That board is warped....lol
They have 4" of ocular relief but it's at minimum magnification. With any scope, no matter what the price point, as you increase magnification, ocular relief decreases and FOV (field of view) decreases as well. Thats how it works.
When any scope seller quotes eye relief, it's always at minimum magnification.
In as much as I have 3 Vipers mounted on various rifles. I have no issue with eye relief at any magnification. Just be apprised that the chance for a black eye increases with magnification and firearm recoil.
Additionally, to say that a Viper is as clear as a Night Force or a Night Force is as clear as a Schmidt and Bender is entirely subjective because each person's eyes are different so each person 'sees' differently, one reason the ocular is adjustable, to 'fine tune' it to an individual's sight perception.
A blanket statement about this is clearer or as clear as that, is purely subjective.
