Leupold SX-5 Santiam HD Named ‘Gray’s Best’
Leupold & Stevens, Inc., provider of the world’s most rugged, lightweight, and clear sport optics, is pleased to announce that the Leupold SX-5 Santiam HD Spotting Scope has been named “Gray’s Best” for Shooting products by Gray’s Sporting Journal. The award was announced in Gray’s 2021 Expeditions & Guides Annual.
The Gray’s Best awards are selected by the editors of Gray’s Sporting Journal, who choose gear that not only makes good first impressions, but satisfies during repeated use. Choices are made of the Editorial team’s own volition, absent encouragement or incentive from the manufacturers.
“Now, with its Santiam line, Leupold is making a concerted effort to reestablish itself as the all-in-one optics maker for hunters who climb higher and travel far,” Terry Wieland said in his Gray’s Best review, “… The Santiam line (and it is a line, with binoculars as well) is intended to face off against the big European names on their own turf.”
Designed with the most diehard hunters and shooters in mind, the SX-5 Santiam HD is available in both a straight and angled model and is built to redefine top-tier spotting scopes. A generous eyepiece means premium edge-to-edge clarity and unmatched sharpness and definition, while fully-multicoated lens coatings eliminate color aberration and distortion throughout the entirety of the magnification range. A rugged, lightweight armor and DiamondCoat 2 and Guard-Ion scratch-resistant and water-shedding lens coatings ensure the SX-5 Santiam HD spotter can handle anything you can throw at it. Its Porro prism construction, ultra-fine center focus wheel, adjustable eyecup, and indexed rotational tripod ring deliver the features that hunters and shooters have demanded.
“Our consumers are some of the most dedicated, relentless hunters in the world,” said Bruce Pettet, President and Chief Executive Officer for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “They need optics that are as tough as they are–and the SX-5 Santiam HD Spotting Scope has been designed from the ground up to deliver that performance. We’re ecstatic that the editorial team at Gray’s Sporting Journal–one of the most respected publications in the hunting and outdoor industry–have recognized its unrivaled position in the marketplace.””
Both the straight and angled models of the SX-5 Santiam HD Spotting Scope are available in a Shadow Gray finish and are backed by Leupold’s legendary Full Lifetime Guarantee.
