Tried the Bushnell Tour V4 outside, seems kinda dark to me.  Is the Tour X any better.  Looking for something with better optics without breaking the bank.

What do you mean a brighter screen?  You want more contrast with the numbers in the view finder?

I mean, the V4 is LCD, the letters are black.

Maybe you just need a way to block out more external daylight.

The Bushnell z6 has the ability to control the brightness of the display, and the brightest setting was pretty bright if I remember correctly.

i've used the Bushnell Tour V3 and the Leupold Gx-3i2.  While the Tour V3 displays black symbols on its LCD viewfinder, the Gx-3i2 displays bright red symbols on its OLED viewfinder.  Here are some images found on Google.

Tour V3:

Gx-3i2:

On gloomy overcast days or when there are dark trees/objects in the background, i have a hard time seeing the black symbols of the V3.  
Likewise, on bright sunny days, i will have a hard time seeing the red symbols of the Gx-3i2.

i think the newest Bushnell Pro X2 model offers both; you can switch between the black display and red display.
