I was given a pair of Steiner Pro Predators recently(birthday).Instant focus type....they are outstandingly clear and crisp in the open country,but take them into the thick brush and woods :thumbs_do your eyes have a hell of a time looking through one thing to see another.
"You can't see the forest for the trees"!

I figured I better get something I'm happy with!
We stopped by Cabelas on our way out of town.
They weren't open yet!!!!!!!!
It's opening weekend of deer and elk and the Worlds Foremost Outfitter doesn't open until 10!!!!!!!!!!!

Man we're gonna be on the hill mightly late if we wait!

I know the importance of good,comfortable glass,so we wait!

To make a long story short(er) I found a pair I'm happy with.
Cabelas full sized 10x42 Alaskan Guide.



My question is....
Who builds them for Cabelas?

Meopta makes their Euro binos, but I have no idea who makes their Alaskan Guide binos.

the guy at the optics counter there said the cabelas label stuff are hit or miss so make sure you open up the box and check them out really well before you buy them. He said just stick w/ a known brand....I went w/ some Leupolds on his advice and they are great for the money.

Just my personal opinion but I believe 10X is too much power for an in the woods binocular. I like the 7X Adams Edition that Bushnell puts out.
