    Vortex Razor spotting scope

    Looking at the Vortex Razor 22-48x65, anyone using or used one? Or similar priced spotters (or cheaper) worth looking at?
    Hard to find a good spotter second hand....

    Every spotter is subjective depending on the persons eyes. Iíve looked through tons of them. All have their pros and cons. I really like my kowa prominar 664. Kowa is very popular in target shooting and birding. Pretty much the same optics wise as a swaro ats. Everyone who owns a swaro will probably poo hoo me because they spent a lot on one but Iíve had people look down both side by side and there is no difference. Both are very good. Kowa is Slightly lighter and only $2000. On the + for the razor the eye box is a bit bigger I think. Canít comment on Jeremyís sightron. Iíve only looked through one of their top 24x scopes against a nxs nightforce And the nightforce was definitely better, clearer in the glass. I looked through he bushnell elite spotter on the weekend and although clear much like the Lrs scopes all white targets have CA shimmer around them which is annoying.
    The vortex viper hs version is pretty nice and are a bit cheaper. We use a couple given to us by vortex for a match and were pretty nice.
    Zeiss has got a new conquest one out which I can hook you up on. Havenít seen one but look pretty nice.
    I have looked through 2 razors both were nice and similar to my kowa. I can recommend the kowa because I have plenty of time behind it validating bucks and spotting on longrange targets. Iíve done the same with a swaro and it does exactly the same.
