Heads Up On Some Great Optics (1 Viewer)

Binoculars & Spotting Scopes You May Not Know About

There's some great optics that do not get the exposure as others. The manufacturer doesn't do a ton of marketing and perhaps this is why you may be missing out. We thought we'd take the time to clue you in on some outstanding optics that are worth taking the time to familiarize yourself with.

In no particular order.......

Burris Signature HD 15x56mm Binocular - This high quality binocular is only $799.99 and is made in Japan.
15X MAGNIFICATION - Bring distant objects closer than ever.
EXCEPTIONAL CLARITY - Bak-4 glass with Phase Correct, dielectric coating for precise resolution and true-to-life colors.
LOW LIGHT VISIBILITY - Maximum light transmission for low-light conditions.
RUGGED CONSTRUCTION - Built to withstand the toughest environments with a shockproof body and durable rubber armor.
WEATHERPROOF - Nitrogen-filled for reliability in all conditions.
TRIPOD ADAPTER MOUNT - Achieve steady observations of fine details.
COMFORTABLE DESIGN - No-slip texturing, a cushy neoprene neck strap, and metal eyecups for eye relief adjustment.

Hawke Endurance ED 20-60x68 Spotting Scope - Priced way less than you'd expect from the features and quality (add to cart to see special pricing). In the under $1,000.00 category this scope is a winner and has been totally overlooked due to lack of marketing. It comes out of the same factory as many of the very popular spotters and this unit is 20-60x68 vs the others that are 15-45x65 and this scope also has 2 touch focus, general focus + a fine focus.
"Endurance ED spotting scopes provide the performance to get close to the action and the durability you demand. All magnifications are constructed with ED glass reducing the potential for chromatic aberration. ED glass controls color fringing and allows an improvement in clarity and crispness of the image, highly recommended by nature enthusiasts. All lenses are Fully Multi-Coated and prisms Dielectric Coated for increased reflectivity. Endurance scopes feature a dual focus knob (coarse and fine), 3x ratio eyepieces
with twist-up eye cups and retractable sunshades."

N2 injection™ system seals 14-psi pressurized dry nitrogen into the optic, for fogproof clarity in any condition - from artic cold to desert heat.

Athlon Argos 20-60x85mm Spotting Scope - At only $299.99 this spotting scope is a deal. "The Argos family of spotting scopes are designed with good optical quality and ease of use in mind. The Argos spotting scope features Athlons wind band fully multi-coated lenses and porro prisms with phased coating. They bring great clarity and brightness within the reach of all enthusiasts.

Advanced Fully Multi-Coated Lenses: Advanced Fully Multi-Coated lenses bring you better light transmission to bring optimum brightness and true color across the entire light spectrum.
Nitrogen Purged: Nitrogen Purging uses the inertia gas to purge moisture out of the tube giving you better waterproofing and thermal stability.
