    New Vortex Razor HD

    I'm looking to purchase some new binos.
    I've been looking at those new vortex, razors in
    Hd. I've seen where they retail at $1200?
    Are they worth that price? I'm thinkin I should
    Just buy swarovski instead. What do you guys
    Think?

    I have Cabelas Euro I really like them. There under a grand. Plus it really hard for me justify spending 2000 on a pair of binos.

    I hear you there skybuster132! Have you ever compared them to vortex razors? Do the Cabelas euro have a good warranty? Thanks for your comment!

    +1 Skybuster! I love my ($799) Cabelas Euro's also. My hunting partner has the Vortex binos and they are nice, but my Euro's will compete with the Swaro SLC's any day. Cabelas warranty on these binos is "lifetime" and any time Ive had issues with anything purchased there, they have always made it right. But if I were to spend 1200 bucks......Id get the Swaro's. Great Binos!!!!!!

    Thanks guys this is good information! I did some research on the Cabelas Euro's wow They have alot of good reviews. I'm thinking ill go with the Cabelas Euro's. Have any of you guys used the 2X doubler with the Cabelas Euro's, does it work good? Thanks again

    Have you looked into any of the nikon optics. I have a pair of their Monarch ATB and for the $350 I have been very impressed. I have friends that have spent way more on Zeis and Swaro and for the price difference I don't that much of a difference in the optic.

    If I were you in your budget I'd look at the Monarch X. They can be found for much lower than their retail price. This past fall I compared my new Leica 10x42s ultravids to my buddy's Monarch X's in comparable power. They are great glass for the money and very light. I'm still saying the Leicas are better but there's a part of me that thinks this may be overcompensation for the substantially higher price tag. They have to be better right? I think the Monarch X's can be had in the $350 range with the right deal. Up to $500 I think they're still a great deal.

    I found my Leupold 10x50 Olympics on ebay new in the box for $250 and have been very impressed with them. They only weigh 26oz and the clarity and light gathering are as good as I've seen under $550. I still want to find a good used set of 10x42 Zeiss classics someday, these are nice but I love those binoculars. I like the old style rubber eyepiece better than the new spin-up ones.

    I have a pair of Vortex Razors and I'm looking to up grade to the new HD Razors.
    My buddy bought a pair of Euros about 3 years ago. We had to compare all of our binos side by side. We had my Razors, his Euros, and another buddy brougth his Swarovski SLC. The Swaro's definatly had the other 2 beat for clarity and edge to edge clearness. The other 2 were pretty close to the same.
    PM me if you're interested in some Razors.
