I plan to purchase in the near future. Need experienced opinions on which model to use mainly for 3-D and Field Archery. The Diamondback HD 10x42 or the Crossfire HD 10x42. Thanks in advance.

The Diamondbacks are worth it. There is a bigger difference in the quality of Diamondbacks and crossfires than there is between the Diamondbacks and Vipers.

I have the Vortex Raptor 8.5x32 because they were on sale for $69 (nice). Unfortunately these are my first ever binos, so I have nothing to compare them to, but I love them! They could be a bit better in low light scenarios though.

Get the diamondback 12x50's.
What this guy said ^^^

I don't think they're particularly great binos for hunting but perfect for checking targets.

i had the same question when shopping for mine. I ended up going for the Crossfire. Granted im getting a touch older and my eyes have never been great but "I" could not see enough of a difference between the 2 of them for the price. I went Crossfire and the money saved got rolled into me being able to purchase/upgrade other items needed.

I couldn’t tell a difference between crossfire and diamondback. The only difference I saw when looking through the raptor was more clarity in the peripheral area.

For me, Diamondback HD 8x32 have been money from the deer woods to glassing varmints <500 yards with my rifle. >500 yards I would be looking for a 10x or 12x and possibly a tripod.

No experience with either the diamondback or crossfire but I have a pair of 8 x 42 viper HDs. Very satisfied with them.

Agree perfect size for archery. Using a Kuiu bino pack, but looking into a marsupial for up coming seasons.
