Any of those will work fine but the Kowa is the best bang for the buck and quite close to the Swarovski in terms of performance.

Best 60+mm spotter for me?

Post by hammy on Sun Nov 08, 2009 1:20 am

Hi all.

I am looking for a new spotting scope for hunting. I am really just looking for the best glass and warranty in the price range. So what scope out of these would you recommend? I will be wanting a 20-60x zoom eye piece for looking at trophy potential and also a 30 or 40x wide angle eye piece for glassing. I also don’t wear glasses. Glassing distances are likely to range from 400 yards to 1.5 miles.

I was looking at...
Kowa 663
Swarovski 65mm(non-hd)
Nikon Field scope IIIED 60mm

I was looking at the Nikon first but am unsure now and leaning towards the Kowa. Is the Swarovski worth the extra money with out HD?
