A Good Eotech Clone Brand

What brand of "holosight/Eotech" is the best? Aside from the Real Steel, lol.

I've seen the ASC, heard that one doesn't have any ghosting, seems to be my choice atm. Had an Eotech clone before and it had awful ghosting, was driving me mad

Thanks

Hurricane is the best copy.

For what it's worth though a used real one is pretty close to the copy price. The reticle on the real one is about a million times better than the copies.

Hurricane is the best by far, but it costs about 1/2 the price of the real thing and nowhere near as durable.

I did not see any trademarks on the Hurricane...that is a major downside

I can confirm the lack of trades. It's the only one with real holographic technology though.

It's an interesting midpoint, but if you're going 200$+ in a clone sight, you might as well save up a bit more and get the real thing used.

Actually the Hurricane EOtech does not have real holo technology, it just uses a slightly different reflecting glass implementation than the usual single glass red dots -- but it is a red dot.

The cheapest option for a real holographic sight is the Bushnell Holo, but it looks nothing like an EOtech.

That being said, I have two EOtechs purchased from Huang (XPS and 556) and both have clear reticles with no noticeable ghosting or distortion as long the brightness is adjusted properly (as with most red dots you get lighting artifacts if you go full brightness in very dark conditions). At half the price of the Hurricane I was able to live with it.

The XPS also appears to be able to hold zero on my GBBR.
