Overview

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 from Bright and beautiful! Just received this scope and put it side by side my older diamondback 20-60x80 scope and the new one, although heavier and larger, has a much better picture. Much brighter and more clear. Love the upgrade!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kid proof for sure I bought this scope for some light hunting but mostly hiking and animal spotting. It sits in front of our huge plate glass window over looking our 6 archer back yard. My kids have cross threaded the eye piece cover. I sent it back and Vortex fixed it in less than 2 weeks. The day I got it back my daughter unthreaded the eye piece and destroyed it trying to hide her mistake. I sent it back and once again Vortex fixed it ASAP. I have had this on deer, bear and elk hunts. This thing is solid. It doesn't look as good as the higher priced scopes and doesn't have a replaceable eye piece like the higher priced scopes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precisely Made After searching and reading up on many different major brands of spotting scopes, I had no other reasons not to choose the Vortex (DB). I received this scope as a Christmas present from my wife and kids and once I had in my hand on Christmas day, I was observing it inch by inch and I am extremely pleased with what I see as for how it is built in terms of durability, stability and features such as helical focus. The eyepiece seems very solid and precisely made along with every component on the entire scope. I took out the day after Christmas to our local mountains glassing for elk and deer and I was extremely impressed with the clarity, sharp image, contrast and overall HD image. I know many outdoorsmans complain about some equipment being slightly on the heavy side but to me sometimes slightly heavier is good. This scope is very stable when on tripods. When I had some crosswinds it the canyons, it was not moving at all looking at long distances unlike my older and lighter scope that I had from 15 years ago. To me every ounce of this scope is quality. Good job Vortex and thank you!!
