Re: Long range spotting scope
The Viper HD is a good scope for the money. Is it as good as a Razor, well there would not need to be a Razor if it was as good so I think that answers it's self. For flat land and looking down hill the straight is better IMHO. The angled is very nice for looking uphill and also can be useful by turning sideways on a window mount for spotting out a vehicle window. Much more comfortable but very auckward for finding what you spot.
