    I own an Aztec Emerald 5.5x25x50 FFP, been using it about a month now so far I’m liking it very much. Have taken starlings from 15 to 70 yards, rats out to 55 yards. Used during the day and at night, where the illuminated reticle really shines. I’ve taken pests at all the magnification levels up to 25x. The reticle is uncluttered, and gives and excellent look at the target. The Christmas tree has dots at 2, 4, 6, and 8 MOA and are visible at 5.5x with illumination on, so you can use holdovers at this low setting depending on lighting conditions. Not a direct comparison to the Midas Tac… Just one guys experience.

    I personally prefer the Midas Tac . It's not like a HUGE difference, but the Athlon has better glass thru the power range .

    I have the Midas TAC 6-24 and prefer it to some of my scopes costing twice as much. But I have not played with an Aztec

    Vortex makes great scope as I have several. I just never thought of putting a Vortex scope on a air rifle where shots are under 100 yards. I do have a Aztec 5.5×25 on my Redwolf..for about the same money I could have bought. The Diamond back tactile 6×24…live and learn…

    Midas Tac is very clear and crisp, the HD glass is very bright and sharp. Would highly recommend it.

    aint the reticle too small at lower magnifications?

    Reticle is easily seen through out the magnification range.

    Can anyone simply describe the main differences in the various models of Athlon scopes?  Agos, Midas, Helios, WTF, it's all Greek to me.  I am assuming that the Midas Tac and the Midas BTR have the same quality glass, but the main difference is focal plane.  Am I interpreting that correctly?

    Bought a Midas Tac in December. Like it so much I bought another last week. Both are 6-24×50 mil-mil.

    Thanks Joe for the reviews.
