SS 8.5X45 though discontinued in 2014 was still featured in a 2014 Accessories Product Reference Manual w/msrp 1,127.49 pg 6 of 51. It seems that every price ends in either .49 or .95. There's a reason, howevah I am not privy to the answer. Many times the differing cents is a key for markdown/how much if any discounted from a previous price. Except I'm seeing 49 & 95 on items marked as new/first time offerings.
Four classic bins were offered w/only the 8x36 surviving today. Priced then at 291.95 it is now listed on Weaver website for 277.95. All six bottom rung Kaspa bins survived.
Super Slam Binoculars
• ED glass for the ultimate light gathering ability
• SHR lens coating for increased light transmission
• Roof prism design with SK and BaK-4 prism glass [SK-14, 15 or 16? Regardless it would seem they mixed & matched prism glass; to what end I'm unsure]
• Focus lock allows preferred adjustments to be locked in for viewer
• Torture tested from -20° to +150° Fahrenheit

Remember the blowhard attempting to make issue about stock inventory? What a joke except I may be the only person that purchased a SS bin.
