Yukon EXELON 3x50 or Pulsar RECON 550?

Postby Signifer on Mon Oct 17, 2011 6:02 am

Hi, I'm searching a monocular for night surveillance. I'm considering the Pulsar 550 and the Yukon Exelon. Which of these do you recommend?

Thanks in advance. :wink:

Biggest difference will be a traditional intensifier tube in the Exelon compared to the digital night vision in the Pulsar. I favor digital units over Gen 1 devices. You will get a further detection and recognition range. I also have noticed a sharper image in digital units over Gen 1. Trade off is digital will use more batteries and faster, usually 4-8 AA batteries and run them down about 25%-30% faster. Even still, I still would opt for a digital over a Gen 1 intensifier tube NV unit.
