    From what I've experienced they are about equal in both warranty and glass quality. I believe vortex is faster on the draw when it comes to warranty work and their glass is made in Japan or America depending on the price tier where as Athlon is mostly Chinese and Japanese glass but other than that pick the optic that fits your specific needs and you'll be perfectly satisfied with either manufacturer.

    You won’t be disappointed with Athlon!

    @Brandon most Vortex products are made in China. They have one optic made in the US, one family in Japan and a couple made in the Philippines

    @Tony I have been corrected, either way I like both manufacturer's equally, I've handled both and have not been disappointed. So again to the original poster, pick the optic that fits your needs and enjoy.

I was raised in Cali but don't fit in because I'm not a communist. I love guns, bows, huntin, fishing, hiking, camping, my family, and my country. I am an avid hunter and fisherman. I hunt the alpine mountains of Colorado and Utah. I prefer to archery hunt, but I will never turn down rifle season. my favorite animals to hunt are elk and deer. My dream hunt would be to hunt a red stag. I was an archery tech for a few years and have shot every pro bow I could get my hands on. I am a Hoyt guy through and through. I am a OIF veteran and wouldn't change anything about my time while serving.
