Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear and rock solid This is a great piece of glass. I actually have the older model from last year, but the clarity is only improved on this new model. The focus is very simple and the sun shade comes in handy on those bright days or early mornings glassing while the sun is coming up. This is a heavy scope, but I haven't compared it much to other brands in this category. It's going to increase your pack weight for sure, plus you'll have to be sure to get a trip sturdy enough to handle the weight here. Regardless, if you are a Western hunter and you spend a lot of time glassing, you are going to accept the additional weight as it is going to pay off in dividends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Spotter for Longer Range Precision Rifle This spotter is absolutely fantastic for longer range spotting needs. When I'm RO'ing longer range stages, the Razor HD works great. The focus is fast and precise and the clarity is phenomenal all the way up to max power! My ONLY issue with this spotter appear when stages are shorter range or require a wide field of view. Even on the low end, this spotter may be too much for mover engagements inside 500 yards or wider field fire engagements. It's not really a problem with the spotter, more just a design of the stage that makes it not ideal. Backed by the VIP warranty I never worry about it while packing in any conditions i encounter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will recommend vortex products to anyone with any pricepoint since getting this spotting scope, I have used it on 5 Nevada hunts. Antelope, deer, and 3 elk hunts. The one that stands out the most is our bull tag. We were watching a small herd of elk on the border of Great Basin National Park after the sun had been down for a while (the border runs along the top of the mountain). It makes a huge difference being able to watch these animals while it is getting dark. The ergonomics of this scope is amazing. It feels like it is just another limb of your body. To top it off, you cannot beat VIP warranty that vortex offers for all of their optics for no charge. That is a major selling point for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Hunting Tool Bought this spotter to help cover more area at greater distances to hunt Coues deer in AZ. Paired with my phoneskope, I was able to save my legs and see deer over 2 miles away that I would have never known what they were without it. I was able record some amazing footage while scouting and hunting. Also, at the range I didn't need a buddy to help spot for me when shooting distances beyond 500 yds. The Razor and Phoneskope once again helped me know what adjustments I needed to make to get dialed in. If you're on the fence about the weight between the 60mm and the 85mm, do yourself a favor and go with the 85mm. You will not regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Razor Sharp If you like to hike like me, then the new Razor HD 27-60x85mm angled spotting scope is something you need to have. Glassing entire sections of mtns ranges knowing exactly where I want to go is a game changer with this scope. I am most impressed with the new Razors ability to continue to have a sharp, crisp, and clear image all the way to full magnification. The amazing sharpness of this optic, combined with its incredible performance in low light conditions, makes this a scope everyone needs. Thank you Vortex for making products of this quality, at a price point that the every day common hunter can afford. Thank you Vortex Optics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Can't Beat it For the Price I went to a long range shooting school two years ago with my son. We shot as teams and learned the roles of shooter/spotter working together. One of the many things we practiced was to watch for bullet trace. I was using a good spotting scope but all the instructors were using Razor HD spotting scopes. I borrowed one of them for awhile and what a difference. We were shooting out to 1200+ yards, and the Razor HD was crystal clear at all distances. I gave my spotting scope to my son and bought one of these - worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope with Great Durability I bought this scope not to long ago and only used it to scout Spring Turkeys and to Scout whitetail just before how season started. I had great success with this scope. Using it in the Midwest it proved plenty durable whether I was spotting from the truck or on top of a brushy hill. I never had an issue with the scope fogging up or not being able to clearly see what I was looking at. The true test of the scope was these last couple weeks ago when it was used in Colorado to spot some Muleys. I loaned it to a friend and he brought it back all dusty with nothing but good things to say. He decided he needed to buy his own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Razor HD 27-60X85 Recently purchased the next generation Razor HD 26-60X85 angled spotting scope. As an outfitter you can imagine my pickiness when it comes to optics and like every Vortex optic I have purchased I am simply amazed. The Razor HD 26-60X85mm is well worth the monetary investment. It is super clear all the way through to include the edging. Is new sleek design makes packing it much easier then the previous generation. You gain nothing in weight to previous generation design. Tried and true research and design has made it possible for Vortex to top their previous HD generation models. Would highly recommend this product to any hunter but a must for western style hunting.

I have the older version of the Razor HD Scope. When I use it at sub-minus temperatures, the zoom fails to work. I googled this problem and it seems it's a common issue. Is this not a warranty issue? Up here in Canada it gets cold eh! 

Asked by: Siuco
This was a known problem with the first batch of Gen I scopes we received. We corrected the problem with a replacement eyepiece and we have one for you. If you would like us to send you that, please contact us at 800-426-0048 Ext. 6, and ask for Lynette. Thank you!

I just decided to purchase your Razor HD 27-60x85 spotting scope to mount my canon 5D only to find you discontinued the adapters. I would like to know what problem you were having with the combination and when you will offer adapters again. Thanks

Asked by: chris
Functionally, our Razor Gen I digiscoping adapters worked fine, but we found more and more of our customers were going with smart phones for digiscoping. To that end, Phoneskope.com makes smart phone adapters for all of our spotting scopes. However, if you still want to use a Canon DSLR, try the Novagrade.com Canon DSLR adapter: https://novagrade.com/shop/canon-direct-projection-adapter/ The Razor Gen II spotter was a complete redesign, so we simply didn’t build a new digiscoping adapter for the series.

Opticsplanet is showing this model as discontinued. Is there a new version coming out?

Asked by: Rob C
That model is our newest version and isnot being discontinued. I was able to find it on www.opticsplanet.com and couldn't find any indication of that. If you could email the page to gcronin@vortexoptics.com I'd be very interested in seeing where you saw that.
