Crossfire HD - Diamondback HD (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
It seems like Vortex, beside the new Razor UHD, also upgraded their Crossfire and Diamondback lines with HD glass..
It is at their website, same body on both but better glass quality..

Greetings- so in reading up on the new HD designation - for the Crossfire line, what it means is that they have formulated a new lens coating (think FMC), which is supposed to be a bit better, so they now use that on all surfaces, and gave it the marketing tag "HD". Crossfire HDs are terrific bins, I'm writing a review on my new 12x50s right now.

I found a few more distinctions between the Crossfire HD line and the Diamondback HD line:
(1) D-Backs use dielectric coatings on their prisms, Crossfires do not;
(2) D-Backs have slight ribbing on the sides of the binocular for grip, Crossfires are smooth;
