  1. Alpen Teton ED HD Abbe

    Reply to a question by 'Bphunter53' on the item 'Alpen Teton ED HD Abbe'

    Sorry, just now seeing this. I still have yet to find a pair of Binos to displace my Teton 8x42. I'm thinking im going to have to make a big jump to the NL Pure or Zeiss SF But even then i don't think they can beat them by much and they are super expensive.

    Should I keep a pair of Nikon Monarch M7 that was shipped with zero protection?

    Nikon took a step back with the m7 imo. I Prefer both the monarch 5 and 7 over the m7. If you want to stick with nikon i would go with the monarch 7 for its larger field of view than the 5. If you want a true upgrade go to optics planet and buy the Alpen Teton ED HD For $499 I have the 8x42...

    Zeiss Victory T FL 8X42 Value ?

    I have a super clean set of Victory T FL 8X42 And wondering what a fair selling price is ? The glass is perfect and they look close to new. These were made may 22 2007 according to Zeiss verified by serial # so they are the updated lotutec coating model.

    Binocular upgrade

    I really don't see much on the Noctivid. May have to check them out. There are no real optics dealers in my area so i have to read alot of reviews and just order over and over and see for myself. My personal experience seems to differ from expert reviews at times. Lol If you could mail me the...

    Binocular upgrade

    You will get a better view from a quality 8 than a 10 unless using a tripod or have very steady hands. Before you drop 2k plus though you need to know there are some binos in the $500 range that get pretty darn close to the alphas. I have been an avid hunter for 45 years. I have gotten very...
