    What size is this if you still have it?
  2. 15-45x65 Great condition. Just got it back from vortex to get it all checked out and cleaned. There are a couple small scratches on objective lens. Vortex said it does not have any affect on performance. Attached is also what vortex says about that. Neoprene sleeve for protection is also included. As always the vortex VIP warranty is included Asking $400 Pick out the detail you need with the compact 65mm Viper spotting scope at your fingetips. XR anti-reflective coatings team up with XD extra-low dispersion glass for images that are bright, crisp, and sharp. Meet challenging conditions with confidence thanks to the superior fogproof and waterproof performance of the rugged Viper.

XD Lens Elements - Extra-low dispersion (XD) glass increases resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crisp, sharp images.

Porro Prism - Offers maximum image quality and performance in a traditional design.

    Need a Good Hunting Boot

    The Meindl's won last night. The Lowa's ended up hurting my feet a bit...about an hour. Then I put the Meindl's on and they were way more confortable with plenty of room, but tight at the same time.

    Need a Good Hunting Boot

    Ok. I ended up buying the Cabelas Ultralight Hunter by Meindl and the Lowa from REI. Now I need to go home and walk around with them to see if they cause me any issues. Really the difference between the 2 are: The Lowa's don't need to be broken in and the Meindl's do. The Lowa's have a shorter rise to the with less ankle support. Both were about the same price. Not sure which ones to choose if both don't cause me any foot problems while testing at home. Anyone pick one over the other? Reasons?

    Need a Good Hunting Boot

    I had a pair of ibex that i bought 3 or 4 years ago and these were phenomenal boots. Problem is they discontinued that particular ibex model and went with a different design..... not better but still a good boot. I am a looking at the meindl air revolution so its good to get this review . I didn't try the Perfekt or the Air Revolution because they were a bit out of my price range....but I think I will try them out next time I go in.
  10. Any help would be appreciated. We are going to go scout a few different areas and see what we can get on. Any other help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Need a Good Hunting Boot

    Ok. SO I went to Cabelas today and tried on a few pairs. The 2 I like the most were the Irish Setter Havoc and the Cabelas Ultra Light Hunter by Meindl. Both about the same price. I had to get a size 8 in the IS and a 9 in the Meindl. I had to tighten the Meindl;s really tight so there was not heel slip. The IS seemed tight on top naturally. Not sure if that is normal for boots. I ran out of time so I need to go back and try on both pairs again and try on both right and left boots. I just tried on the rights today. The Irish Setters I had before I liked a lot except I believe it was the left boot pinched the top sides of my feet and would hurt really bad after a while of hiking. I pretty sure I can feel where my toe needs to be in a boot and I look for a slipping heel, but what else do I need to feel for....seems like the top of my foot is the biggest issue....is that something I just need to deal with? Still want to go to REI as well and try out the Salomon Quest Boots. Thanks Everyone.
