Vortex Triumph HD 10x42 (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I ordered this binocular and received it yesterday.
Due to the wide AFOV and 17mm stated ER I did not expect it to work sufficiently with eyeglasses. But the eye lenses are pretty large(forgot to measure) and my wondering was if it would be possible to cut and sand the eyepiece in order to increase the useable ER enough, like I did with Bantam 6,5x32.
After a while testing I draw the conclusion that it would not be good enough for me. So I sent it back this morning.
Otherwise it was a nice binocular for the price and I think a 8x42 version of Triumph had been better.
I wonder why Vortex only offer a 10x option.
