NORTH CHESTERFIELD, VA. (February 19, 2014) – Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance sports optics, is expanding its award-winning TERRA 3X riflescope line with four 50mm low-light models: the 3-9×50 Z-PLEX, the 3-9×50 RZ6, the 4-12×50 Z-PLEX and the 4-12×50 RZ8.
ZEISS TERRA 3X riflescopes outperform many other well-known brands by featuring best-in-class image quality, comfortable ergonomics and durable construction. With a retail price starting at just $349, these riflescopes pack a powerful, uncompromising punch into a lightweight, yet extremely rugged, compact one-inch design.
All TERRA 3X feature proprietary ZEISS MC anti-reflective coatings and 1/4-MOA adjustments. Based on its high performance and value, TERRA 3X riflescopes received Petersen’s Hunting magazine’s 2014 Editor’s Choice Award.
Building on this success, the new TERRA 3X models add even more versatility to this line of riflescopes: Featuring a larger 50mm objective, these four new riflescopes are perfect for low light conditions and offering hunters an opportunity to extend their day of shootable light.
“With the tremendous success that the TERRA line has experienced,” said Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics, “it made perfect sense to expand this line with more high-performance models at incredibly competitive price points. We are excited to now offer 50mm low light performance riflescopes within reach of almost every sportsmen.”
The new riflescopes come standard with Z-PLEX or the TERRA-exclusive RZ6 and RZ8 ballistic reticles and are backed by ZEISS’ U.S. Limited Lifetime Warranty. For more information visit www.zeiss.com/sports.
