Best binoculars under $1000

If you had $999 to spend on a new set of hunting/carry binoculars, what would you get?

Application is western long range deer/elk hunting and I carry everything on my back.

I'm currently using Nikon Monarch's and have made it around to thinking about upgrading.

Re: Best binoculars under $1000

i have almost the same post, posted for a week and only had a few suggestion. i have a pair of 10 X 42 pentex that i used for years out west, very good binoculars but when i up graded my scopes to high quality they fell short after 500 yards. So my suggestion is you need a set of binoculars that will at least perform to the scope and shooting ability of your rifle. Now i think i am facing 1500.00 plus for a set of binoculars to match my scope. you need to be able to see it or find it first before you can decide to shoot it. just my two cents.

Buy some Vortex Razors and don't look back. Just as good as Swaros and they have a lifetime unconditional warranty.

Mine are the envy of all my buddies who spent twice as much on euro optics.
