BigEyes..announcement

I needed REAL good ones. They did not exist. I spent a year looking at all options and now have what I believe to be the ultimate. They are Swarovskis. There will be 4 models in the BigtEyz Predator line. They are available with 20,30, and 45 piece eyepieces. They are obviously expensive and not for everyone.

I got a little carried away and now will have a website "NextCountyOver" in place by startup May 1. I will carry Long Range Optics and Shooting Accessories.

I will carry products from 4 high end optics companies. Products will be added at 1 a month as I ramp up. I will be carrying these to 1000 yd shoots and other gatherings on the EastCoast only to start, so that shooters might look at them first hand.

Pricing will be finalized by the 28th of this month.

I now find it incredible to look through my fine Leica 8 x 50s for scanning and go to the BigEyz and have the same clarity AND true color!! Life is good.

I don't know where to host a picture anymore, so for now anybody interested can email me for a picture.(Please let me know a good picture poster.)

I will remind board members when pricing is complete and the Website is started on May 1st.

Randy,
Did you know that many years ago Swarovski marketed a set of big-eyes, two of their spotting scopes in a large shroud-like holder. The eyepieces swiveled in an arc so that you could adjust for correct spacing I believe, at least something moved.

I looked through them many years ago at a writer conference in Salt Lake. They were a catalog item at the time. They were superb, we managed to find elk on a mountain miles away. Jim Morey from Swarovski could tell you about them as he was demoing them at the time.

Good luck with your venture - top quality optics are worth every penny.

Re: BigEyes..announcement

Ian, I had heard about them but my Swarovski rep was too young to remember!
Said he was unaware of any. I will be a Swarovski specialty dealer with these bigeyes. There is little in my world as exciting as first class optics that bring far in close.

I hope somebody gives me a posting site for the picture. Got to go do some field testing on hogs at 3:00. Life is tough!!

Re: BigEyes..announcement

IanM,
There's a fella at the NC 1K Club that has a set of those Swarovski's that your talking about. I've used them twice this year during matches for spotting. I don't know if they haven't been taken care of or way out of colmination or what, but I couldn't get them dialed in and had to sue different bigeyes to spot with. Being they are someone else's equipment, I couldn't just go messing with them. But that is the only set of Swarovski equipment I've ever been disappointed in.
I think I have a picture of them from my newsletter photo's I take. Will look tonight.

Randy,
Good luck with your business. Like I told you before... I would be interested in looking through them at VA sometime.


Steve
