Hunting (not long range) and birding. Something lighter and a little more reach than my 8x42 bins. I had a large scope but sold it, too much of a pain to lug around.
Then either the razor or kowa. Just have to remember the down falls, low field of view and with all spotters the true full clarity is not at full mag. Neither are great for digiscoping either.
I can’t attest to kowa’s warranty but can Vortex. Dropped my spotter off a high rack and busted it on a rock. Had new one from vortex in 5 business days.
You will probably also be happier with the straight version.
