Born into the bloodline of our popular Diamondback family this spotter delivers outstanding performance-clearly a superb choice when you need a heavyweight performer in a light compact package. The Diamondback optics guarantee a bright image throughout the magnification range and as true to all Diamondback optics the rugged construction stands up to rough use in the field.
After using a competitor for years I upgraded to a Vortex Diamondback spotting scope this year. I spent less money on the Diamondback and in return received a significant upgrade. Crisp, clear images brought me new excitement while locating game. You can’t do better for the money than Vortex. Thank you for such a phenomenal product.
I purchased this spotting scope for hunting deer and elk in Utah. In the high country, you can often find yourself glassing great distances. This scope performs great up to about 45x-50x magnification. After that, it starts to get a bit blurry. If you are glassing shorter distances this scope is excellent! Can't beat the price for the quality. However, if having a crystal clear picture at great distances is important I would look into an HD scope.
I got this for my dad as a gift before we head out west this fall. Compared to other spotters in this price range its the best you can get. Its main purpose is going to be on a window mount looking at whitetails within a 1000 yards. And for what he needs it for, its a perfect scope. Great clarity up to about 50x
I've used this spotting scope in the field for a number of hunts and scouting trips. I've been extremely pleased with the clarity and brightness, even in low light conditions at dawn while looking for elk and deer. It's rugged and easy to use and a great value.
Bought my Diamondback 20-60x60 Straight spotting scope over a year ago. I am not an impulse buyer so I looked long and hard to get the most for my money. Extremely pleased with the Vortex spotter. Quality glass and American made.
I bought my Vortex a couple months ago and used it for the first time on an Ibex hunt in the Florida Mountains in Southern New Mexico. It was so fun watching the Ibex from 1-2 miles away! Through my Diamondback i could definitely pick out the big rams from the smaller ones. Anyone who has been on this hunt knows you need good glass as it is so difficult even getting to the mountain! I loved my spotter and it was definitely better than my friends spotter which was a different brand but at a comparable price. I think Vortex is very superior to many other brands and very affordable!
