    Swaro Z3 vs Kahles Helia CT

    Hi guys, what are the comparisons of either scope as far as general hunting is concerned? Are they comparable?
    Thank you.

    Both very nice little scopes.
    Imo they are very similar my eyes certainly can't tell the difference.

    I've just put a kahles ct 3-9x42 on my rifle. It is nice to look through and has a good field of view. I've never looked through a Z3 though so can't compare.

    Much price difference between the two? I'm thinking your looking at the compact 32mm versions?

    both roughly the same optically, swarovski owns kahles I think. It would come down to price and looks.

    Good luck finding a new CT. CT has been replaced by the KX line, just as nice.
