Re: Spotting scope - angled or straight?

I would say angled, as at the bench I can spot for myself. In the field I must admit I have not ever used a spotting scope, just my Leupold Binoculars.

Re: Spotting scope - angled or straight?

I have only had one angled spoting scope and it was one of the original heavy, boxy
Swaro. All my other spotting scopes, of which there have been B&L, Bushnell, Leupold Gold Ring 12x40-60, have been straight. Old habits are hard to break.

I use a straight because it easier for me to find what I was looking at thru my binoculars.

Re: Spotting scope - angled or straight?

My spotting scope is straight. Why? Because that's what was on sale at the time. I know that's the worst reason but it worked for me at the time. Sportsman's Warehouse was closing their Vegas Valley stores and the spotter I bought I got for 40% off their regular price. BTW it's a Nikon20X60X80.

Re: Spotting scope - angled or straight?

I prefer the straight spotting scopes simply for the fact that i use it 75% of the time for hunting and vegetation usually forces me to set up the scope high enough where an angled scope might not be as comfortable for my needs.

Straight for Hunting and Spotting for long range shooting events with multiple targets
at different distances and spread across a course of fire


Angled for the bench if you are on one target most of the time .

Straight. But, I wish I had an angled one for the bench.
