I don't like it personally. In my experience it takes away from my vision.

I bought a Vortex PST 4-16 x50 for my Grendel and even on the lowest light setting in dusky conditions it hurts more than helps. Just glad it has an off sw

My crossbow scope has it. I've tried it here in the yard, but as you said it hurts more than it helps. On the lowest setting the crosshairs seem to cover most of the target which is 20"x 20" at 30yds.

Had a weaver classic extreme and loved the reticle. Could turn it down super low at dusk and it was sweet.

I have one on a Nikon Prostaff 5 18x that lights up either green or red or can turn it off. I absolutely love it especially if my scope lens gets all wet or snow covered. I found that out in Colorado this year ;) I dont like the red at low light conditions but the green works well. You can also adjust the brightness of either color.
