Diamondback HD 16-48x65 (Straight) is rated out of 5 by 20.
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 lowlight—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 James G from For going to the range, spotting game off my front or back porch, or in the pick up while checking out the farm, the scope performs well. I purchased the straight rather than the angled scope as it was easier on my neck. Nine times out of ten I am in sitting or in a prone position, so it's more convenient to move my head to the side rather than moving my body to position my head over the scope. Yes, I would recommend this spotting scope to others, if it's something that suits their needs as it does mine. But, you just need to remember to weigh the pro's and con's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Steven S from Not bad, for what it is So, this is NOT a top of the line, $3000 optic; while the image quality is actually really good for it's price point, this is definitely built to a price point. My chief complaints are that the magnification adjustment is much too loose, and the focus adjustment is much too tight in that it would be easy to pull the scope off target while trying to get the focus perfectly dialed. Now, with the criticisms out of the way, here's the strong points: it's NOT a $3000 optic. If you're not hunting out west & spotting mountain goats on a distant ridgeline, or if you're going to primarily be using this for spotting bullet holes at the range, there are much worse decisions you could make when it comes to a spotting scope. If this is your price point, this scope is definitely the way to go.
