Has anyone tried any of the range of Binoculars that Vortex do ? After having my Swarovski   stolen out of my Truck i was a bit reluctant to spend alot of money on another pair.I had a look at all different makes and magnifications and with out being able to look through all the brands it was a mine field. I finally settled for a Pair of Vortex Vipers 10 x 50 mag and i am really pleased with them they are very clear can't fault they are well built can't fault they are comfortable in your hand can't fault and i would go as far as to say i can not tell any difference looking through them as to my Swarovski so all is good they were a 1/4 of the price as Swarovski and best of all no matter if they go wrong you drop them or scratch the lense Vortex are offering a unconditional no charge  repair or replacement guarantee so if all is as it seems i am a happy chap with my purchase. :thumbs:

No but I am looking for a pair, not a bad price if they are as good as you reckon.

Yeah, bought a pair of 10x42 Vipers a few months back, about £380 new. They're spot on! hard to tell the difference between them and the premium brands and they have the best warranty going.

Glad you are getting on well with them BH.

I bought one of their monoculars a while back. Stunning quality for what it is.

I have a pair of Swarovski EL 8.5x42 and a mate bought a pair of Vortex razor binoculars. Comparing the two I was very impressed with the Vortex. So impressed I ended up buying a Vortex Razor spotting scope instead of the Swaro!!!

Reading this i ordered a pair of 8x32s and for the money they are very good. Strap is a bit flimsy but no big deal and the case is better than i have

paid a lot more for with other Bino's.

I was spyiing a fox snare this morning and someone phoned me set my leupold bins on the bonnet of the truck ...then headed away pigeon shooting ...shot pigeons for a few hours then headed back home for lunch and ran over the top of something ...stopped and reversed to see what it was ....bxstaxrd I had driven about a mile with them on the bonnet and they dropped off and I had driven over them
Had a look through a vortex scope last week on my mates 222/50 and was impressed for the price so will have a look at the binos

I've just bought some vortex scopes, 6.5 x 20 x 50 cannot fault them as good as any top end scope I've had before, and the guarantee is second to none.

 

Binoculars next from them, cannot see a reason to buy any other brand to be honest, quality goods for value prices.

Got a pair of minox 10x52 binos and have to say they are very good. My mate has a pair of zeiss 10x42 and he agrees the Minox are just as good and clear. But far cheaper
