So I think I've pretty much narrowed my Spotter search down to 2 (assuming I get the blessing from the wife!). Through military discounts, the price difference between these 2 is only about $350 with the Meopta being the more expensive.
My first choice, and the one I was about to buy before seeing the new mil discount on the Meopta, is the Vortex Razor HD 16-48x65mm. I really like the fact that it's not the heaviest scope but still has a lot to offer as whatever scope I buy will be going with me on all of my DIY backpacking hunts.
The Meopta is the Meostar S2 HD 30-60x82mm WA. I don't think I've found a bad review of this or the Cabela's Euro which I believe are essentially the same. My biggest concern with this scope is size and weight as it weighs almost a pound more than the Razor and is obviously larger.
I'm curious what experience everyone has had with these 2 and whether or not you think packing the extra pound is worth the benefits of the bigger OBJ scope.
Any and all opinions will be greatly appreciated!
