Pulsar XQ is a 384 core, the XP is a 640 core.After using my 35 a few more times, I’m seriously contemplating a 25 as a scanner. My buddy just bought a thermion xq50, and I was super jealous and almost contemplating selling the Hogster, until we did a side by side comparison. The Thermion zoom feature shit on the Hogster but it’s also a 640 core so it should. Other than that, the picture wasn’t insanely clearer like I was thinking it would be. At 700 yards we both identified cows, and at distance I was comfortable taking shots we identified deer/skunks and raccoons about the same. It was a little nicer but I don’t think it was $2500 nicer either.
