    Thermal Helion XP28 (2018)

    Near New
    RRP = 6699$

    This is the high resolution model with exec clarity and definition
    The advantage with the XP28 over the XP30 or XP50 is FOV
    Better for close in observation (like cut-over or scrub covered regen etc)
    Yet it still performs awesomely at distance.
    Priced to sell but not in a hurry so price is firm.
    Was going to upgrade but I just don't really have a use for a thermal of this quality.


    Comes with full kit
    More details PM me



    $5000

    And being an XP model you can swap the lens out for a bigger one if you want.

    I use an XP 50 a lot and its excellent but the 28mm lens would be much better in the bush and for spotlighting possums with the wider field of view

    Good price

    Yes - you are exactly right
    Can interchange Lenses and this XP28 is "in my opinion" best overall unit with its fantastic field of view
    For example - Possums (at $130 per kg now) this is so much easier than the XP38 and XP50 (both I have used also)
    So after having the choice of the 3 XP Handhelds - this XP28 was my pick of the bunch

    Will mention to cockie mates about this - good price what !!

    Possum fur would be a by-product to the use of the unit - over Deer which most buy/use them for

    I have a mate using one of these for Possum to help add to his pension
    He is glad he bought it when he had the money from matrimonial settlement and now uses it for added income - will see him out are his exact words :-)
    The high octane he drinks could prove correct :-(
