    Default Vortex

    A friend of mine shoots for Vortex. After looking through his binos I can see why he stopped shooting for Nikon. They are great optics!

    Default Vortex

    I remember last summer with the help of my Vortex Vultures I defeated the 3DShoots man himself. Of course that was the last and only time that happened. I cherish the memory.

    Purchase a set of Viper Binos last year for 3D and couldn't believe the quality and clarity of them. Infact like them so much I turned around and bought Vortex scopes for my rifles too. Couldn't be happier with all their products.

    My brother used to sell Swarovski optics when he had his store. That is how I came to own a pair of Swaros and have always loved them.

    I was at a 3d shoot a couple years ago and Vortex had a display of their binos and scopes for people to check out. I half heartedly picked up a pair thinking they "might be OK"........remember this is coming from someone wearing an $1700 pair on swaros around his neck. I was amazed at the quality of the their binos and the clarity and brightness! I set a pair of Vortex on top my swaros (10x42's) and did a side-by-side comparison. I honestly could not see any difference..........and I tried REAL hard LOL!

    I have a few friends that are now staffers for Vortex. I wouldn't hesitate to give up my swarovskis for a pair of Vortex. No hesitation whatsoever! They are simply that good!
    It would be my honor to someday have a staff position with Vortex.

    Vortex has fast became a big name in the 3-d tournament circuit. Customer service and quality optics is a big reason.

    An ideal for Vortex that I would like to see would be a stabilization button added to their line of Binoculars and also added to the Rangefinders when they come out.

    I've read rave reviews about Vortex service after the sale.

    hmmm....I have never actually used Vortex that I know of, I don't buy a lot of equipment so I don't have the chance to try a lot of different brands. BUT next time I am in the market for binos, I will definately be looking at the Vortex line. Sounds like a great company

    Default Vortex Optics

    My first encounter with a Vortex Binocular, is when a friend o' mine was shooting with it.. He was using a Hurricane Compact 10 x 28.. I, having come from a society which whole heartedly accepted bushnell scopes (i live in Malaysia) saw the Hurricane as something totally new and cool! I tried it out, and saw the unparalelled difference, compared to bushnell.. Since then, i've been dying to get one, but i gotta find work, and fast..

    I gotta add to Vortex's motto - May The Force of Optics Be With You!

    Default I need to find some Vortex's!

    Wow, you don't see this kind of positive responses about Customer Service much anymore. I'm in the market for some binoculars and had not even heard of Vortex. I was contemplating some of the Nikon line, but clearly from what people have said here, I need to check out he Vortexs.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Now I've got to find a local dealer so that I can see them firsthand.

    Default Vortex

    Back in mid '07 I was in the market for a new pair of bino's and I had narrowed it down to the Vortex Vulture 10x50 or the Nikon Monarch 10x42...Buddy of mine had the Nikon's I checked them out, they were ok...But I heard all the good reports on AT about the Vortex & their great customer service so I ended up buying a pair of Vortex Vulture 10x50's from Jayhawk Optics and I've been super impressed with them. I've used them for everything from 3-d, whitetail hunting and mule deer hunting out west...I love them.

When my binoculars arrived I thought wow these look pretty nice for $200 glass(keep in mind I had been using $2000 glass for the last 5 years). I then took them outside and startd glassing the hillsides around my house, I could not believe how well they performed.

    Well off to northern Quebec, I arrived in camp and experienced weather that was everything from 60 and sunny to 19 and blowing snow. I used those diamonbacks for the 5 day hunt and glassed for hours at a time. I was totally satisified and never once wished that I had my Swarovskis.

    I returned from Canada and posted on Archery talk about my experience with Vortex, I was contacted by Tim Austin (vortex optics) he told me that he loved my review and the pictures. Tim asked if Vortex could use my photos in their 08 catalog,,,of course I said heck yeah!!

    I emailed Tim the pictures and about a week later I received a very nice package from Vortex full of very nice gear. I was then contacted by Vortex and offered a position on their Field Staff, of course I said yes.

    In January 08 Tim contacted me again and asked if I would like to attend the ATA show in Indy( this is a non public show and tickets are hard to get) again I jumped at the chance, I got to meet Tim at the show and was introduced to some of the other fine folks at Vortex.

    Words can not express how proud I am to be a member of their team. Vortex is a top notch company, ran by top notch individuals!

    Their products are top shelf and their warranty is second to none. If there is a problem it will be taken care of.
