Vortex Announces new HD Binoculars in their 2011 lineup

Category : Optics

Vortex announced some changes today to their lineup of 2011 binoculars.  At first glance it appears as though the new Razor Binoculars will be substantially better than the lineup they are replacing based on their new MSRP.  The Vortex Razor Spotting scope has been praised and credited with being on par with the much more expensive Swarovski spotting scope. Maybe these new Razor HD Binoculars will be on a similar level as other high end German optics.  Watch our website for a review of these new binoculars when they become available.

Vortex also announced a completely new line of very reasonably priced HD Binoculars, the Talons. We’ll be excited to see what these new glasses have to offer.  It looks as though the Talons fall between the Razors and the Vipers in the lineup. They appear to be a bargain based on the MSRP in the press release below.  Watch for a complete review of these later as well.

When it comes to packing value into optics, Vortex has it down to a science – and their new Talon HD binocular series is another perfect example. These open-hinge binoculars deliver the features and high level of optical performance discriminating hunters and outdoor enthusiasts demand, yet come in at a mid-range price inclined to leave customers asking if they were rung up correctly at the register. They’re that good.

Carefully selected High Density (HD) extra-low dispersion glass delivers impressive clarity, resolution and color accuracy. Precision crafted to exacting standards, Vortex HD lenses define what it means to be true-to-life. Fully multicoated with XR glass coatings to maximize light transmission through the optical system for the finest image detail and extraordinary brightness. External glass surfaces are protected with ArmorTek. This ultra-hard lens armor is chemically bonded to outer glass elements, providing a scratch-resistant, stainproof surface. Dust, dirt and smudges are easily removed without fear of scratching the optical glass beneath.

Rubber-armored magnesium chassis is rugged, lightweight and provides a secure nonslip grip. O-ring sealed at all critical points and purged with argon gas for a lifetime of reliable waterproof, fogproof and dustproof performance. Argon gas maintains its protective properties over a wider temperature range compared to other elements, does not diffuse as quickly and will not absorb or react chemically with water. Twist up eyecups offer a range of eye relief options for comfortable, customized viewing. Tripod adaptable for rock-steady extended glassing sessions. Binoculars come complete with soft carry case, neck strap, tethered objective lens covers and rainguard.
