Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE ALL VORTEX PRODUCTS First I'll tell the story about how I got it, I ordered online from a individual and it was broken and severely effecting performance. I sent it myself to Vortex but later received an email saying sorry you had to pay for shipping and they sent me a bunch of great gear for compensation. I got it back within two weeks and it was flawless. I took it on my late season see hunt and I was able to look miles and find the buck I wanted. From a mile away I was able to tell I wanted to harvest him. Without the help of my Vortex spotting scope there is no way I could have been successful on my hunt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck or bull... I have two sets of spotting scopes from vortex and two sets of binoculars from vortex and a handful of tripods. Three things I have to have in optics and vortex provides all of them. Clarity, durability and customer service. The viper series are so clear I have not found another company provide lenses like these for the price they come in. I use my optics on all my hunts so that means they take their fair share of abuse. Then there is the customer service. I have had them send replacements without even asking me to send the old product back in. I couldn't be more satisfied with Vortex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST spotting scope EVER !!! I bought this scope two months ago and I am here to tell you it is the best I have used. I was torn between this and the Razor. I found that the Viper had a bigger objective lens and allowed me further distance. I am a competitive long range shooter and everything I have is Vortex (Rangefinder, two scopes, one pair of binos and now this spotting scope). I am telling you, bang for your buck, quality of glass and size, you simply will not find a better spotting scope on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a game changer! I used this spotting scope on a 7 day Moose hunt in interior Alaska. The clarity and low light use was absolutely stunning. I would hike up a mountain daily to spot for moose and the only item i took was the spotting scope. I spotted a moose from 2 miles away with this and was able to tell it had 4 brow tines which made it legal which directly led to that moose being taken. This scope let me know that moose was legal. Beyond thrilled with the product! I would consider this THE best investment for my hunting style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My First Spotting Scope...and pleased! I have had this for about a year. Works very well and has very good clarity. Compared to other scopes I have used this one is really nice. I wish it came with an enclosed case to store/transport it in. it only comes with a soft case that was a lot of work to get on but it offers some protection and it can be used without ever having to take the soft cover off. I haven't really used it past 300 yards, but works okay at the range for that. Make sure you get a good tripod for it, you'll be glad you did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big and Beautiful This has been a great scope. Its big, Beautiful and a great value. I used it for one season packing it in my pack. I decided that I don't like the weight or size when hunting out of a backpack. But when I'm car hunting I love it! I think that the most important thing is to have a sturdy tripod to support it. Because of its size wind tended to push it around a little more than my smaller scopes. It has great clarity in all light conditions, my kids love to use it to look at the moon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass for the price I have used and abused this spotting scope for several years. From sitting in the backseat of the pickup to being tied to the side of a horse in the backcountry, it has consistently performed and taken the abise like a champ. When it came time for repairs (at my own fault) the VIP warranty was fast, beyond generous, and correct the first time i sent it in. The glass quality is very good for the price point and the focus, zoon and protective case work flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Stoked up until recently I've only been able to admire your products from the opposite side of the counter. I've scratched and saved all i could to finally afford one of your spotting scopes. This took quite some time due to the needs of my wife and kids but they are definitely worth putting myself last. Cant wait to go pick it up! Will definitely be attached to my hip and one of my most prized possessions. Thanks for putting out a great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Scope! This Scope is so easy to use and it didn't break the bank. I've used it in various positions, standing, sitting, prone, and it worked for all of them. Clarity is excellent and focusing is quick and easy. The neoprene sleeve not only protects the scope, it also makes it easy to hold the scope. The quick release feature makes attaching to a tripod or window mount very quick and easy. Thank you for a great scope!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far absolutely pleased! New Viper spotter I received my Viper HD 20-60 spotter this week along with Summit SS tripod and window mount. The field time I have on it is amazing. I have sat and looked at elk today that I may have not even seen with my binos. Fits well in my J34 Eberlestock pack and spent the day counting points! This has been several years in the works to purchase and couldn't be happier, aside from the amazing warrant! Thanks Vortex

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Field and Bench My wife bought me this spotting scope years ago and I love it. The angled eyepiece took some time to get used to spotting targets/game, however I prefer this over a straight eye piece. It allows your neck to stay in a more comfortable position when sitting or standing. Awesome spotting scope with great clarity and very durable. Only downside is the scope is a bit heavy to pack on long hunting trips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great scope for how I use it. I have had this scope for about 3 months now and I have seen turkey and deer and we even use it for looking at the moon with the cub scouts. It is fun and in combination with the Pro GT tripod I can set it up fast and at different heights so all the scouts and parents can view it. Plus with the VIP warranty I have no worries letting the Tiger Cubs claw on it as they scan the wood line for wildlife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scope-sational! This thing is amazing. Go figure, it's a Vortex? This was an exceptional buy and when I look through the scope every time I can't help but say holy cow! The clarity in the lenses are clear to the edges, I could even see the color of eyes and on the face of my deer and elk. On top of the quality is the warranty. You could run these over 100x and still get the lifetime quarantee no questions asked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality and service We use this scope at work and couldn't be happier with the quality and clarity it provides. Being in the field, things happen and we damaged it (I'm surprised it wasn't more damaged due the the height it fell from). We sent it in to Vortex to see what could, if anything could be done. They came through with their VIP warranty and got it back to us FAST and good as new. Keep up the great work!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST all around value in the market! I use my Viper for deer, turkey, and waterfowl scouting and love it! I wear glasses so getting a scope that gives me the eye relief that lets me have a full field of view is important and the Viper does that PLUS the clarity is fantastic no matter what power I use, the light level, or the distance I'm looking at. I don't think you can get a better spotting scope for the money...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product by an even Better Company I purchased a Vortex Viper spotting 20x60x80 Spotting scope and like it so much I have since purchased 2- 6x24x50 Ebr2c Rifle scopes. This is all due to the quality of the product, price and mostly to the high quality of friendly professionalism that the employees exude everytime I call. Thanks Vortex. From a now dedicated reoccurring Vortex customer. - Shane

