What is a duplex reticle?

Duplex Reticle

The word duplex comes from the Latin for two-fold, which is only one reason the duplex reticle is the most popular type of cross hair set-up today. The other reasons are as follows:

• The lines in a duplex reticle are thicker on the edges, then taper to thin in the center of the image.

• The thick sections are easier to see against a dark background and the thin lines provide a more precise aiming point. So, if you find yourself in the dark, you may not be able to see the thinner lines at all, but not to worry, the thick outer lines will point to the center where they intersect.
