Diamondback HD 16-48x65 (Angled) is rated out of 5 by 45.
Glassing out west demands an HD optic, but other systems can't get you the clarity you need to see a tail twitch in low light, or pick a tine out of dense cover. The redesigned Diamondback HD spotting scopes have all the horsepower the long-distance hunter needs, and they excel in low light - right when you need it most. We've also streamlined the exterior for a sleeker, snag-free profile, building in a helical focus wheel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gap0448 from Amazing low light clarity I sent in my 15 years old Nomad for a broken eyepiece for repair (I had already super glued the tripod mount while on a hunt several years back). I was so surprised when my spotting scope returned and was a new Diamondback HD 16-48X65 (Angled). I can not be happier with the customer service of Vortex. This is why my rangefinder and binos are all Vortex. I was blown away by the difference 15 years of technology can make. If you are a recreation hunter or bird watching you can not beat this spotting scope. I have looked through other brands at a higher price that does not have as good of clarity as the Diamondback HD. Thank you Vortex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blake0116 from Love the fit and finish! I just received my 16-48x65 and I am very impressed with the scope. Overall the finish and sleek design are really nice. This is my first spotter I've owned and can't wait to get out in the backcountry with it. The size and weight are also awesome. Lots of power in a small light weight package! It'll pair nicely with my 10x50 crossfire binos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paul C from Excellent Scope and Great Vortex Service I had a problem with the scope not working right out of the box, sent it back immediately. Then the night before leaving for the National Matches, the scope failed again (no focus). I was sick, I called Vortex while still at the range, 25 minutes before closing, explained what happened and told him I was headed to the Nationals in the early morning. Realizing they had no chance of getting a replacement scope to me, they called my local Cabelas and asked them to give me a new scope, even though I had purchased it here. After a few minutes on the phone with Vortex, Cabelas exchanged the scope and i was headed to the National Matches at Camp Perry. You cannot beat that Customer Service!!! Thank you Vortex!!
