Interesting. I returned a pair of C1's specifically because the eyecups wouldn't hold their position and the narrow FOV. I agree the image was quite good though.

Yea, that was me. They were terrible. I can't believe Sightron put their name on that junk, to be honest.

To my eyes, of the 30+ pairs I've owned over the years, these three offer the easiest and most stress-free view:

1) Nikon LX-L

2) Zeiss Conquest HD

3) Sightron Blue Sky II 8x32

I've literally...

I have deep set eyes and a large nose bridge. Zeiss Conquests work great for me, as do Bushnell Legend M and Engage. Also Swaro eyecups work very well too.

I tried both the Frontier ED and Sapphire ED and returned them both. Way too much distortion for me. I couldn't look through them comfortably for more than a few seconds. I was very disappointed. ...

I don't think the reflections come in from the eyepieces. I was testing this yesterday evening, and I stood in my dark garage and looked out on the neighborhood in the fading evening light. There...

I completely agree.

I received my 2nd pair of 10x42 Engage bins today. I am still in shock at how good they are for $200. It's really amazing what they managed to pack in to those tiny little...

I've always been a big Nikon Monarch 7 fan. I think they represent the best price:performance value in their price range and have for a decade or more now. Viper HD's are close, but I trust the...

If nothing else, you can cut a piece of bicycle inner tube, stretch it over the eyepiece and then fold it over onto itself. The folded edge makes a nice soft point of contact and honestly it doesn't...

Thanks.

I'm gonna take a guess and say those were also sold as Eagle Optics Rangers, and were made by Kamakura?

Go for the Outdoorsman stud. You won't be sorry.

There is a good chance that cap will unscrew and you can install the stud yourself (or any conventional 1/4x20 binocular adapter).

I'm a confessed binocular junkie and bargain-hunter. That's an awful combination!
