Precision Optics: Vortex Razor UHD Binoculars


Vortex Razor UHD 1

A next-level optic, the Vortex Razor UHD Binoculars deliver crisper, clearer images under any conditions.

How Razor UHD Compare To Other Optics:

  • Longer Abbe Koening Prisms to transmit more light.
  • Advanced lens coatings enhance images in low-light and multi-layered coatings on the prism keep images bright and clear.
  • Similar ergonomics to the highly popular Razor HD line of binoculars.

If you hunt nothing but thick timber, ignore this advice. You need a good set of binoculars. Clowning around with an inferior glass or going without, you’re fiddling with missed opportunities or hiking yourself into the ground in search of game. Either case, not good.

Vortex appears to have the answer, especially if you have your eye out for a step up from entry-level, with its new Razor UHD (Ultra High Definition) line of binos. Essentially, the optics have the same feel and look as Vortex’s existing Razor HD line, but have one major difference – it’s Abbe Koening Prisms. Longer than the previous version, they gather and distribute more light, thus deliver much clearer images. Though, the addition does raise the binoculars' weight ever so slightly. Still, whether for spotting game or hits and misses, the Razor UHD binos look to excel.
