C1's have better center resolution, but have way worse field of view (like looking through a tube). If you can get used to the tube effect, I'd take the C1's over the Vipers, and I've owned both.Anyone tested these against the C1’s?

Agreed. Kind of a toss up really. I value center resolution quite a bit but if I could get the C1 optical quality in the Viper build/ergo/DOF/FOV that would be a pretty nice binocular.Yep, I owned both at the same time. I have similar thoughts to @Newtosavage, and I'll add that the DOF in the C1 is also significantly worse. Everything he says is correct but I on the other hand prefer the Vipers. I really value good eyecups, ergonomics, FOV, and DOF. The C1s have great center resolution though. Just depends on what you prefer.
