Spotting scopes...HELP!

Here is the deal: I can get a Swarovski ATS-65 with a 20-60 zoom for the same price as a Kowa TSN-821M with a 20-60 zoom. I'm getting a special deal on the Swarovski but NO special deal on the Kowa. The price of each is literally dollars apart. The big question is:

Price aside, which is the better scope for matches that I might be shooting up to 1000yds?

Thanks for your patience and advice. This is alot of money for me and I want to make the right decision.

shoot straight,
Keith

I have both the 65 and the 80 HD.

My opinion is that swarovski makes the best glass in the world.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: Spotting scopes...HELP!

I'm biased because I sell Swarovski among others.If you get the Swarovski, you have the option of upgrading to BigEyz. It's a no brainer for me.
