    Pard NV 007s review

    So I recently purchased on of the new model Pard 007s clip ons. I have owned one of the earlier model 007v Pards and my experience with that was not as good as expected, The extra length it added to the rear of the scope meant I had to add a slip on recoil pad every time I wanted the use the NV otherwise it put the head in an very unnatural position in order to get a sight picture. I also had issues getting a decent sight picture especially as the ranges got a little Longer, I went down the extra IR torch route by adding the IR torch to the underside of the rifle. So then the rifle started to weigh way more that I wanted it to and it got very complicated at night working out what was switched on what was was off and managing to get all this coordinated in order to take the shot. Remember that IR torches show no visible beam so it is very easy to accidentally leave it turned on and then have flat battery when it is needed. In my experience the simpler you can make things at night, the better it is. So I went back to using a red torch with some success (I still think the red torch is a great option in some situations). However the issue with the torch is that eventually the deer start to get wise to whats going on. When that happens the only solution is to light them up and be ready for a quick shoot before they all scarper. That's all well and good but the times when you light them up only to find they have turned face or arse on are quite frustrating, as they exit stage left.
    So along came the Pard 007s with its much shorter overall length, more user friendly focus adjustment, fully water proof (which the earlier model was not) and improved IR light performance. I decided to give one a go, I have been on one trip with it so far hunting fallow and I am impressed. All the issues of the previous model seem to be solved, I manged to get a shootable resolution on targets out to 360m. The eye relief was workable without adding an extra butt pad and the adjustments are more user friendly. It was nice to be able to sit there ad watch deer with time to choose my target. I think that even after firing a shot the remaining deer seemed less spooked than when light up with a torch. Also I forgot to mention the fitting of the 007 to the scope, on the earlier model you needed to add electrical tape to the ocular lens of the scope to get the right fit. this was pretty dodgy and did not sit well with me. Now Pard include a set of bushes of varying thicknesses, you just choose one which fits the best. this is a way better system. So anyway the new model Pard 007s get a big tick tick from me.
