Vortex Razor HD 27-60x85mm Spotter

By Simon Gillice

Vortex offers an impressive range of optics including scopes, red dot sights, rangefinders, binoculars, monoculars, and spotting scopes. Their top of the line range is the Razor HD series, which includes three spotters: the smaller 11-33x50mm model, the medium 22-48x65mm, and the large 27-60x85mm. All three are offered in either a straight or angled eyepiece configuration.


While I was preparing for a winter tahr mission last year Nik mentioned he had a Vortex Razor HD 27-60x85mm spotter to review and asked if I wanted to take it along. Absolutely, I’ll take it! I was involved in a couple of long range shooting competitions during this review as well, so I used the Razor HD in those also.
