“This is truly incredible,” stated Mike Jensen, President of Carl Zeiss Sports Optics USA. “Earning an optics award in the first year of the launch in the crossbow category is a major accomplishment. Winning them consistently is further proof that ZEISS is the undisputed world leader in sports optics. The Field & Stream optics test is one of the most respected in the industry and we are very honored and humbled by this tremendous achievement.”

The winning products of the Field & Stream test are ultimately selected based on significance of the innovation, the quality of the design, and the value they bring to outdoorsmen. Selection criteria vary, depending upon the category, but all of the winning products share one characteristic: excellence in their field.

Field & Stream’s optics tests were conducted by writer and optics guru, Tom McIntyre, author of “The Snow Leopard’s Tale” and 40 years of safari stories, “Augusts in Africa,” to be published next year by Skyhorse Publishing. “The TERRA XB75 combines the innovation and the reliability in the field that has come to be expected from Zeiss,” said McIntyre.”

“Our staff spent the better part of the past year finding and testing the gear that will make readers’ time in the woods more productive and more fun,” says Slaton White, Deputy Editor of Field & Stream. “The winning products not only withstood our tough testing, but they stood head and shoulders above the rest displaying absolute excellence in their field. The “Best Of The Best” is the highest honor Field & Steam bestows on gear, and the winning products are the best of the year; worth your time, worth your money.”
