Thread: Kahles or Swarovski Bins

    Kahles or Swarovski Bins

    Looking to buy a decent pair of 8x42 binoculars for stalking and I am looking at a either a new pair of kahles for 600ish or used swarovsk 850ish. I am not a professional stalker and wander whether I would appreciate the difference between the two that would justify the extra money.

    Any comments appreciated.

    I went from 8x42 Kahles to 8x56 Leica, and there is a noticeable difference IMHO between the two. Try and try them first?

    If i say in 3 years or so if you sold them on you would get less than you paid for the Kahles BUT you would get more than you paid for the Swarovski's.
    I have two mates whos Swaro's are valued at over double what they paid for them 15 years ago.

    Do a search on here Ref 'Minox' binos, only good honest reports about them. Wish I'd kept mine as a second pair.

    Very good glass.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
