Video Product Review: Vortex Viper HD Binos and Spotting Scope
The difference between a successful hunt and getting skunked can be simply the difference between seeing an animal and not seeing an animal. The same is true for getting a big trophy animal or just getting some meat for the freezer.
Viper HD Binoculars Nearly every hunter in the west knows the feeling of defeat when you spend all day beating the bushes trying to run across a deer, only to spend your entire hunt chasing a ghost. A better solution in the west is to get up high and let your glass do your work for you. For the guy spending 1-2 weeks in the field hunting each season or 20-30 days out of season scouting his unit, the Viper HD binos from Vortex can save you hours of wasted time looking for an animal. Featuring fully multi-coated lenses with high-density, extra-low dispersion glass, not only will the Viper help you find an animal more easily, but will give you a good idea of the quality of the critter within shooting range. The HD glass provides excellent clarity – delivering optical performance that knocks on the door of top-tier options, but doesn’t carry the price tag to go along with it. The BaK4 roof prism has a dialectric phase coating to enhance color clarity and accuracy. Argon purging ensures your binos stay fogproof - no matter the weather conditions.
Viper HD 20-60x85 Spotting Scope While a pair of binoculars are a must-have for hunting in the west, a good spotting scope can prevent you from spending hours chasing a deer just to discover he isn’t something that you want to shoot. From my office in Cedar City, I can see an American flag 2,590 yards away with my binos. I can tell that it is an American flag and that it is waving. With a decent spotting scope, like the Viper HD, I can count the stars on the flag. A good spotting scope can let you know in advance if that elk you are seeing through your binos is worth the hours of walking it will take to get you in rifle range.
Featuring the same glass and coatings as the Viper HD binos, the Viper HD spotting scope has excellent light gathering and clarity. The ArmorTek coating protects the delicate optics and makes it easier to grip in damp weather. Together, the Viper HD binos and spotting scope provide the hunter with an affordable way to kill more and better-quality animals without breaking the bank.
