I'm getting ready to put some glass on a 221 FB and I've been considering the Vortex Dback 2-7x35 and the FFII 2-7x35.  What do you guys think would be the better of these two scopes?  I will be using it mainly in wooded lots and forest settings.

i have owned a ffII in a 3x9 and i did a test drive with the vortex also in a 3x9, and to be honest i would say they are to close to call, i will probably give the ffII the nod, just because they have been around, but then again hard to beat vortex's warranty. the vortex is right on par with the nikon buckmaster maybe a little better

I did a review of the Diamondback you are considering, but admittedly I have not given the FFII you are considering a "look see" before.

I have the Vortex Dback 1.75-5 for a test drive.  I know it is not quite the best comparison, but I would still say my FFII is better.  That is the way I would recommend going.

Thanks for the replies.  I was leaning towards the FFII so I think that is the route I will take. Plus I can get it with the #4 reticle.
