Looking to build a varmint (pdog, yotes, fox) and was looking for pros/cons on these two lines.....about set on trying a vortex.  Gonna be shooting a .204 or .17hmr (pdogs).....is the diamondback worth the $150?

Haven't really used either but the other day got to handle a couple and was very impressed with the 2x7 crossfire for the $$. The diamondback has argon gas FWTW but I can't say about the glass etc. For $150 I would say go for the diamondback unless your on a tight budget . For light hunting, target and varmits you should be golden. Just my .02

It really comes down to your eyes.  My buddy talked me out of my 2-7 Viper, and later acquired a 2-7 Crossfire in a gun deal.  His eyes can't tell a whole lot of difference between the two, though the Crossfire is a touch bigger.

Just like shoes - you gotta try 'em on!
