I also have an Athlon Scope, the small "eye box" is legendary on the Athlon series.  Virtually every other scope I have ever looked through has a larger eye box for the same magnification.  So your answer is… any other scope in the universe has a larger eye box.  I have found no other scope with a similar sized or smaller eye box.

Small eye boxes do serve one useful purpose.  A small eye box ensures you will not have parallax error when looking through it.  On the Athlon series, the box gets even tighter at the higher magnifications.  At 32X, it is borderline useless on my sample.
