Regardless of that the Razor is FFP and Jeff wants SFP.
No, you're quite right. We haven't tested a Razor. I typed that reply late last night and I should have read what supercrossbmx69 said properly!
The other Vortex models we've tested have looked good in good light, but their low light performance, especially glare into a low angle sun really let them down. We notice this a lot in "relatively new manufacturer" scopes. Its as if stray light issues take a lot of experience to overcome or something. We just finished testing the Eliminator III which I though stacked up really good until the low angle sun test - whiteout!
Anyway, I'll chase our Vortex agent now to get a Razor to test asap!
The only FFP scope I'd have is one like the March with the tapered reticle that doesn't get any fatter as you zoom in. Very clever idea.
