Swarovski 25-50w eyepiece.

Hello.

I am a owner of a Vortex Razor HD 85 spotting scope. Have been using it for about a year now and find it quiet good for the money. But i some times find the 20-60 eyepiece having a bit narrow FOW and that its a bit hard to get good focus from 50-60X.

To sort this problem out i have been thinking of buying a Swarovski 25-50w eyepiece. Only problem is no store near my location has it in stock so i can try it out on the scope IRL sp to speak.

So anybody here that has experience using that eyepiece with the Razor?

Yes, this 25-50x SW fits and works fine on the Razor 85 HD body.

Trust this helps!

Today I heard back from a retailer in Sweden who stocks both Vortex and Swarovski.
According to them they had tried the Swarovski eyepiece on the Razor and found that it did work.
But they also did break the tube while fitting the eyepiece because it was not a perfect fit.
