It’s an unfortunate fact of life that we can’t get to every cool new product every year. Some fall through the editorial cracks, much like the Vortex Strike Eagle has. That said, it seems like the quality scope for budget-minded individuals didn’t escape our readers. In our annual Reader’s Choice Awards where thousands of you readers get to vote for your favorite new things of the year the Vortex Strike Eagle was the clear winner among new optics, and as a result they will be walking away from SHOT Show 2016 with something for their trophy case. Stay tuned to find out who else will be getting an award from this year’s competition!
