    Budget spotter

    IMO I would upgrade your binos and put off the spotter upgrade for now. You can upgrade your binos to viper 15s used for $400 and put $200 to something else, or get a used pair of kaibabs.

    What's your budget? You might be able to pick something up used that's a little better. Also look at getting refurbs at, they still come with the lifetime warranty. Also will you be using a tripod to glass off of?
