Hello all,
Anyone have one of these scopes?  I have been checking everything on the board pertaining to Vortex Scopes and have not seen anything mentioned about the Diamondback HP. Maybe I am not using the search function correctly. Any input on this Scope would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This is a good question.  I have been away from shooting for 10 years now, and find myself very confused when it comes to the marketing and performance of various optic product lines. Vortex is a great example of what is going on. Vortex offers a Crossfire, diamondback, and Viper series of rifle scopes (OK, Good, Better, More Better). Within these series they offer a standard or HP/HD upgrade to some of these lines. Where I get confused is, if you upgrade to a Diamondback HP, then your looking at spending about the same money as if you were looking at a similar standard version of the Viper. Why wouldn't you go ahead and get the Viper? Is the Diamondback HP better glass than a standard Viper?

Diamondback HP is a new line.

I am currently testing the 2-8x32 version and I am very impressed with how good it is for the money.

Vortex' line-up is a might confusing and it is not clear to me how Diamondback HP is supposed to compare to the original Viper.  

I would guess that it will replace it, and some sort of a re-designed Viper will be higher on the food chain.  That is just my guess though.

ILya,
Thanks for chiming in. If you're impressed with the 2-8x32 you are testing, hopefully the 4-16x42 will impress as well. I will be looking forward to your review on the 2-8x32.
