The Vortex Diamondback 20-60x80 Angled Spotting Scope is their middle of the road line of optics, and at $500, I wouldn’t say it’s inexpensive. The Vortex Diamondback has clarity that rivals spotting scopes of $1500 or more. I am sure if you had the Vortex Diamondback in the field next to one of the scope three or four times more expensive you would notice a difference, but would it be enough to spend the extra $1000 or more?
You will have to decide that, but here at Team Whiskey, we have many outdoor endeavors and so much gear we would like to have. Saving $1000 gets us another piece of gear or two we need.
