    So I have an Element Helix, and I accidentally scratched the back with my bracelet, I try high-end pictures of these scopes, just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to cover the scratches so I am not constantly photoshopping a scratch out lol. I just can't seem to find a matching matte-ink / paint/tape anything. 

     

    I know the pic may look a little pixilated but im like 300x zoomed in to show the scratch lol

    thats not bad .. any thing you do to it will likely make it worse .. what you could possibly do is acquire a small piece of cf texture vinyl wrap and put it over it, that might look tight tight …

    Yeah, it's not bad but it appears when I'm editing photos a little brighter maybe it's just me that notices more than anyone else can I know it's there lol. But okay, that's a good idea, I do have a spare old scope with the same color I can test on.

    That is a bummer, but don't forget the old saying: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"!

    I think we are all a bit overly OCD on the nicks and scratches when we first do them.  As time goes on hopefully we notice them less.  You can put a sticker over it to hide it or paint it a bright color so it stands out more and then you will know it is yours when you glance at it.  Could be time to camo tape your scope too.  If you are and artist you could scratch a little bicycle going down the hill or a hunting scene where  the scratch is a mountain.

    Lots of ways of looking at things.

    I am thinking about buying a element scope. What model is it and how do you like it?

    I have a titan and the Helix and they are really nice, I have the SFP Helix which is awesome for my airguns and rifle if needed, and I have the Titan for my firearms. Overall great scopes. The titan is awesome especially in low light because of the illumination, its a little long but I don't mind at all. The Helix was just a great economical scope, I got it thinking I might just get a little rough hunting and it does scratch kinda easy as shown above buttt well worth the investment. I have a like 3-year-old Hawke sidewinder I replaced and the Titan and helix were def. worth the switch.

    Maybe try some of that car "Remove a Scratch" stuff??

    I have no idea if it'll work but it seems like it should?

    Go to Amazon and order some adhesive backed carbon fiber vinyl wrap. It will look really cool and if you want the Element logo to show, cut the piece short enough to leave window to show that part and cover the rest.
