BreakdownFully multi-coated lenses increase light transmission by using multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces. Roof-prism construction delivers greater durability and a more compact size. High-definition, extra-low-dispersion lenses with a phase-correction coating enhance resolution and contrast. They're also coated with scratch-resistant ArmorTek™ that repels oil and dust. Rubber armor provides a sure, nonslip grip and adds shock-absorbing durability. Multiposition eyecups twist up and down for custom eye relief. Includes tethered lens covers, neck strap and padded carry case.
First, my old glass is a 20 year old pair of Nikon Monarch 10x42 that I have used effectively to find deer. I had thought about spending the money on a higher priced pair of bino's like the Razors but I figured with technology today a $500 dollar pair would be a huge step above my 20 year old Nikon. So far this set of Vortex viper is far more clear than I had expected. I usually hunt large open mountain areas that require a glass to see a far distance and I usually use my spotter most of the time but I feel that the extra 12 power and clarity will give me more of an edge finding game. Therefore, I might use these binos more than I used the old Nikon. On the steadiness of going to a 12 power over the 10, I have not noticed a difference. Sitting and resting my arms on the knees I have found the Vipers are just as steady as using the 10 power binos. The harness that comes with the Vipers in my opinion sucks because a hate that the lid opens to my chest and i can't get the thing to ride flat against my chest. But I didn't buy these binos for the harness and it is now a storage for my old Nikons. I don't think anyone that hunts large open terrain would go wrong with a set of Vortex Viper 12x50.
Awesome totally will recommend.
Vortex always has great products.
Just got through a mule deer rifle hunt, used these new Viper HDs alot and they performed very well! Especially on a Vortex Pro GT tripod. Great eye relief,clarity and no sun glare also got to give kudos to GoHunt for a quick and awesome buying purchase. Definitely will be back for gear in the future
Very clear for a mid priced binocular. Gathers light well when it is getting dark. Built very well! No complaints.
