Re: Big Eyes Brackets

Ok, here's a question for y'all... I was looking around Bushnell's sight the other day for the Spacemasters, and they only seem to come w/ variable power eyepieces nowadays. So where does one find 20-22x eyepieces for 'em?

Thanks,

Monte

Swift sells 22x WA eyepieces for their Panther Spotting Scope that will screw into the Spacemasters. I dont' have any experience with the Swifts but others have installed them in their Spacemasters say they are just as good as the Bushnells.

How far are you planning on glasing and what are you hunting?

Reason I ask, I have a set of German Flak glasses that are 10X by 80mm that go on a tripod and are very good for glassing.
these are in very nice condition and I'm asking $500.00 for them.

Not to try to undercut anyone. But for those on a limited budget, who need decent glass but don't have much to spend.

Bushnell makes a 16X50 pair of Binoculars that Wal-Mart sells for $70.

The clarity isn't on par with the top of the line names. But they will work fine for most hunters who are new to shooting long range. I've used them many times to find jackrabbits shaded up under a bush 1,000 yards out, and coyotes well over a mile out.

There is NO comparison between the 16X 50MM Bushnell handheld binoculars and the 10X 80 MM German Flak glasses.

The clarity of the German flak glasses is just about unsurpassed.

Many of us use these glasses for Longrange hunting and they are a superior optical unit to most anything else you will look through. In most cases you get what you pay for and a pair of handhelds are not in the running at all for a full days viewing compared to bigeyes.

If a person is getting into the LR game, one of the best investments is a decent pair of optics for clear viewing all day. Have not seen ANY hand held units that you can do that with yet.

Handhelds don't have the focal length or the eyepiece diameter that we can put into bigeyes or what the 10X 80MM Germans have.

A longrange hunter "must have" list;
1. An accurate longrange rifle.
2. A real good rangefinder preferably military.
3. An excellent set of optics and tripod for all day viewing the far mountains.
4. A hunting partner to spot the shot with a real good set of optics too.

$500.00 to $1250.00 is the going price for a decent set of optics/bigeyes.
