Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great versatile binos! The Diamondback series is a budget-friendly series from Vortex which will often have a negative connotation when compared to more expensive competitors (anything at a great price usually does). That assumption is wrong! These binos are a great, versatile pair that work great for hunting in the back country. The 12x magnification allows you to glass hillsides far away but don't excessively bounce from a bino harness or strap around the shoulders. From a tripod, they have the power and the wide objective lens to scan large areas but still be able to count and size the tines on that trophy buck. I was pleasantly surprised by their quality, clarity, and brightness from an economical line of Vortex optics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and even better customer service. I started researching binoculars about 2 months ago because I was in the market for a quality pair. I settled on the Diamondback 10x42s but ended up buying the 12x50s because I got such a good deal. This is the best quality binoculars I have ever laid my hands on. Then because I am the way I am and got such a good deal I thought they may be counterfeit. I emailed Vortex with pictures and details of the purchase and they emailed me back at midnight on the weekend assuring me they were authentic. Please if you are in the market for a great product and even better customer service, give Vortex a try and you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Binocular These binoculars are amazing! Not even for the price! The only thing (and I'm being nitpicky here) that would be better is if they were a little lighter, but my experience with binoculars is minimal so I don't have a load of $1,000+ optics lying around at my house. However, if you're looking for a pair that you can bang around the mountains or woods in and they work phenomenally, then these binoculars just might be what you're looking for. Excellent glass, excellent performance, excellent warranty...you cannot go wrong with Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optics and bang for the buck. I did quite a bit of research before buying these and discovered that these were the perfect binoculars for medium to long range glassing. They combine the superior light-gathering capabilities of a 50mm lens with 12X magnification. I just finished birding with them for 8 hours in the overcast/rainy conditions of the Pacific NW and I am extremely pleased with my purchase. One nice touch is the extending eyepiece cups that click into place. I can get my eyes far enough away from the lens to keep them from external fogging in cold & wet conditions. Well done Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features Great binocular in its price range. The magnification is great and was utilized for hunting long range this past season. The glass does seems a little "hazier" at 550 yards compared to a Viper Binocular that a buddy had; but it is two different lines of binoculars with different features and price point. The rubber armor provides a non-slip and makes the binocular feels durable. The focus wheel and eyecups adjusted as it should. I had it in Vortex's Glasspak system and added more convenience and ease of use during archery and rifle backpacking hunts. Overall great bang for the bucks binocular with the magnification and bigger objective lens. No complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp I received these Diamondbacks before the start of spring turkey season. I have since carried them everyday for glassing the open fields and edges along with glassing through the open hardwoods to locate any birds I had yet to see. I have to say these binoculars are very sharp and very clear. The ability to have a good piece of glass to look through is very vital to ensuring you can have a successful hunt. The price of the Diamondbacks sits very well for the average hard working individual who needs a great pair of Binoculars but doesn't want to break the bank !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bino for the Price I am a hunter that grew up hunting whitetail in central PA. I never thought of binos as an important hunting tool due to the big woods and hilly terrain I hunted in. After reading and listening to numerous well respected hunters I decided to spend the money on a good pair. I landed on vortex because of the good reviews, reasonable price and lifetime warranty. I couldn’t be more pleased with the product I received. This reasonable priced bino allowed a person like me access to an incredible hunting tool that I thought was out of my price range. For an entry level hunter, or a long time hunter that has not invested in a good set of binoculars, I can’t think of a better product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Diamondback put the D in DETAILS! I purchased a set of Diamondback 12x50's for a trip to Eastern Montana this past fall. I had a good pair of 8x42's but wanted to see if the additional power was worth it. I can say YES it was! I was able to clearly observe and judge a number of bucks using these binoculars that I wouldn't have been able to with the 8x42 binoculars. The Diamondbacks were crystal clear and allowed me to judge the buck pictured and eventually harvest! Thanks Vortex.
