I have had a Tasco scope for a lot of years and this year I have noticed that when I zoom from the 3 power to the 9 power stage that around the 4,5,6 ,7 it is hardly able to turn at all. It used to be free flowing and want to know if this is a problem that I have to worry about. The rubber has peeled off the band to turn it. The peeling of the rubber just happened and tomorrow is hunting season. Is this something that effects the zooming on the inside. If it is then I will send it back to the company to have fixed. I fear that as rough as it is to turn that my mounts will be affected by the leverage it takes to turn it. I would appreciate and help or information on this matter. Thank You!

It sounds like the scope is presenting resistance from the gears inside, and this is probably why the rubber has peeled off. It sounds like there's abnormal resistance, and I would recommend having it fixed, since Tasco has a no fault lifetime warranty, as this blog attests:
Because of all the qualities I'm about to mention, any type of hunter would surely feel great with cheap Tasco rifle scopes. In addition to all the great features, the company offers a No Fault Lifetime Warranty. This signifies that Tasco will fix or replace their scopes if anything malfunctions no matter what the causes Here's Tasco's support site:
They say that Tasco scopes are hard to turn anyway, so you could probably get by with it until you take a hunting break and send it in.
Good luck, and hope this helps. Read More At : Tasco...
