Nothing new, just the good old SmartPin, but with a longer scale…
If you’ve got a sidewheel with a bigger diameter, or got a S&B scope, or simply want to use the same sidewheel label for all the four seasons, you might find that the standard scale is not enough. This new version of SmartPin / SmartPin Linear / SmartPin Extra S&B has got a longer scale, I added an extra 10 mm to it.
What does this mean? Here are the adjustment ranges of the pointers, standard / extended version:
SmartPin (with pins): 20 mm / 30 mm,
SmartPin Linear: 15 mm / 25 mm,
SmartPin Extra for S&B: 24 °C / 36 °C (equals 20 mm / 30 mm).
This new version of SmartPin Extra has some other features, too: 3 mounting point for the magnifier, more distance between the thumb screw and the magnifier, and the magnifier can be ordered with a simple Fresnel lens or with a high quality acrylic lens. Please note that the short versions of this pointer did not change.
These new versions will be available for 30 and 34 mm scope tubes only. The first few pointers are already being printed, if you place an order (via backorder) now, they will be dispatched in 2-3 weeks.
At the product page you can choose the shorter or longer scale.
