Nikon advertises their Nikoplex reticlewhich sort of looks like a heavy duplex in their photo. Are they actually heavier than other manufacture's duplex, or is it just an illusion? Thanks.

Each manufacture varies slightly on the subtension of the reticle. Some publish those measurements others don't.  I know my older prostaff has a duplex and its very heavy.

My UCC is a little heavier than a Leupold standard VX1. The BDC one I have is heavy.

My two UCC's, 2-7 & 3-9 are about the same as the standard Leo duplex. Too thin for use in the woods at dark thirty.

I have one UCC 6X42 plex. It is a very bright scope but the reticle is super thin IMO.

I have three Monarch UCC’s a 2-7 X 32 plex , a 3-9 X 40 plex and a 2.5-10 X 40 BDC. The BDC appears to be heavier.

I also have two Monarch Gold 30 mm, a 1.5-6 X 42 Niko Plex and a 2.5-10 X 50 SF BDC.

The 1.5-6 X 42 in Talley mounts lives on a TC G2 .45 muzzleloader and is my favorite of all the Nikon’s. I killed a nice buck at zero dark thirty set on 1.5 when it was kinda dark😂a couple years ago.

These days my favorite is my Leica ERi on my Creedmoor.

I have the Monarch 1-4x20 with no 4 and LOVE it and hunt with it. works in low light.
I also have the Monarch 2-8x32 with plex and find it excellent and bright and sharp  for low light deer hunting.
Performance before sunrise and after sunset does not seem to be an issue.

I would like to have a Monarch Gold  1.5-6, but they are hard to find.
