For this review, we taking a look at what we consider as the best 3 options available for the archery hunter; the Leica Rangemaster 1000-R, the Leupold RX-1000i TBR, and the Vortex Ranger 1000. We’ll be comparing them based on optical quality, fast ranging ability, a responsive scan mode, good ergonomics, and angle compensation.
I have over 8 years of hunting experience behind a 50mm spotting scope, and during that time I have come to believe that most hunters should be packing these small spotters, despite their drawbacks. Here are my thoughts on Vortex's 50mm offering.
I have been using the Promaster 6160 for the last 3 years and it has been a great pan head for me. The Vanguard is better in every way, smoother adjustments, locking adjustments, locking quick release plate, more compact and LIGHTER by 2 oz!
If you've never used a tripod to stabilize your binoculars, you're missing out on what your optics are truly capable of. And this Rapid Release Adapter makes it easy to pair and quickly detach the binoculars and tripod.
