Viper and Viper HD Spotting Scopes
New for 2011, the Viper is the most complete line of spotting scopes Vortex has ever brought forth. Chose from standard or HD extra-low dispersion glass, angled or straight eyepiece postions, and 65mm or 80mm objective lenses. For long-range observation, the Viper optics put incredible performance at your fingertips. Easily the best way to make trophy selection without putting a mile on your boots.
Our Opinion: These scopes haven't hit the streets as yet, but from all the specs, these should be dynamite glass! We think the 15-45x 65 in HD glass is the model to go with if you plan to carry it on all-day treks. In addition, one cannot usually use more than 40-50x in nature due to wind vibration, mirage, etc., so the 15-45x size looks to be the all-purpose model with incredible clarity - and at a very sweet price.
