    Review by 'SportOptics' on item 'Victory SF 8X42'

    Likes: The Victory SF's are a pleasure to use. Clear, crisp, images with bright vibrant colors across the entire wide field of view. The ergonomic and naturally pointing open bridge design combined with the anti-slip texture and balancing makes the SF's a pleasure to handle and even seem lighter...

    Review by 'SportOptics' on item 'MeoStar S2 82 HD'

    This scope is great! The clarity is superb, bright colors, sharp and clear edge to edge. The 30-60X WA eyepiece offers a very wide field of view. Works great digiscoping. We took pictures of a hawk at 100 yards when very over cast (about to rain) pictures came out great. Comparing with...

    Review by 'SportOptics' on item 'Viper HD 8x32'

    These binoculars offer a great viewing experience due to a quick natural focus and high quality glass and at the right price. They are not particularly heavy weighing at 20.6 oz but they do feel very solid in your hands. Bright vibrant colors and sharp crisp details at a distance and up close...
