Opticron Traveller BGA Mg 10x32

Thinking of getting some 10x smaller binoculars (but not compacts) for holiday birding where a bit more reach will be an advantage.

My local In Focus recommends Opticron Traveller BGA ED but they could be few more quid than I want to pay.

The above Magnesium bins look interesting and I’ve also had thoughts about Nikon Prostaff 10x30.

Anyone have any thoughts about any of the above bins or have a recommendation in the 10x30/32 bracket that are not likely to break the bank?

Thanks!

Bought the Opticrons for my brother for his 50th Ap (joint present). To me they were superb. My brother in law then bought a pair after trying Gareth’s. Got them from Carmarthen Cameras.

Try them out if you can.

My mistake. Sorry Ap. They were the BGA ED model. Just over £300.

I have a Traveller BGA 8x32 ED and I agree that this is a super bino and great value.
