I have a great relationship with Eurooptic, excellent to do business with.
Dennis is back! Hey Dennis.I have tried most of the 8x42 binoculars in the $300 to $500 range, and I liked the Vortex Viper HD 8x42 the best. It comes very close to the performance of the $1000 8x42 binoculars at a lot lower price point. Surprisingly, Cabella's has the best price on the Vortex Viper HD 8x42 right now for $449.98 and if you could fly with a 10x42 they have the Vortex Viper HD 10x42 for $299.97.
If you're looking for the best binoculars for less than a grand, the Vortex Viper HD 8x42 should be at the top of your shortlist. These binoculars strike a...www.outdoorgearlab.com
PaulActually it’s not, it’s better than the 2018 replacement, better light transmission, shorter close focus, smaller, lighter and not MIC.
You mentioned before these were assembled in Phillipines. While Cabelas is now showing these with 319 ft FOV ( a couple months back before they disappeared from their site) they showed 341 ft. I am wondering if your box does not say 341 ft ? And also has a copyright on the box of 2020 ?
If you can find the BX-4 in stock somewhere and you like how it fits, my advice is to go for it. It is a very good, and highly competitive glass.Any opinion on Leupold Bx-4 8x32? They are $100 off through 4/3/2023? So now looking at Leupold, Optricron Verano and GPO Passion or Spectra. I suspect they are all pretty similar for wildlife /birds.Leupold and Opticron are made in Japan. Opticron are tougher to find.
