Pretty hard to beat!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on August 27, 2013
I wanted to purchase a spotting scope for hunting in the West (mule deer, elk, antelope). Not having $2000/$3000 + to purchase a Swarovski, Leica or Zeiss and wanting something new and HD, my search for a mid level spotting scope brought me to the Vanguard HD 82A. After purchasing this spotting scope and using it for a week in the mountains, I have been nothing but pleased with this spotting scope. The price was incredible and came with a free Vanguard tripod with the purchase.

My purchase for a new spotting scope came down between a Vortex Razor HD 20x60x85, Vortex Viper HD 20x60x80 and the Vanguard HD 20x60x82A. I was able to take all three outside the store and look at an object 700 yards away at mid day on a sunny day. All three scopes were very close in image quality and would be exceptional in the field. Trying to say there was a clear winner would be impossible. What made the decision easy for me was price and a $179 tripod included in the deal. At $1599 for the Razor, $799 for the Viper and $545 (with coupon) for the Vanguard HD 82A with tripod, $50 mail in rebate for the scope, $25 mail in rebate for the tripod, the decision was simple to make.

Warranty: Vortex has one of the best in the industry...no questions asked. The Vanguard came with their Premium Lifetime Warranty. As Vanguard says: The Premium Lifetime Warranty does not cover theft, loss of product, deliberate damage, unauthorized repair damage, modification or disassembly of the product. In other w...

Very nice Scope for this price

I have only used it for "trial" viewing so far, but I'm impressed. Even at 60x the view is clear and bright--almost to the edges. It seems more like Japanese optics than China ones!...

Happy Digiscoper

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on July 23, 2013
I bought this scope from Optics Planet in early June & I liked it so much I bought an Endeavor ED 8x42 set of binoculars to go with it. Use the scope for digiscoping & as stand alone scope. At first I was a little uncomfortable making the choice on this scope because it is so new it has almost no reviews. However Endeavor binoculars were so highly rated it convinced me to take the chance.I already have my rebate check. Here is a link to some experienced bird forum users discussing high quality of this scope:

(or go to birdforum.net and search for Vanguard Endeavor HD scope) I am extremely happy with this purchase.
Pros: Image quality, fit & feel, quick customer service on $50 rebate; reasonably priced, high quality digiscoping adapter PA202
Cons: Not many reviews so it is hard to get comfortable with purchase...

Vanguard Endeavor HD 82A Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 23, 2013
I used it on the 1000 yard shooting range and found the clarity on target to be exceptional in various lighting conditions and temperatures. It performed as well or better than others on the range that were 3-4 times the cost.
Pros: Top quality optics
Cons: Would have liked to purchase the accessory for adapting my digital camera on the same purchase...
