I sold a bunch of these when working at my local gun shop! The field reviews we got made me want to try one for myself. Having used one a time or two now, I can say for the price you will be very happy!
This is the best spotting scope I've used. I also have the GT PRO tripod which I recommend when you purchase a vote spotting scope. The quality of Vortex products are the best around. I would recommend Vortex above all others.
I have had this scope for over a year and a half, and every time I use it amazes me. The optics are very clear and with the 80 mm objective lens, the picture is bright. The zoom does darken the image but that is expected with almost any spotting scope. Great quality for the price and a lifetime warranty! You can never go wrong with buying anything made by Vortex.
Took this on my Sons Elk hunt this last fall. And it worked great! I was watching the herd from my vantage point with the Spotting Scope and talking to my Son on the walkie-talkies. Could direct him right to the Elk. Worked perfectly! Got a nice 5x5!
After my first trip to Montana I decided to pick up this Diamondback spotting scope to help pick apart the landscape out there. What a huge difference it made this last fall! It's lightweight, fits great in my pack and the protective coating on it is nice. (I'm not exactly gentle on my equipment. It does get a little fuzzy when it's maxed out but it still did what I needed it to do. I would suggest spending the money on a good tripod for it as well. All in all it's a great spotting scope for the money!
