    Strathspey and Minox BF Binos

    I have been looking for some binos for under 200 and have read all the positive Minox reviews. I noticed that the BF models are much cheaper, does anyone know the reason why?

    I had also looked at the Starthspey Binoculars website and they seems very cheap, but I can't find our much about them. Does anyone know anything?

    I had also considered ex army Zeiss binos on ebay, but I have been told they are very heavy!

    Any advice welcome!

    hi steve,

    I have a pair of minox BF binos that i bought about 3 or 4 years ago. They are actually a great piece of kit, when i bout them they were over the 300 mark. If we'r being realistic, they probably arent in the same class as say a pair of swarovski binos. However i have been more than happy with mine. they are relatively light, very good in the early mornings/evenings and very durable. I would be more than happy to buy another pair if i had to replace these.

    I was looking on the sportsman gun center website the other day and they have a great deal on them. I dont know how they can sell them for 150...

    hope that helps, Dan
