Hi Scott,
Welcome as a sponsor here and I would like to look threw a pair
to compare them to my Swaros but those are some pretty strong
words saying they can compare to Swaros.
Maybe they can and I am not putting down your product but I have my doubts.
I am a man of little means but when it come to optics I have saved my *****
off to buy the best.
I own 10X42's, 15X56's and a 20-60X65 scope. (Not Cheap)

wfpack14,
Take a closer look at the 10X50 Swaros.
I love my 42"s but if I were to do it again I would get 50's.
That little bit of extra light is worth it.
Mike

Scott, hope you do not take offense to my thoughts

Oh yea,
Here is a thread from another site from a friend who found out just how good Swaros warranty is. http://forums.coueswhitetail.com/for...opic=9544&st=0

    Kahles makes an excellent set also. You may want to check them out as well.

    I have to ask WF.
    What kind of range are you glassing at?
    Out west we do a bunch of glassing at mile or so. (+;))
    If you are going to glass at say 1000 yards than
    you could save some money.
    What are your needs?

    I think Swaro and Kahles have some of the best glass going, and have for about the last three years.

    However, are they over twice as good as the Vortex Razor? They cost over twice as much.

    I say no way.

    Such is subjective, but if I said the Razors were 95% as good optically as the Swavs, at less than half the price, what would you say?

    I would say that is a superior VALUE.

    That's what we are about.

    The Swav warranty is great. but so is the Vortex VIP. I guarantee it.

    I have Vortex service stories too. Few and far between, but all good.

    The Swavs are excellent, but like all European imports, no longer a good value (thank the weak dollar for it).

    wfpack14,

    If you are serious, here is what I propose. Give more your shipping address and credit card info. I'll charge your card $20 and send you the 10x42 or 8x42 Razors. If you aren't happy and feel they are worth every penny, send them back, no harm, no foul (please take good care of them :+)

    If you like them and want to keep them, I'll charge your card for the balance.

    Three day inspection.

    Sound fair?

    Scott

    Scott,
    Would you like to make that offer to me?
    I am not a guide but have several friends who are.
    We can put your optics to the test and would give you/web site
    a review.
    Mike

    That depends. If you are trying to pick an antler out of the trees or bushes at 5 a.m. the swaros would then be worth twice as much and maybe a finger or 2. I have picked stuff up in low light with the swaros that I can never seem to find with my zeiss or leica's. I feel the leica's are super sharp but not as bright as the swaro's. I have looked through the razor's and there sharp but I don't believe they are 95% swaro's or leicas. Just my opinion but when I say swaros are bright I mean they hurt your eyes in the daylight.
