It is also not a good idea to trust the people who write about comparing binoculars who use terms like "blows away" when they do. Your own "lying eyes" are more reliable.:smoke:

Yuk,

If you don't want the Silverlines only because you don't like their silver tubes then get the "Blackline" version. It costs the same and has exactly the same interior optics that the...
