Swaro 25-50WA on new Razor HD spotting scope (1 Viewer)

It's a well-known fact that the Swarovski eyepiece will fit in the old Vortex Razor scope. But I was looking at my new 85mm Razor HD scope and thinking about getting a Swarovski eyepiece for it. Will the 25-50 WA or 20-60 eyepiece fit in the new Razor HD? Thanks in advance

I also copied the link to each of them mentioned:

Curious if you've had a chance to try Swarovski eyepieces on your Vortex scope yet? I have the first generation Vortex Razor HD 85mm scope with the dual-focus knobs, before they changed to the barrel ring focus. With the standard Vortex 20-60x zoom eyepiece. I had never heard of other brands of eyepieces being compatible with the vortex scope. Can anyone share their experience with 'off-brand' eyepieces on this scope? I think the vortex zoom eyepiece is outstanding already, but heck it would be cool to try others. Found this brief discussion of this topic, but not very in-depth:

With the oldstyle grey Razors you can also use the astro adaptor from APM (that is designed for Swaro ATS scopes) to use 1.25" EPs.
