    Meostar (Euro HD) ergonomics

    It is the best out of all. You can think of it as Swarovski SLC 8x32’s sibling

    Meostar (Euro HD) ergonomics

    You fold the eyecups all the way in and rest the binoculars on your eyebrows and tilt your chin to get perfect eye relief. I had the 8x32s and no one can beat them under $1000 category.

    Leica 8x50 Ultravid HD Plus

    When you have SLC HD 8x56, why will you buy the Ultravid 8x50. SLC are cheaper and brighter.

    KAHLES HELIA S BINOCULARS ON BLACK FRIDAY SALE FOR $1179 + FREE SHIPPING

    Yes sir, I always wanted a SLC 42 mm. I bought a SLC 10x42 but sold it because I could not hold it still. I have an EL 8.5x42 which I like but after buying couple of SLC 56mm binos I still wanted the 8x42. So I could not resist this sale price. I believe $1179 is a crazy deal.

    Zeiss conquest Gavia 85 vs kowa TSN 773 which to choose

    I have tried 883. Gavia was not as sharp in resolution. Kowa was amazing. But Gavia will be little brighter during dark hours only. But if you want a better scope for same price , then go with Meopta S2. If you want the best of best then buy Swarovski ATX/STX but improvement over Meopta will be...
