Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value I bought it last summer as an upgrade from my previous spotting scope. Didn't have money to buy a top of the line model, so tried to find one to get the best bang for my buck. The warranty was definitely a large selling point. One draw back is when getting into the top 1/3 or so of magnification range. It gets blurry and am unable to fine tune it to see clearly. I can tell if its a "big" buck/bull but am unable to accurately field score it unless it is close enough to use the lower magnification levels. I love the angled eye piece, so happy I went that route and also the larger objective for early mornings and late evenings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality! Worth the Money! Bought my spotting scope last year as my first big purchase into optics for hunting. Very happy with my purchase. The price was very reasonable and the quality of glass is uncompareable to another lower priced spotting scopes. Clarity at maxed zoom Is not darkened or distorted. Very happy with my purchase. I even compared this scope to my buddies Razor spotting scope and the difference was minuscule. Keep in mind if you want to do a lot of glassing with a window mount you may want the straight scope. I bought the angled scope so when your using a tripod in the mountains it's a little easier on your neck looking around. BUY THIS SCOPE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome combination of performance and value I have owned my DB spotting scope for about 4 years now. It has been a regular at the range, but also has gone on hunting trips out west. In either environment, I have been pleased with the clarity that this scope provides. It is a bit heavy, so it needs to be stabilized on the right tripod, which helps to further enhance the performance. I dropped my scope the other week, and was apprehensive. The reputation for the warranty is great, but I was not sure that it would cover "Stupid". It does--the team at Vortex repaired my scope, and I got it back in as-new condition. Was really pleased with their service, and will buy more of their products because of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great field glass that doesn't break the bank. While this doesn't compare to the Viper HD line these give the best bang for the buck when compared to other spotting scopes of this price range. I've used Vortex, Swavoski, Kowia, and others on firing lines out to 1000m in competitive shooting and this one is as good as any of them on a bright sunny day at the range. I have also used this scope glassing for Elk, Deer, Antelope, and Javalina and it works good for that though in low light the higher end Viper's better coatings allow more light and contrast for seeing through glare and shadow when looking for animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vastly exceeded my expectations! I bought this to use as a spotting scope for archery, and it works better than any that I have ever used! The view is crisp and clean, and the focus works fantastically. As a test when I got this scope, I decided to point it at the brightest star in the sky, to see if I could focus on something that far out. Turns out, I found Jupiter! You could clearly see the planet with 4 of its moons. Recently, I decided to look for Saturn, since the orbits were more or less aligned and after some searching, I found it! I was pretty skeptical about being able to view something so far out, but you could clearly see that it was Saturn and its rings! I would recommend this scope to anyone as it has so many great uses! I would add photos of my stargazing adventures, but I would have to search my phone for them :p.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best warranty ever This dimondback spotting scope was my first Vortex product, I got it used off Craigslist and within the first year of having it the wind blew it over while I was hunting in the backcountry and cracked the lens. I went on to the vortex website and filled out the warranty forms and mailed it to them and within a couple weeks I had my spotting scope back with now Crack in it. It's nice to see a company that will stand behind there products 100% without proof of purchase I am switching all my optics over to Vortexs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable, clear glass that wont break the bank Was looking for a compact, lightweight spotter that was capable of performing in the mountains and alpine of rugged BC,Canada. Also having a young family I needed something that was affordable. Decided to give the diamondback a go as i already have the same line in binos and the HP scope as well (which is phenomenal). This scope did not disappoint. On our last 5 day backpack hunt we covered on average 15 miles a day, majority of it up, down and sideways. I bareley knew this scope was in my pack. It helped me to spot and stalk from over 1 mile away this buck in the pics. Admittedly its blurry at its max magnification. But even at half its mag i was able to see and clearly identify this 4 point at 900 yards at sunrise. No question this spotter did its job, sure you can find clearer glass. But expect to pay 4x as much. Very reliable, quality product for the price. Awesome service and warranty is the cherry on top. Cheers vortex, customer for life Cheers vortex

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this junk preiod Spotting scope works great at 20*40 but at 60 like looking through glass with water on it. Sent it back in for repair or replace you know that life time warranty bs yea right, and they sent it back no change no problem found, I let 4 other shooters at the range try it, all said the same thing at 20 and 40 good to go but at 60 its messed up. But not to worry, I work at a gun shop full time and at a range part time I will give Vortex better service than they gave me, by relating this experience to all my customers when they ask what not to buy.
