    My pal has brought a pair back from the States - they look the biz.
    I tried them out but nothing challenging and I have to say I was impressed and all for less than $300 in the USA.

    Hoping to have a few sets down with us at the Newark Deer Stalking Fair. It'll be our usual hard sell approach - ie you are welcome to give them a try and decide for yourself.

    We like them and have yet to find a major gripe for the money.

    I see sportsman gun centre are doing them for like 130 or something. Pretty cheap.
    The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.

    We do them if it's any help, we are using vortex bins and scopes and they are very good for the money plus the warranty is second to none

    Does anyone else see the phrase, "good for the price" as damning with faint praise? Or is it just me?

    My mate got some and we compared them to my older 8x42 Swaro SLC's in a not so scientific test. Normal light you can't really tell the difference. Low light I reckoned mine were clearer and he said not. You could defo see better through mine when the light was nearly gone, but by then you wouldn't shoot a deer anyway!

    I bought my Swaro's 2nd hand for 500 quid which was a good deal, but if I'd had the chance to compare before I got them, I would probably have bought the Vortex and saved meself a good wedge. Swaro's are certainly not 10 times the quality, but new are 10 times the price!!

    Oh and Vortex give a no quibble lifetime guarantee too and they are much lighter than mine,

    I've been using these for the last few years and I think they're very good. At last light if these can't see the deer then neither will my Zeiss scope.
