When our customers talk, we listen. While we have many fans of our popular 25-50x80mm S.1 Spotting Scope, some of you have asked for a spotter that can similarly wield the lift of a larger objective, but is more compact and easier to pack like our S.2. Enter the new S.3 20-40x67mm - a spotting scope capable of the heavy lifting, without being too heavy to lift.
The S.3 builds upon the excellence of our original premium S Series spotting scope glass and performance, and takes it to the next level in both size and form factor. The S.3, featuring a more compact design and a detachable eyepiece, offers an excellent balance between portability and performance. Positioned between our full-sized S.1 and the popular ultra-compact S.2, the S.3 20-40x67mm provides a high-powered solution across a wide range of magnification levels with a smaller objective lens.
" After years of success with our S.1 Spotter, we are super excited to launch a smaller, more compact version in 67mm. The S.3 combines the great performance of Fluorite glass and superior optic design in a more compact, more packable form factor."
-Mike Lilygren, Maven Co-owner
Available in both straight and angled versions, it's small form factor and variable magnification range is an ideal setup for a variety of uses. Whether you're a hunter, competitive shooter, birder, or a wildlife observer who demands elite-level performance and the flexibility of switching to alternative eyepieces, the S.3 series is a solid high-powered optic to have in your arsenal.
"The size and weight of the S.3 make it a versatile spotter for the hunter who might glass everything from bean fields to the backcountry in a given season.."
-Adam Moore, writer/editor/photographer
We think outdoor writer, Adam Moore, sums it up best: "Maven’s S.3 walks a tightrope between compact and large spotting scopes. I can’t think of a better option for the whitetail hunter who dabbles in western hunting, or western hunters who can’t afford to pack full-size spotters and require creativity when it comes to packing. The size and weight of the S.3 make it a versatile spotter for the hunter who might glass everything from bean fields to the backcountry in a given season. I’ve been most impressed with the S series glass during low light conditions - details remain crisp near max magnification with minimal blurring around the edges. Maven continues to make premium optics more accessible for workaday hunters."
