    I have used both and prefer the angled over the straight. If your spotter has the collar that allows you to rotate the scope then it is no problem out of the truck window. Try looking up hill with a straight spotter for awhile and you will appreciate how much easier it is to do with an angled one. I just think the angled spotters with the collar such as the zeiss are more versatile.

    I have used "straight" for many years during hunting season, but I have an angled spotter for prone target matches.

    I like the angled eyepiece personaly I find it much more comforatable to look down and glass for long periods of time than to look straight forward. And to look up a steep mountain it is easier as well. I do agree that out of a truck it doesnt work. I hear with the swaros though if you turn them to the side you can use them out of the truck I havn't tried yet. and as for as locating game with them it takes a little getting use to, I have to refamilierize myself every year but ounce I am I can get on game just as fast as anyone.

    I was going to ask that question but you just answered it for me. Looks like I'll also be buying a straight scope. Thanks for the info and insight!
