Tasco

For the United States Navy ship, see USS Tasco (SP-502). For the Colombian municipality, see Tasco, Boyacá.

Tasco (also known as Tasco Worldwide) sells consumer telescopes. Tasco mainly imports telescopes for amateur astronomers but has expanded into other optical products, such as spotting scopes, microscopes, binoculars, telescopic sights, and other rifle accessories. Tasco sells via retail stores, catalogs, and online retailers. Tasco is based in Miramar, Florida. George Rosenfield founded the firm as the Tanross Supply Company in 1954. It started as a distributor of fishing tackle and hardware. The name was later shortened to Tasco as its offerings expanded to include binoculars and eyepieces.[1]

Products[edit]

Telescopes[edit]

Tasco's astronomical telescopes have a poor reputation.[2][3] It is one of several companies that follows the deceptive practice of advertising their products based on claims of high magnification, far beyond any attainable usable magnification.[2] Tasco's telescopes tend to be pejoratively referred to as "department store telescopes," low-quality and low-cost instruments targeted at impulse buyers.[2][4][5]

Binoculars[edit]

Tasco imports binoculars with magnifications ranging between seven and ten power on a variety of models. They also offer Snapshot series binoculars, which include an ability to record video and capture still pictures as seen through the binoculars. Users can transfer images to a computer through a USB cable. Tasco provides software for viewing and printing.[6]

Gun sights[edit]

Tasco imports telescopic sights for center-firerifles, rimfire rifles, and handguns featuring magnifications of 1 to 40 power. They also import non-magnifying red dot sights.[7]

Terrestrial scopes[edit]

Tasco offers several models of spotting scopes. These scopes are designed for rugged outdoor use and feature rubber armor protection as well as optional camouflage. Models have magnifications between 12 and 45 times, and feature panoramic view finding.[8]

History[edit]

Tasco was founded by George Rosenfield in 1954. In March 1996, Rosenfield sold the business. At that time, Tasco employed 160 people at its Florida headquarters, and maintained a location in the state of Washington, which employed another 40.[1]

In June 1998, Tasco purchased Celestron, another telescope manufacturer which focused on performance optical equipment and the more serious observer. Celestron was second only to Meade Instruments Corporation in sales of telescopes.[9]

Early in 2001, Tasco began searching for a buyer as profits sank. Meade Corporation begins negotiations for a merger, but the Federal Trade Commission blocked the attempt.

By June 2002, Wind Point Partners, then the parent company of Bushnell Performance Optics purchased the Tasco brand and all the company's intellectual property.

In July 2007, Wind Point Partners sold Bushnell Performance Optics along with Tasco property and sales rights to MidOcean Partners, a private equity firm based in New York and London.[10]

On September 5th, 2013, Alliant Techsystems announced it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Bushnell. Under the terms of the transaction, ATK paid $985 million in cash, subject to customary post-closing adjustments.[11]

ATK spun-off Vista Outdoor upon closing its merger with Orbital Sciences and became Orbital ATK on February 9, 2015. Anyone holding ATK common stock at the end of the business day on February 2, 2015 received two shares of Vista Outdoor common stock. Eligible shareholders had their brokerage account credited or received a book-entry account statement reflecting their ownership. Vista Outdoor was thus initially 100% owned by ATK shareholders. Vista Outdoor stock traded on a "when-issued" basis from January 29, 2015 to February 9, 2015. It began "regular way" trading on the New York Stock Exchange on February 10, 2015 under the ticker symbol "VSTO." No payment or action of any kind was required of shareholders. This transaction was conducted on a tax-free basis. Shareholders subject to American taxes generally did not have to recognize a gain or loss for federal tax purposes.[12][13][14]

Litigation[edit]

On May 29, 2002, Tasco Worldwide initiated liquidation of all its assets.[15] after defaulting on nearly $30 million in loans.[16] The company had been searching for a buyer for several months, but after much interest by Meade Corporation, the Federal Trade Commission, on this day, sanctioned a temporary restraining order in federal district court to preempt any attempt by Meade Instruments Corporation, the leading manufacturer of performance telescopes in the United States, to purchase all, or certain assets, of Tasco Holdings, Inc. including Celestron, a subsidiary, and number two performance telescope provider in the U.S. The FTC argued that an acquisition by Meade of Celestron would negatively impact the performance telescope market by eliminating significant competition between the two companies and by creating a monopoly in the market for Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, which were currently only being sold in the U.S. by Celestron and Meade.[9]

Later in 2002, Tasco and Celestron, then under the ownership of Bushnell Performance Optics, filed suits also in the District Court of California, alleging Meade products infringed on a United States patent entitled "Tripod Structure for Telescopes." Both companies sought injunctive relief and compensatory damages in an unspecified amount, and attorneys' fees and costs. In December 2002, the District Court denied the motions of both parties.[17]

Tasco scopes for air rifles: the optimized choice

The line that Tasco dedicates to air guns includes three models, one in a fixed power configuration and two with variable magnification: 4x32mm, 2-7x32mm and 3-9x40, all with one inch (2.54 mm) main tube. Another feature that the three optics share is the non-illuminated Truplex reticle on the second image plane. Each turret click corresponds to a ¼ MOA reticle shift.
The field of view at 100 meters is 8.7 m, 15.3-4.7 m and 13.3-4.3 m respectively.

The Air Rifle series scopes feature anti-reflection coatings and anti-fog treatments and come complete with mounts.

The aesthetics of the Tasco Air Rifle riflescopes have been particularly cared for to give them a "Tacticool" look with large knurled grips and red lettering on the eyepiece.
Thanks to their very low price they can also be an interesting choice for use on airsoft replicas. Tasco Air Rifle riflescopes are already available for online purchase on the main e-commerce portals at prices ranging from 50 euros for the TAR432 model to about 90 euros for the TAR3940 model
