Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spotting scope I use to work for one of the major sporting good stores. I would always have customers come in and ask to see that best of the best. They would always grab the most expensive one out of the display case and admire it just for its price tag. Often times I would take it out front of the store and so they could check it out, when I would do so I always grabbed the Vortex Razor Spotting Scope to compare it with the most expensive scope in the store. Mind you the high end scope was around $4k to $5k. But as soon as I would set both spotting scopes up outside for a side by side comparison the customs always thought the Vortex scope was in the same band as the expensive one they first wanted to see. And after I told them the price point on both of them they always said " I don't see the difference in either one " and they always end up in the check out with the Vortex product. I not only love selling this Vortex scope but I also bought one and love it. Vortex products are one of the best quality out there and they seem to keep the price point down so low that is hard to argue with it. The scope it's self is great, it's very clear and lighter the some in its category and gives you plenty of magnification. An obviously the price point is awesome too! I would say if your looking for a serious spotting scope this is what you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck!!! I purchased this two years ago for western hunting and long range shooting. It has been a critical piece of equipment for judging antelope. It has amazing clarity and paired with my phone skope I have taken some great pictures. It is a bit heavy and on the big side but it is worth it for the clarity, durability, and cost. Oh and the lifetime warranty! I also purchased the Pro GT tripod for it. It's rock solid and has a great price also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic optic I don't think this scope can be improved. I've had it on a sheep/caribou hunt, two bear hunts and an elk hunt. I also never go to the range without it. I use it for digi-scoping on hunts. I bought an angled model so that I can keep my tripod lower, whether I'm sitting or standing. I've been amazed at how much light it lets in, and how clear it is. If you want to hook it to a DSLR camera, Google Novagrade. Works flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I take it everywhere! I received the Razor HD 27-60 spotter almost a year ago now and this thing is phenominal! Glass is on par or better than other products that cost twice as much. It goes with me everywhere along with the phone skope so that so I dont miss anything! I never have any second thoughts about taking this product into rough country either, because you know Vortex will have your back should an accident occur. Two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How I use the scope I use mine for birdwatching in Mexico. A fellow birdwatcher recommended it. I use it to spot birds at a far distance before taking a long distance photograph. It contributes to excellent photos. I recommended it to a friend takes photos of the Manhattan skyline and the New York harbor from his home overlooking Sandy Hook. We are bothe using the iPhone attachment product for even better shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent spotting scope! I use this spotting scope for long range rifle competition, hunting and bird watching. This is the best spotting scope I have ever owned. It is clear to the edge and bright. I am planning to get an adapter to use with my camera. Very pleased with the craftsmanship and quality. It had the best factory warranty in the business. I highly recommend this spotting scope to anyone looking for one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Spotter This spotter is fantastic. It is clear, great glass. It is great in low light situations and clear even in high magnifications. I do a lot of backpack hunting and it can be a bit large and heavy, but I spend a lot of time behind the glass, so it is defiantly worth it. All in all, this spotter allows me to sit and glass longer, see more animals, and increase my success rate in the field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down, the best money can buy! Being a outdoor television producer for the past 5 years for a show on the sportsman channel, I've used just about every brand of optics in the industry. From sponsors to buying glass myself I have enough experience to say that when I recently purchased my spotting scope I bought the best money could buy, for more than one reason. I'm not sponsored by vortex and have actually turned down sponsorships in order to continue using my vortex optics. From elk hunting at 12,000 feet in Colorado, to chasing Muleys and whitetails in the Nebraska Sandhills I've had no issue spotting animals at distances of 4-5 miles. Last night I watched two 160+ inch whitetails over 3 miles away towards last light. I had little issue classing these bucks and knew that they were shooters, if only I had enough time to get there. At the same time my brother used the same power spotting scope that we received in the past through a sponsorship with Hawk optics. My brother could hardly tell the deer were bucks and when he tried to zoom in it became grainy and too dark to see the deer at all. This happens way more often than not as he used the hawk scope all elk season. We didn't even attempt to phone scope through his scope and strictly used mine because of quality and clearness. With the quality of glass enough to keep me from taking 1,000$ from other sponsors just to use my vortex, the warranty they stand behind would be enough alone to sell me on them as well. I can not personally think of another computer who offers a guarantee that will cover you for life, no matter the circumstances. I am extremely hard on my gear, spending around 300 days a year in the field. Having the piece of mind that no matter what happens vortex will repair or replace my glass with no questions asked. It's very rare to find a company who believes in their products that much any more. Not to mention they are made in America!! Again, I am not rrsponsored by Vortex, nor am I getting paid to write this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would and have recommended this scope to many people!! I have this model and use it for inspecting wind turbine blades for damage in conjunction with my Vortex binoculars. I like the scope for the ability to zoom in on the small damages and be able to tell the severity of them. The clarity is unbelievable and the angled scope helps when looking up at the blades. I have recommend this product to other sites for blade inspections!