    True eyes folks, I'd love to know if this preference is based on price or realism? Thanks.

    Both 1fish2fish, many have won major world and state championships with them. I use them and Meder, Tohican, VanDykes and not one customer questioned which eye I used. If you could find a 32 mm black marble you could probably get away with that if the mount looks good.

    Thanks Paul. I don't work on deer but have shared some info from this side of the forum with others who do. Also, I meant best value, not necessarily cheapest, to clarify that. Just trying to understand which are most accurate.

    Best, Scott

    If someone has pictures I would love to see the difference between the tru eyes and the Joe Meder eyes on a mount. Also does Mckenzie still sell the old style joe meder eyes? I just see the liquid lens for $18.

    Is that the "new style meder eyes"? I'm trying to figure out which eyes to order for my next mount and I'm not sure I want to spend $18. I really like the looks of the meder eyes.
