I went and looked at some spotting scopes today including the RedField Rampage and after all my looking and talking to the sales persons I decided to stick with the NIKON PROSTAFF 16-48x65. I felt it was the brightest, felt like it would be the easiest to pack in, and felt like it was better quality than the others I looked at in that price range. After talking to the sales persons I realized that I needed something that would gather enough like early in the mornings and late in the evening therefore making my decision final on the Nikon. The others were great scopes just this one meets my needs. Now all I have to do is convince my wife that it is a necessity to buy this scope and it will provide for us!!!
