Lol not sure if its the same one...have to go look it up...im sure a SFP won't compare to the NF.....good thing I don't get to see through one coz then I'd want one....maybe one day...for now I'm happy with the ones I have...so don't post pics of the NF so I don't know what I'm missing lol
Here's the post from johnwayne_77 on the other forum...take it for what its worth....
I own both.
Glass is just as good. (The glass in the PST-II 1-6 is excellent for the pricepoint)
The eyebox on the PST-II feels a little bit more generous, but I'm still getting the mount dialed in on the gun the Arrowhead is installed on. I ditched the Aero mount last week in favor of a 1.93 ADM mount and that's helping. I think a 1.7 is probably ideal but the 1.93 ADM mount was free-99, so...
The reticle on the Arrowhead is much nicer to use with illumination. The more traditional crosshairs reticle on the PST-II is still very quick to use at speed...but I spent a lot of years hunting game with that kind of reticle so it's easy to use anyway.
I can tell you after playing with it back to back with a Nightforce 1-8x I prefer the Arrowhead by a considerable margin. If there's a measurable difference in the clarity of the glass, I couldn't see it. Using both of them back to back at everything from 5 yards out to 300 I greatly preferred the Arrowhead in usability, clarity, and ease of use. Especially up close. First focal plane optics are nice but the sight picture you get on the NF sucks compared to the Arrowhead's reticle, IMO. The super-restrictive eye box on the NF is a pain in the balls. And it's so restrictive that if you shift your head even slightly it looks like the illuminated part of the reticle is blinking. It's not, it's just sort of 3D hologramming (if that's a word) slightly and that makes it look funny. It's also a pain in the balls to use at distance because the center of the reticle takes up so much real estate. Shooting at a head plate on a hostage target at 300 you're just guessing where the plate is because you can't see it. With the Arrowhead I can see it and I can pick which part of the plate I'm putting the dot in the center of the reticle on.
The only reason I'm not replacing my PST-II 1-6x with another Arrowhead is because the gun it's on is a legit sub-MOA gun (.8 MOA, to be exact) with the MagTek MK262 load and I don't have the time or the spare ammo to dial in another optic on the gun before I have to teach with it. So I'm leaving it alone
