Default Binocs what make and model?

Nikon, Leupold, Bushnell, Swarovski and more to choose from and then what model do you have and magnification? And Why that model?


Personally I like a middle of the price range models Like the Nikon Monarch with an excellent 10X42 for long distant or the 8x42 for in close deer woods hunting.

Lets read your choice?

I use a set of Tascos that're pretty old. They're so clear, I just can't see myself buying anything else. They weigh a lot more than some of the newer ones. They never fogged on me either.

The high end ones are nice. But you are right...

When the deer start movin, I rarely take the time to look through the binocs.

Vortex Optics


Made in the USA (Wisconsin)

www.vortexoptics.com

I found some bino dealers on another hunting site that beat MSRP.


I like them a lot!

PS the closer you get to 5.0 the more well balanced the deal is i.e. 10x32 = 3.2 10x 50 = 5.0

I do have Leupold on my guns but I'm thinking of Vortex scopes next time around
