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,

Re: Spotting scopes...HELP!

My opinion is that swarovski makes the best glass in the world.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

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.
