    Cheap used binoculars

    Hi folks,
    Just wondering if anybody has a pair of "budget" type binoculars they aren't using and would like to sell to a good home?
    I'm looking for anything the likes of Minox, Barr and Stroud Savannah, vortex diamondback, etc, etc. 8x42 as a preference or 10x42.
    I know I could save up my pennies and buy a few-year-old set of something good, but honestly my priorities aren't that way round just now. Anything cheap and cheerful that does the job will do. They'll be for stalking (obviously) and general wildlife spotting and being nosy.
    Let me know what you've got
    Cheers folks!

    check the aisles at Lidl regularly, some 'ok' bino's crop up there now and again. also, the zeiss leebut has for sale would be a good little investment IMHO..not 'modern', but good quality and glass which is really a lot more important than aesthetics

    I might have something that will help you out. If I can find them You are welcome to have them free. All you have to do is either pay postage or pop down this way if in the area. As you can tell these are not expensive binos but they are fine during the day if that is of use.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .
