Hey guys thanks for the info, we hunt out of elevated houses in the early AM and late PM so low light is my main priority, I have actually missed being able to shoot a nice buck due to not being able to identify until he was out of range. Scott just for that offer you have got in my good graces, when I get ready to really start looking I will probably take you up on that offer. I have no vortex dealer around here. I have been reading on exit pupil diameter and the 10x50's are sounding better, even the 8.5x42's sound pretty good, longest distance I need is 1000 yards and that is the way max 600 is more realistic. I hunt mostly open country CRP fields. Thanks guys.

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.
You're not supposed to look at the sun... :eek: Just kidding!

I just sent my 7x42 swar. in because over the last 15 years they dont seem as bright as they used to. I am getting harder to impress also. They said that many small scratches on the lens were the cause and it would cost $160 for new lens. Not bad, but not free? Wonder why?

Thank you sir. Anytime I can be of assistance just let me know. After seeing your requirements, I'm convinced you wuill be quite thrilled with the Razor's, and have lots of $$ left over for ammo and other stuff!

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,

I appreciate that, but I don't want to pay someone else to test the optics. I've put them through their paces and I'm already convinced of their quality and value, which is why I recommend them. If you were interested in the Razor's I would give you a very good deal. If the fact you never looked through a pair is holding up your purchase then the offer stands.

Scott

Brother,

I'm a veteran of selling IOR optics on Sniper's Hide. You'll have to sharpen your spear a little more to penetrate this thick hide.

Scott

Before you shell out thousands of dollars for glass take a look through some Alpen Rainiers next to some Liecas or swaros. You might be surprised!
