I’ve read the panning has a memory and it likes to pull back to were it was previously. You experience that at all?I haven't used the Outdoorsman, but bought the Wiser toward the end of last year. We don't do a ton of glassing where I hunt, but using it during late season and throughout this spring, I love it with binos. Haven't put a spotter on it because I don't have much need for one, so I can't speak to that. But the weight and smoothness of the head is excellent. I was pleasantly surprised it's as good as it is.
I have the Wiser and love it. Had an outdoorsman previously which is very comparable to the JW 2.0. Personally, I have zero issues with my Wiser with binos, and my spotter (ATX 85). I could see a BTX or the 95/115 maybe being too much for it. Buy my 85 locks down tight and pans great.
Now you have me thinking…. I was all but sold on the White 2.0 as I run my STS 80 a lot and had/still have slight doubts on the wiser being stable…
We are in the exact same boat as I do exactly the same. I’m too on the fence so I’ll likely grab them both and just sell the one I like the least.Just so I’m not misleading I glass with binos 85% of the time and a spotter to confirm or pick out shadows and super far stuff. Again for me I don’t have any issues panning or locking my ATX down. I don’t glass through the spotter as my main method however. Just want to make sure you were tracking how I use my spotter to glass.