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too bulky for my use I borrowed my father in law's 22x60x85 (the older version) to compare to my 11x33x50 razor and the clarity was good but didn't seem as bright as my little one. I almost bought the larger one but decided the smaller one was the right one for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value in Optics Today I bought this scope in 2017 and have carried it along in my hunting pack in the high mountains of northern NV on 6 hunts. In that time, the scope has covered over 250 miles on foot, spent countless hours glassing, and been dropped onto rocks twice (no worries with the VIP warranty). The scope is still as clear as the day I bought it and as clear as any of the significantly more expensive optics I've looked through. The cons of this piece are few, but should be considered: 1) Weight: This is a heavy piece requiring a heavy tripod. Totally worth it with the huge country I hunt in, but may not be worth it if you typically glass shorter ranges. 2) No Vortex skin is available yet for this scope. VORTEX, PLEASE FIX THIS! Vortex replaced a lens cover that was lost at no cost to me. The quality and durability of this optic, paired with the no questions asked warranty make it the best value in optics today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Glass As a professional guide I spend a lot of time looking through optics. The quality of this spotting scope is exceptional. The light gathering capabillities are great and the image is always sharp and clear. I use this scope throughout the year for gathering sheds, scouting, hunting, and viewing wildlife. This is a great product and I would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built off a great old version I have the older version of the Razor HD and will say if the new scopes made improvements they will be hard to beat. My dad watched a bedded buck last fall from close to 1500 yds and helped my brother and I get into position to make a shot. I've glassed deer from thousands of yards at the foot of mountains in the Wyoming sage brush. This is a great all around scope!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrades from older model After having the Razor for a few years and being sold on the quality of them, I was excited to try out the new one and see the improvements. I was not disappointed! Great glass and I really like the helix focus. I also have the 11-33 Razor for packing into the backcountry but for long distance glossing this spotter can't be beat! Love all my Vortex Optics!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Razor HD Clarity I cant seem to get my Razor to focus over 40 power. Wondering if it's just the one I have or does any one else seam to have a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best spotter ever I have owned this spotting scope for over a year and it still performs flawlessly. In early mornings and late evenings it still picks out the objects I’m looking at. It is durable and easy to pack. Everything on this is built extremely well. Love the razor spotting scope. Just buy it. Do it now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope This scope had made a huge difference in my ability to hunt. Being able to get a good look at an animal from a distance before you make the move. It is a little heavier then other similar models but with the quality and warranty of vortex it is worth it. (I have the older version)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very clear I bought this to glass the area around my cabin. The product itself is outstand, but I think I should have gotten the straight instead of the angled one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I bought this a long time ago Love this spotting scope. I have used swarovski, leupold and others. The quality is right up there with the best but the price is half the others. There is no match to the vortex guarantee. All my friends are amazed at the clarity and distance with this scope. Truly amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should’ve bought one sooner I finally bought a high quality spotting scope to help locate game out here in Big Sky Country. I can see for miles and find animals I would’ve never known were there. This helps me and my hunting buddies make better choices on what animals to peruse and how to get to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Spotter I upgraded my old Razor HD spotter to the new model and what a difference. The glass is much clearer all the way to the edge, and the color is fantastic. Watched grizzlies feeding at over 2 miles away in Yellowstone over the summer. This spotting scope is worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a fine wine.. This thing gets better with distance from the target. Used primarily for glassing whitetails in Wisconsin and sighting in rifles out to 500 m. Will be packing it on many Western trips. Pair it with a good, solid tripod and you are set for any type of scouting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend this product I use this product a lot on western hunts and in the open farm land back east. the glass is clear and crisp with a very easy to use fine focus. It gathers a ton of light during first and last light to allow for clear viewing. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this spotting scope Never owned a spotting scope. Love long range shooting and spotting. Set it up right away when i got it and spotted antelope a mile and a half away clear as day from the back door. Cant wait to get it out to spot deer and not have anymore ground shrinkage.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t be beat for the money! Sure there is better glass out there, there’s no denying that. But at this price point it’s really hard to beat. I’m really glad I didn’t wait on some of top tier glass companies. The small amount of benifit at double the price just could not be justified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope! Been out the past couple weekends spotting for my upcoming deer and elk hunts and this spotting scope has helped me look for miles. Way clear and easy to use. This is a great product and would recommend one to anyone who is trying to improve their hunt.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super clear-easy focus! Just got the new scope and absolutely love it! The focus knob is easy to use and more aesthetic. The edge to edge crispness of the glass is amazing! The biggest feature is the low light clarity. It's something that has to be seen to truly appreciate.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this scope Been in the market for spotting scope for months and after checking out a couple scopes at my local Sportsman's warehouse I decided on the angled razor HD. The quality of glass for the price is what made me buy this and I don't regret it at all.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will buy more vortex products I use this spotting scope for glassing in New Mexico. It is a must have tool for anyone hunting is western states to save time and energy. Night and day difference compared to other sopping scopes I have used. And can't beat the price either.
