After recently breaking my leicca binnoculars [my fault] i needed a reasonable to good pair as a stand in untill my own pair were mended and after a few hours searching i came across vortex optics.
After a google search for reviews i soon found the companies flag ship model the VORTEX RAZORS that were being compaired with the likes of swarovskis leiccas and zeiss and came out with a highly recomended.
I think it was on a bird wathching site, anyway a call or two later and i had tracked down a gun shop that was just starting to stock part of the vortex range so i popped over for a look.
Well to say i was impressed would be an understatement they had a nice clear crisp view and a solid build quality and with the 10 by 42 retailing at around £400 seemed exceedingly good value.
After a quick chat i was alowed to try a demo pair for the evening with the previso that if broken or dammaged then i would have to buy so puting the rifle in the truck off i went for a proper field test.
To cut a long story short they passed with flying colours and will not be going back on the shelf at the shop.
With money being a bit hard to come by for a lot of us at the moment and some compairable makes asking four figure sums it might just be worth giving them a look [no pun intended]
