    I own both, and prefer the strait eyepiece. Why? I wear glasses, and tend to get a better focus. But I also used the the angled one for years with out a hitch

    straight is what works for me.

    when hunting I aim it in direction of the pray and find it pretty easy. To find the pray while looking down is awkward.

    When looking into severe angles whether uphill or downhill is not a problem with the straight type.

    Angled makes it much easier for one to spot their own shots on the target while laying prone.
