Optical Hardware Prophecy 10 x 42 DCF

Have any of you ever come across Optical Hardware as a manufacturer?
http://www.opticalhardware.co.uk/
I have just come across a set of Optical Hardware Prophecy 10 x 42 DCF for 130 which seems too good an opportunity to miss if they are actually any good.
(Most dealers seem to be selling them at about 200-250 in the UK)

They're not listed on the companies web site, so perhaps they are last year's model.
It looks like they are just a re-badging/importing firm, though I've no problem with that if they are importing a good product.
Thanks for the help

Thumbs up

In the absence of any replies I went ahead and ordered a set for Jane from
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/LOTNABOX
Down in price to 119 +p&p. Beware they also have them listed at various higher prices.
Very pleasantly surprised by the quality. They knock spots of Jane's Bushnell Trophies and are almost up to my Bauch & Lomb Elites.
Also a speedy delivery, I'd say we got a bargain.

Also I was wrong about them not being on the Optical Hardware website. I was just looking in the wrong place.

Strangely enough, yes, I have heard of them...at least the name but little else. Post about what you find once you receive them. The name alone has me curious.
