    Thanks Nurse Jenny for your comprehensive review. My name is Marc and I am President and cofounder of ADC. Please note that the Adscope Print series (Adscope LE) are limited edition scopes that carry a premium price. Our regular Adscope 608 has an MSRP of $79.99. Additionally, some of the tubing tackiness is due to the printing. Undecorated Adscopes are generally less tacky. As to weight, Adscopes are a bit heavier (about 25 -30 grams) depending on the model due to the longer length, and stainless steel construction used throughout (on most of our Clinician and Cardiology series). Finally, we provide free consumable parts forever (eartips, rims and diaphragms), a lifetime warranty, and complimentary refurbishment whenever the scope is returned for service.
