraded features and a brand new Deploy MOA reticle that offers 1-MOA windage and elevation hashmarks. Dialing in these scopes is easier than ever with several configurations featuring Toolless Zero Reset Locking Turrets.
Available in nine configurations from 2-7x36mm up to 6-24x50mm, all Engage riflescopes feature Butler Creek Flip Caps (above), the new Deploy MOA Reticle (below) and Bushnell’s new Ironclad Warranty. Five models feature a 1-inch tube and low-profile, capped elevation and windage turrets. An additional four models have rugged 30mm tubes and the new Toolless Zero Reset Locking Turrets. Street prices on the new Engage riflescopes will likely range from $150 to $450, depending on size. The minimum advertised price of the popular 3-9×40 is only $150; nice!
Engage also includes premium binoculars. Like the riflescopes, Engage binoculars are backed with the all-weather assurance of Bushnell’s exclusive EXO Barrier that repels dirt, debris, oil and moisture.
With four configurations (8×42; 10×42; 10×50; 12×50), these binos feature fully multi-coated optics to offer maximum brightness and clarity, and a lightweight and rugged chassis. ED Prime Glass ensures razor-sharp images while the PC-3 Phase Coating enhances resolution and contrast. Street prices on the new Engage binos will likely range from $350 to $410, depending on size.
