    I agree with the Redfield Rebels! Really good glass for the money. A little on the heavyier side, but not a problem with a good harness system. Had a pair of Steiners and the Redfields are alot better IMO.

    If you have 2 eyes , its easy to see how the diff.
    Hands down the redfields.
    The only neg is the bit more weight , however this makes for a less shakey view ...
    They are in line with zeiss
    focus is super fast , and damn near a macro as well

    I hate to tell you that Redfields are not even close to being in the same field as Zeiss.They were a decent glass about 30 years ago but now they are complete crap

    I returned a pair of Nikon Monarch ATB because the first time out in the rain I had codensation in both oculars...
    Bought a pair of Leupold Cascades 10x42 and have been very happy....even yesterday I brought them in from outside and no condensation or fog even though they were very cold.

    For your price range these two would get my vote as well.

    Why 10x? 8x is sufficient unless you're glassing out west and then you're pushing it a bit with a $500 limit for those optics. Then again I'm sure somebody will chime in their $30 pair of Tasco's from Walmart are just as clear as his buddy's Swarovski or Zeiss . . .

    For the best quality, I will check Vortex Razor or Zen-Ray ZEN ED3.

    The next group will be Zen-Ray ZRS HD, Vortex Viper HD and Bushnell Elite.

    I am also impressed by how good some of the entry level binoculars are. There are many options: Vortex Diamondback, Nikon Monarch, Zen-Ray VISTA.

    I would love to see a pair of Redfield binoculars that are as good as the Zeiss FL's, and yes I have an old Remington Mohawk .222 with a Redfield scope that is at least 35 years old. Redfield's were not made for many years, but they are back and I do not know who actually makes them. If the Redfield binoculars are as good as the Zeiss FL's I need to sell my Leicas and buy some Redfields and save some money.

    I own a pair of the Yosemites they are ok for cheap glass(China),but not worth the cost.
    Also just looked through a pair of the Redfield Rebels(China)....they are junk!

    I currently use a pair of Cabelas Alaskan Guides 10X42 I bought them in the Bargan Cave for about 200 bucks,only issue with them was right eye cup was a little stiff turning up.......... a steal......yes as with all Bargan Cave purchases,non returnable!
    Still a great pair if I were to pay full retail.Clarity and contrast are phenominal!!!!
    Hey dumby....tired of your arrows falling out of your quiver? Save yourself 200 bucks.....turn it over!

    Maybe I do spend too much time in the brush....looking out.It's time better spent then at the truck....looking out!

    They are!
    I just chose the Nikons....Prostaff ATB 10x25 as a gift over the Rebels.The Rebel felt good and sound in my hand......but my eyes told the truth!
    Though more compact and also made in China the Nikons are FAR superior in clarity(sharpness)!

    Now this is a fine example of why you have to take every suggestion with a grain of salt....in this case a dump truck full!
    It's simple commom sense,no cheap,made in China glass......(I hope no one gets b*t hurt,but 149 bucks is cheap glass)..... is anywhere close to any Zeiss product.
    Anyone with 2(working) eyes can see that!

    My binoculars can beat up your binoculars

    OK, here is a specific request:

    I'm looking at this: Bushnell 8x42 Legend Ultra HD Binocular $150 after mail in rebate...
    What would be a better bow hunting binocular for the same price?
    Thanks in advance...

    I am positive ,
    Leupold came on board 2 years ago , 2010 , whole new recipe for glass -
    As far as Zeiss , Professional photographer for 25 years , Zeiss is a Hyper lens - Hyper sharp Hyper contrast - Makes for good black and white
    20 plus years ago they Zeiss was at the top of the game , some lenses being ground for years.
    If you own 8 , you know the deal on warentey and repair -
    Never mind what I think , just go out and pick all the pairs up side by side .....
    A blind man will see that the Redfields blow the Nikons away and are every bit comparable to Zeiss , In my humble opinion truer to life.
    Simply go out and have a look see for your self , better that way

    Just have a look see , I know its sometimes a novel idea
    You might just \"save your self some $ ?? However I do not think if you own Leica you will be repurchasing .........

    Panasonic carries a sub $300 camera with Leica glass now ........... just saying .....

    I have several pairs of Carson binos, and for the money I don't think they can be beat. They are super clear, bright, good FOV, and a no questions asked LIFETIME warranty. Just give them a try, you won't be dissapointed.
