I feel how well a scope tracks through the whole range of adjustment and how well the point of impact stays the same through the magnification range is far more important than clarity. To be honest I cant tell all that much difference in clarity between a whole lot of scopes. Id much rather pay for durability and repeatabilty than clarity. I think people tend to put way too much emphasis on how clear a scope is rather than more important things.
I think it should go in order of durability, tracking, repeatability, then clarity IMO.
Ive read that the weavers have been very well at these functions and are built very solid.
But if the Viper passes the test Ill keep it. Ive now fallen for the scope bug so Im sure Ill find a reason to buy more
