Razor® HD 27-60x85 Spotting Scope

Simply one of the finest spotting scopes you can buy, the top-tier Razor HD spotting scope competes at the highest level of performance. The sophisticated triplet apochromatic lens system delivers high-definition views across the entire field of view—no color fringing, degradation of resolution or dilution of color fidelity.

HD premium high density extra-low dispersion glass lens elements are carefully selected and precision-crafted to exacting standards for true-to-life images of startling clarity, resolution and color accuracy. Exterior lenses are protected by ArmorTek—an ultrahard, scratch-resistant compound that repels oil, dirt and the corrosive salts of fingerprints. Fully multi-coated with scratch-resistant XR coatings for extremely high resolution and optimal light transmission. A die-cast magnesium alloy body with strategically-placed rubber armoring ensures ultimate strength, durability and lightweight performance. 100 percent waterproof, fogproof (purged with argon gas), dustproof and shockproof construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid as a rock This scope has helped pick out big game for us well over 1500 yards with clarity and excellence. I've used both the angled and straight and that is personal preference for your needs. You will not be disappointed with the clarity and edges even in low light. Early morning and evening hunting just got real. We're picking out animals well before the naked eye can see in low light. The zoom is smooth and the edging at high magnification does a great job. ​

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best products you can purchase! I have been hunting for many years and have had lots of different types of scopes, binoculars, and spotting scopes. Nothing compares to the Vortex line up of all there glassing products. Not only for the price but the warrantee that they stand behind. Cant tell you how pleased I have been with all of there products and would recommend Vortex to anyone!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy once...Cry once. I purchased this scope for my upcoming deer hunt and can tell you it was money very well spent. This scope goes above and beyond any others I have tried. It also sits very comfortably with any and all the higher priced name brands out there. If you are thinking about this scope stop thinking and get it in your hands ASAP you will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought this and I don't want to put it down! This spotting scope is a must have if you want the upper hand in finding big game or just enjoy looking at the mountains. I'm having a hard time putting it down! So clear, bright colors and perfect magnification. My motto is buy nice or buy twice. This is a one time purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought for vieweing 300m paper targets Started shooting groups at 300m (330 yds), old spotting scope couldn't get the job done. Razor has no problem! Able to see 223 holes at 300m quite clearly... saves a lot of walking! Could have gone with a target camera I guess, but the spotting scope has soo many other uses.. hunting, wildlife and terrain viewing, birding, etc. So glad I bought it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal spotting scope! I bought this scope recently and immediately put it to work. A-zone is open here in California. These coastal blacktails blend in very well with the landscape. This scopes high definition really allows you to see the seperation. Very impressive, and very affordable for the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing Just picked up this spotting scope and I can't even begin to tell you the difference it's made both at the range and in the field. I'm seeing things I've never seen before. Looking forward to taking this up to Kodiak Island for some Caribou glassing this coming fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this scope I use this in spotting all the animals I hunt. I need clearity, with good images in lower light. The eye relief is perfect. Works perfect with my phone scope pics & videos.

I generally utilize a Badlands 2200 pack and am curious if the 85mm scopes will fit into the spotting scope pocket.  I know the lenses are 85mm in width but what is the overall width of the scope?

Asked by: steclark
The outside diameter of the objective end of the spotting scope is 102 mm.

What criteria do you use to choose angled vs straight eye piece?

Asked by: Steve
Angled vs straight is a personal preference, if asked we typically recommend angled for most uses and straight out of a car window.

Why is it that I can view better with the eyepiece closed rather than open and extended? I do not wear glasses.

Asked by: sdhunt
This has to do with the eye relief of the spotting scope and will vary from person to person based on geometry of your face.

Why doesn't the new Razor HD have the fine and coarse adjustment? Is the helical focus better?

Asked by: Derick
The helical focus system allows for more control because you can use your entire hand on a larger wheel versus just a small knob. When you are adjusting the focus at longer distances the gear ratio in the focus slows it down so you are getting a fine focus without having two focus wheels.
