Thread: Binoculars

  1. #1


    I am looking to purchase a decent pair of binoculars . What makes would be the best and what size.
    I would be stalking in open land.
    Any advice would be very much appreciated.

    Swarovski 8.5x42 EL's are excellent bins.

    Swarovski, Zeiss and Lieca are your top three obviously with prices to match though they all have different grades within the makes, a decent mid range offering is made by Minox. I would go for 8 or 10 x 40 you don't need any greater magnification than that and a bigger objective is going to make them a tad heavy.

    well I paid 125 for my Minox 8X42's and they have seen everything from scorching heat to consecutive days of drenching in the peat hags of the highlands, and perform very very very admirably indeed ps...I have previously stalked with Zeiss Diatal 7X42's and can honestly say I'd rather take the Minox's ANY day due to weight and ability to focus in on various distanced objects clearly.

    Leica, Swarovski and Ziess are among the best, though quality comes at a price.

    Try and get the best you can afford they'll pay dividends in the long term.
