Vortex Optics Razor HD Scope 20-60x 85 w/ Full Size Tripod

Vortex Optics Razor HD Spotting Scope Combo 20-60x 85mm Angled Body Green with Pro GT Tripod Kit $1099.99 and ships for free at Midway. Tripod is full size, not a flimsy table top model. I think this is the old model but so what, still a great deal IMHO. The newer model is $1600 w/o tripod. [EDIT] Tripod alone is $150

I have one of these, and it is a GREAT scope.

I paid $1300 used (very lightly used) for it.

Stop talking about this great deal. I want one but canít afford to spend $1100 right now.

I saw the Vortex tripod and it did not look like anything special. Slik makes great tripods so I'm sure that saved you some $

ok, this is the tripod i bought, again a slik with some customization. good mix between weight and strength/stiffness. i also bought their pig saddle which holds rifles pretty steady, for prs matches and upcoming elk hunt.

I just got mine today and I will have to say that the tripod it comes with is really high quality; it's metal and not polymer. I would say buy this package even if it means charging it to credit. Even paying interest you are ahead. And interest rates are still low.
