You nailed my feelings exactly. Very well though out post. Well said!There glare monsters and I’m buying his SFL’s when they go up for sale. Seriously, there are many reasons for selling binoculars we really like and praise, we all know that. The Habicht’s, especially in 7x42 is a unique breed if not an anomaly. If you want or need night time binoculars that cuts through the night with the slightest street lighting or even a full moon on a boat looking for buoys, the Habicht’s 742 is the tool.
As far as selling them, being that special unique tool that it is, it becomes or is less of an everyday all-around optic. Many of us own a ridiculous amount of binoculars (whatever that number is) and hang on to them. Others use them for a while then sell them off and try or ad something else to the collection, knowing we could always buy them again if we wanted.
If you have the money and or can justify owning binoculars you rarely use, and in this case a specialty optic in my opinion then great. I have binoculars I don’t use for a while, then I go back to them and they’re like new again. I guess samething could be said to just buy them again. Sometimes the buying and selling can be fun as well. Just my take on it.
