Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Game Changer I never go anywhere without this scope. If im in the truck it comes with and I never leave it behind if im hiking. It fits very easily in almost any pack ive put it in (with tripod) it it very easy to spot game from long distance and then hone in on them with great clarity. The phonescope works great with this scope, it it a really great fit and because the HD glass is so clear you can see great through the phone camera. The best part of all is I am able to have a top end optic and know that the company behind it is 100% behind it not just to get a new one if it breaks but in regards to it having just as good of quality as its competitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope I just recently bought one for this years (2017) hunting season. I'm after antelope, elk, and deer so I can use it for all. It's a great scope and it already came in handy for antelope season. The optics are great and clear. I went with the 22-48 because I noticed the 27-60, when you got up in the 60 range, would really pick up the heat waves in the desert. They would almost distort the sight picture, even the 48 power does to some extent but it was really noticeable at 60. They are built like tanks and like always, you can't beat the VIP warranty. This is one of many Vortex scopes and spotting scopes that I own and I see no reason that I would ever change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thats out there Dont have one of these spotters? No? Well you obviously dont like gettin meat on the ground or spotting deer at 3 miles away. This scope has takin my game to the next level. Should be outlawed for this much of an advantage. Absolute best scope for the price. Just when i think I've seen it all vortex steps it up a notch. The glass is so clear and crisp at all power levels. The big focus wheel is easier to turn with bulky gloves on and fine focus is found faster than the previous model. I got the chance to look at swaro side by side with my razor and I couldn't tell the difference. If you haven't bought one yet I highly recommend you pull the trigger on of these bad boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Vortex. I have two different spotting scopes and three different binoculars. I love them. Each year I spend 60 days chasing spring black bear then quickly change into scouting for the fall. I'm an archer and rifleman. Vortex has provided a great product for each of these needs. The 15x50 bino's along with the Razor spotting scope are great for long range shooting. The 10x42 bino's are just right for archery along with the 15x50 bino's as my spotters instead of my Razor. The service department is amazing. They repaired a viper scope for me and had it back in time for a hunt. Incredible speed. They calledpersonally to let me know they received it and then when it was mailed back. I'm vortex for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Else Compares! This was the first spotting scope we had purchased so we did our research and checked out all the options we soon came down to viper for the brand and the hardest part was trying to decided what we would like better the straight or the angled, we went with the angled in the end and I would recommend doing that just about any hunter. But looking through this spotting scope is crystal clear it zooms in nice and easy. The size is perfect it fits in my backpack I am beyond satisfied with this product and I would put it up against any other brand or style and I believe it will out preform the competition. Great well thought out and designed product! With the best warranty for great peace of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! As I sit in my living room focused in on the radio tower 3 miles away atop peavine mnt I'm in awe of the clarity from edge to edge. Thinking to myself that I'm pretty sure I could see a bedded monster if I took it into the field and then a covey of chukar run by... I wish I'd had my camera set up to have gotten that picture. This thing is amazing. The last 5 years I've been acquiring higher end products... is there anything better than the razor? I'm honestly not sure there needs to be! And at this price why would anyone claim to "need" better glass??? It doesn't exist!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing spotting scope I picked up one of these spotting scopes at the closeout of the previous model for an insane deal. The level of detail and clarity I can pick apart is fantastic. I can see the details of the patina of a fence nail at 500 yards like it is right in front of me. I have yet to carry this into the field, but mounted on the Vanguard tripod I have with a quick release, this is sure to be an integral part of my gear list. I am very happy with this product, The only thing i would like to see is an integrated tether for the lens caps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got my money's worth I used this spotting scope extensively this past year mostly mule deer hunting. From scouting to the final kill of my season i racked up hours and hours looking through this scope and I've been very pleased with the quality for the price. I looked at higher priced spotting scopes and couldn't justify the higher price for what little difference I noticed. Thanks vortex for helping me fulfill my dream season with a trophy DIY buck and bull. I have recommended them to others and I will continue to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! Vortex Razor HD 22-48x65 At the Range: I can now find 22 cal holes at 100 yards. In the Field: Incredible edge to edge detail at all magnifications including, low-light conditions. These qualities help when spotting for Deer on brushy California hillsides or observing nesting Bald Eagles. Ergonomics: The Helical Focus ring is easy to access and is smooth and intuitive when focusing (good for arthritic hands). The Rotating Tripod ring allows for simple Eyepiece positioning. Thank You Vortex!
