"Vortex Viper HD Spotter"

My step dad has been using an old Bushnell scope for the last 10 years and it leaves much to be desired to say the least. He has been wanting a new scope for some time and doesn't have the money for a Top 3 scope.

I did some checking and found the new Vortex Viper HD online and it had some great reviews. He decided that he liked the specs and would give it a try. He ended up getting it from Jake's archery in Orem and I told him I would pick it up for him.

I was very impressed with the scope. I have a 20-60x65 Swarovski HD and it doesn't compare with that of course, but it was also $2,000 less at $549. For the price it is great. I would compare it to a Leupold Gold Ring or Meopta class of scope. He got the 15-45x65. It is designed a lot like my Swarovski with a lot of the same features.

It has a rubber type coating on it. It has a collar on it so that you can spin the scope to get a different angle on a tripod or window mount. This scope came with a nice neoprene cover that is just like the Cabela's scope skins cover that I bought for my Swarovski for $40. A nice little bonus.

The dual focus is very smooth and easy to use. It also has a built in sun shade. Overall fit and finish was great. The eye relief is great compaired to scopes in it's price range.

I would highly recommend this scope to anyone that is looking for a good scope with a great warrenty and at a great price.
