    Straight vs Angled

    Looking at two variations of the same model scope. One is 20-60x60mm with a straight body, the other is 20-60x80mm angled. 80mm is aprox $100 more (not an issue).

    I'd normally just jump on the larger objective, but I'm not sure which body design is more comfortable with prone shooting. Also, less of a concern but still there, if the 20mm larger lends would add too much bulk when cased with my rifle in a drag bag

    Thoughts?

      It's obviously meant to be a Bill Clinton reference!

              angled is more versatile and can be used in a variety of situations such as astronomy. I would stick with 50 or 60mm with ED or HD glass. 80mm is to big to carry around.

              when you get sick and tired dragging the spotting scope around and the time it takes to set it up. ED scopes hold better value and you can sell them in for a really good set of 7x or 8x binoculars. Unless this scope is just for the range
