Peak Performance for the Relentless Hunter: Leupold Announces New SX-5 Santiam HD Spotting Scope

October 12, 2018

Leupold & Stevens, Inc., has announced its new SX-5 Santiam HD 27-55x80mm Spotting Scope. Designed with the most diehard hunters and shooters in mind, the SX-5 Santiam HD will be 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 been asking for.

“Our consumers are some of the most dedicated, relentless hunters in the world,” said Zach Bird, Product Line Manager 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.”

The SX-5 Santiam HD Spotting Scope features Leupold’s venerable Twilight Max HD light management system – the same one associated with the award-winning VX-5HD and VX-6HD riflescopes – to allow users to glass longer during the early predawn hours to well past dusk. Twilight Max HD combines exceptional light transmission and glare management to provide vivid images and top-of-the-line optical performance in low-light conditions.

“The human eye is most sensitive to colors outside the middle of the spectrum during dawn and dusk, when game is moving – the Twilight Max HD Light Management System literally helps you see more in less light,” Bird said. “The superior glare reduction it offers ensures the maximum amount of usable light gets to your eye. Our proprietary lens coatings and superior optical design help deliver the very best contrast and resolution, ensuring you'll be able to see things like tines in heavy brush in very little light.”

Both the straight and angled models of the SX-5 Santiam HD Spotting Scope will be available in a Shadow Gray finish and are backed by Leupold’s legendary Full Lifetime Guarantee.
