"I ordered a pair of the Styrka to try out, seems they got very positive reviews here on BF from Steve C and Chuck (among others) and that’s when they were at full price ($600ish)."That’s also a really good deal although it appears to be the prior generation version. Smaller FOV than the 2nd gen although some claim the 1st gen was slightly better optically.
Styrka claims to have a comparable warranty and they even let you send in your optic once/year for cleaning (Vortex of course has been around a lot longer and are almost certainly more likely to still be around in 10 years): https://styrkastrong.com/styrka-warranty/

I'd be cautious of warranty on Swaro imports as well. I (unknowingly) bought an imported Swaro off eBay and SONA refused to even look at it let alone service it since the serial number registered as EU/UK product.I just wanted to give a heads up that 6ave.com stocks overseas import Leica and occasionally Swarovski binos. The Leica selection is far better than the Swaros but due to warranty issues, I’d stick to the Swaros which are available at a slight discount but NO SALES TAX. It’s a reliable seller and I’ve purchased high end grey market camera lenses from them in the past.
I inquired. They do not ship to the USA.
