Fair statement. However, there is a problem with it. Save and upgrade to a Nightforce is all well and good but look through a March or US Optics or Schmidt and Bender and keep saving.... How long do you save? How long can you wait? What do you consider the ideal compromise?They are good until you look through a Nightforce. Will make you want to save and upgrade, thats what happened to me...
I use my bino's, never a spotting scope because the **** thing is too touchy anyway.SidecarFlip,
Whats wrong with upgrading overtime? Vortex to Nightforce to US Optics to S.B.?? Its like anything else, buy what you can afford and use until you are no longer satisfied or you can afford to upgrade. Its only human nature to want what we cannot have.
Yes Vortex is good bang for the buck but my PST FFP was not adequate for detail in the field such as judging an elk or deer at longer distances where my NF or SB is crystal clear and lets me leave my spotting scope at home vs having to lug in my pack.
