I saw the following on another forum: Are we talking about the new HD Golden Eagle? If so, I'd highly recommend that one. I have the previous Golden Eagle and shoot FTR with it quite often. The old GE was a good buy but now that they've upgraded to HD glass, it'll probably be even better. I haven't had the chance to look through the new one but they price hasn't changed even with the upgraded glass. Maybe my google-fu isn't the best but I was not able to find info on Vortex changing the Golden Eagle. Has it been changed in the past?
