ProVision fiber optic scope

I don't have much experience with this type of tool, but this one caught my eye on the other day.

Review from ProVision Eagle Fiber Optic Scope

Product information page:

It's being advertised as an inexpensive ($225) fiber optic engine scope.

I have a provision 636. It is not turned out to be as great as they made it sound when I bought it for 300.00.

The new product info for the "eagle" says it has better resolution , and a better light. A compliant 1/4" shaft is available on that unit also.

Those are several of the issues I have with my 636 that needed improvement.

If they have truly addressed those things then it could be a great tool.
I know that even with my old one I found metal chunks in a cylinder from a spark plug that disentegrated upon dissassembly. I would have not seen it with out the scope. That alone was worth the price I paid for the tool.
I also found some other internal engine mishaps on my hardly abelson that would have been otherwise un viewable.

I'd buy one if I didn't already have one.

later, mikey

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example

I have one very similar to the Provision, mine is a Flex View, but instead of a normal light on the end it has a blue light for finding A/c leaks using dye. Its great for looking inside the heater case at the evap core. I use it a lot and it works well after you get the hang of using it.
