Afternoon all,

Any one used the vortex 5000 fury range finding binoculars? Are they good in last/low light? Would it be worth getting the newer version with applied ballistics? Is there any other range finding binoculars in a similar price range that are better?

Thank you in advance Everyone.
 
I use for all my rifle shooting. Stalking, fixing etc.
I have compared them against Swarovski, there is a slight difference but not to warrant paying an extra £1000.
Would i have another pair, yes.

I have some, non AB version.

I think they stack up quite well to the big brands. I’ve tested them side by side with EL’s and there isn’t thatttt much in it. As said above, not double the price territory anyway. Highly recommended.
 
I did a lot of research into the AB version and personally I think it's only worth the extra if you're planning on shooting from set position at proper long distance and having to contend with differing angles of elevation and wind direction. Sitting on a rocky outcrop and shooting animals on a facing valley side that could pop up anywhere then yes, but if just shooting foxes/deer while walking round some fields then not so much.
 
I have been using a pair for the last 2 years without any issued. Good value at the price point. Compact and not too heavy, non AB, I have no use for it so can’t comment.
Need to have a steady rest/ hold to get best results due to 10 x magnification. Not quite as good as my Swarovski at low light but you wouldn’t expect them to be.
 
Quick Question lads is it just in yards they work or can you change it to meters? Thanks
 


This video compares them side by side to some Leica Geovids and seems a decent honest comparison with pros and cons for each.
 
Use non AB set, can't fault them and if out with my mate and look through his Swaros at last light, differnce is only marginal, as others have said difference certainly doesn't warrant an extra £1k, lifetime warranty is a no brainer.
