Re: Angled or Straight Spotting scope?
For me, always having had and used straight spotters the angled spotter feels very awkward to use and I struggle to get on target quickly.
One of my best friends is an angled spotter user. It's all he has ever had and used and wouldn't have anything else but he does get on target much quicker than I do when he is looking thru my straight one.
IMHO, they both have their pros and cons and more than anything it's all in what you get used to. But, I do believe it is easier for a "angled user" to acquire the target easier/quicker with a straight than it is for a "straight user" when using an angled.
