Great quality with reasonable price - 06/29/2010

by Ross from Glenville, West Virginia

As a fan of Swarovski binoculars, I first tried the Swarovski HD 20-60x85 scope and was not convinced it was worth the price. I returned it to give the Vortex Razor a try and was very impressed with the edge-to-edge image clarity and colors in very low light. I have not had problems with eye relief (I also don't wear glasses), but agree with Clint that the scope case would be improved with a zip-opening eye cup. I also have noticed that the rubberized portion of the scope's body has started to "peel" off in one location, but not a big deal. Several months into owning the Razor, I am very pleased overall. I also find the "viewing guide" attached to the lens to be extremely useful for astronomy.

Eye Relief - 04/02/2010

by Stephen from Boulder

This is a fine optical scope but I find the eye relief to leave a lot to be desired. At any zoom other than 20x you will find you have to place your glasses on the eyepiece and push your glasses closer to your eye to get a reasonable field of view.

Vortex Razor Spotting Scope - 02/21/2010

by Ken from Florida

I am a snowbird and live in Wisconsin during the summer. A trip to Eagle Optics to compare products is an easy summer outing for me.

I have compared scopes in Eagle Optics store for the last couple of summers. I looked through many great scopes but I just could not part with the money for what I liked. With the Euro to dollar ratio so high I felt the European offerings were just overpriced.

After reading the reviews on the internet, I decided to give the Vortex Razor scope a try. Well, after using this scope, I can confirm that the high praise for this scope is accurate. This scope is terrific! I feel this scope offers real value for my money with a view as good as most of the other higher priced scopes I have looked through. The differences are negligible. I know a Roseate Spoonbill or a Pileated Woodpecker down here in Florida will not look any better through another scope.

I demand high quality views through optics but I want the cost to be reasonable. This scope does that for me.

Comparable to Swarovski, better price. - 11/19/2009

by Clint. w. Rupert from Edson Alberta Canada

This new Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 spotting scope is very high quality, excellent lighting and edge to edge glass (very clear)
same as swarovski's 20-60x85 HD.
Thanks Vortex for stepping up to the plate for high quality and way better pricing.
I also found objective lens cap tight, but have just sanded down the rubber lip a little. The scope case I feel would be better if it had a zip open eye piece not restricting or interfering the eye piece while adjusting it.
Thanks Clint.

Scope - 08/19/2009

by Ed LaBorde from Freeport Illinois

This scope has excellent optics. It is ideal in low light. We really enjoy using it. Two recommendations would be a larger diameter Sightfinder and a much better Objective Lens cover. The one it has makes you not want to use it. Also the protective case is very slippery and hard to get a grip on.