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spotting scope! I spent quite a bit of time looking for a scope and did numerous comparisons. This in my opinion offered me everytime that I need. Rugged construction but manageable weight, superb optics at any distance, the fine focus is fantastic, sealed and gas charged optics for any kind environment or weather, along with a lifetime warranty. All at an affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spotting scope is a must have. I can't say enough about this spotting scope it's helped me find deer that I'd never found with out them. Helped keep pressure off the deer till it's time to move in. At the range it's handy never have to walk to see where you hit. Thanks vortex for helping me fill my wall and see things very clearly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Can See Clearly Now The Rain Is Gone! I am in absolute love with this spotting scope! Its light weight, durability, and crystal clear views make it stand above all other competitors! I use this scope every night and am never disappointed with the view, Vortex will be the only thing you find in my hunting equipment from here on out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat it for the price Finally got the chance to use my spotting scope this hunting season and was amazed with it, I chose the angled for the ease of use when sitting in a chair or on a ridge top, for my purposes it works flawlessly. We were seeing game on on ridge tops easily with great color contrast and clarity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll love it! I've had mine for two years now it goes on every hunting trip! Clarity and quality are awesome! Warranty is unbeatable! The only downside to the spotting scope is the tripod plate. Trends to slip and could use some rubber or texture. Other then that, I love it! Thanks Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very verynice spotting scope I have been very impressed with this spotting scope. I got the 20-60x80 Vortex Viper HD Angled Spotting Scope. I have been looking at things from various distances and have been amazed at the clarity. I found a radio tower that I ranged at 245 yards. I could focus clearly at the brackets on the top of this tower and count the bolts. This was at full 60 power. I have seen reviews that people couldn't do something like this at full magnification. This is a very nice spotting scope. I am very happy with the purchase. I ordered a Vortex Sparc to put on the spotter, Vortex has a video on their website about this idea. I got the angled scope, it is not hard to find things, but the red dot makes it even easier and more fun. I got a Pro GT tripod for this scope. It works perfect for this scope, it is not really heavy like some of the reviews say it is. There seem to be a lot of complainers on review sites. Vortex makes some nice stuff. The Vortex Viper line is a really great medium dollar range line of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortex Viper HD Scope Second to None I own both Vortex Viper HD 10x42 Binoculars and the Viper HD 20-60x80 spotting scope, as well as the Skyline and High Country tripods.  1-What I love about Vortex Optics, their warranty is stand alone THE BEST in the optics business. My spotting scope got broken while trying to use it as a dead rest for my 300 WSM. The repercussion broke the focus setting, I called Vortex, they emailed me a paper I filled it out, sent my scope in,and  no questions asked was returned to me not only fast but also a newer model free of charge less shipping. 2-I won't argue that there are other optic companies that may be a little clearer in low light but in comparison to Swarovski and Leica spotting scopes the difference is minimal enough that for what you pay for "higher brands" doesn't equal what you gain in low light conditions. My opinion is that Vortex Optics are in the category with the big boys in quality and the price is set at an affordable rate. Their warranty alone is worth the buy, it being second to none. #vortexnation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I bought my spotting scope about 8 months ago and love the clarity of it and how easy it is to focus on animals. 5 mins out of the box saw three bull elk over 2 miles in a snow storm so I am very pleased with it. Thank you Vortex for making a awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value and quality I used this product for the first time @ 1250 yards. It was more than suitable for the task. I would have no problems using it for shots out to a mile and beyond. No regrets and as always vortex warranty makes it a no worry product to use in any environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase I got this spotting scope couple months ago and love it. I use it while out scouting for deer and goats here in AK and can really get a good view of an animal to see if it's worth putting a stalk on. Great product and will continue to buy Vortex products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this thing! I bought this spotting scope for a Persian Ibex hunt in the Florida mountains in Deming, NM. This scope worked just as well if not better than what I expected. I also purchased a phone scope, window mount and tripod and had absolutely no issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality product at a good price Overall a good product. Light and quick to focus and carry. Not 100% as clear as I would prefer but a quality product at a good price. I do wish they used universal mounts for their tripods so you could go from one series to the next

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have on every hunt I go on! Most people think this scope is too heavy to pack everywhere but I don't cause that's what to do. It's been the best investment to my hunting equipment thus far. It's perfectly clear and heavy duty. I count on having it forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price This is my first spotting scope and I have been extremely happy. I have noticed when I look through my buddies Razor HD he has better low light viewing so I will be upgrading in the future. Very great product for the price.
