For years now EOTech has been the premier holographic sight on the market for military, law enforcement, and shooters since the mid-90’s. Now, EOTech has turned its attention and expertise to the riflescope market with its new Vudu line of riflescopes.

The Vudu line of rifle scopes made their debut at NRAAM held about two weeks ago. The new line of riflescopes hit the ground with a lot of buzz and excitement about EOTech’s new offering to the optics market. I will admit I was one of those people intrigued by what EOTech could bring to the crowded riflescope game. 

You have you have so many well established names in that market. Such as Nightforce, Leupold, Bushnell, Trijicon, Steiner, and Vortex. These company has established themselves within the riflescope market place. 

Working in EOTech’s favor is a industry recognition and products that set the standard in the marketplace in many respects. EOTech needs no hype machine with the Vudu lineup. EOTech would rather let the product speak for itself. 

Let’s get into the Vudu lineup of precision riflescopes. Vudu offers 6 rifle scopes to fit the various needs of shooters. What separates a few of these Vudu scopes from others in the market is there first focal plane reticle design. Most hunters, competitive, and recreational shooters scopes are usually second focal plane reticle in their scopes.

For those who don’t know the difference between first focal plane and second focal plane here is a quick breakdown.

First Focal Plane (FFP) vs. Second Focal Plane (SFP)

A riflescope’s reticle is placed in either the first focal plane (FFP) or the second focal plane (SFP). The main difference between them is that an SFP reticle will appear to be the same size regardless of magnification. With an FFP reticle, the size of the reticle will appear to change as the scope’s magnification is changed. 

Resource: Taken from NRA American Hunter article, First Focal Plane or Second Focal Plane. Click the link below to read the article FFP or SFP.

Vudu’s Lineup

For complete details on each of the riflescopes check out the description and specs at the end of the article.

The first four optics of the Vudu lineup are FFP optics. The Vudu 1-6x, Vudu 2.5-10x, Vudu 5-25×50, and Vudu 3.5-18x all use FFP reticle. Vudu’s 1-6x power is for 3-gun shooter and hunter enthusiasts out there. The 2.5-10x power scope is for your medium range precision shooting. While 3.5-18x power is for your long distance shooters. For those Bob Lee Swaggers of the world. Finally, the 5-25×50 scope is for short platform rifles and also to allow for thermals or night vision to be attached in front of the optic of a rifle. 

The last two offerings from the Vudu lineup are two SFP optics. First, you have the Vudu 8-32×50 scope. This scope is ideal for competitive and recreational long range shooters. Second, you have is Vudu 3.5-18x which ideal for medium to long range shooting. 

EOTech has built an excellent foundation with the Vudu line of rifle scopes. The Vudu lineup has a solid foundation with the ability to enter the market and thrive. EOTech has position itself to expand its market and growth potential within the market. This Vudu line of scopes will also push companies to produce better scopes for the community, hopefully at a better price point too.?All in all, a win for the market and community. I’m excited to see what shooters have to say about the Vudu lineup.
