Vortex Razor UHD vs Swarovski SLC/EL

I have a pair of the UHD 10x42 that I have for sale that I’m kind of on the fence about but the more I think about it am I really giving up much optically over the Swaros. I’ve looked at both the SLC and EL at Sportsman’s in the store only next to the UHD and honestly didn’t se much of a difference, but I know that’s not a fair comparison. I really need to use them in the field side by side but don’t have any buddy’s with Swaros to do this. So is it worth it to sell the UHDs and pony up the extra cash for the Swaros or save it for maybe a set of 18x binos or spotter? I hunt everywhere from the coast for elk to over East for deer and am really looking at the 10x42 versions. What do y’all say?

if you already have the Vortex, give them a whirl.
If you want to check our the Swaros in the field, you might try a birdwatching walk with the Portland Audubon Society. Just don’t mention you are a hunter/ gun guy..
