I have the 12 power predators and I love them. Steiners are the best binoculars going in my opinion. I also have the 20x80s and those things are just bad to the bone.

ive got a pair of the 10x preditors. There good glass for the money. Especially if you find them on sale like i did at cameraland. There not 1000 dollar glass so dont expect them to compare to some of the better units but there a good solid performer in the under 500 dollar price range and one thing stiener has going for it is a reputation for being tough as nails.

I bought a pair of Stieners 30 years ago. They are 12/40's and are named Hunting. They are rubber coated and no longer made. They look like the current Military/Marine. At that time i believe i paid 500.00 for them. Don't be afraid of Stiener. I bought thier 2.5/10x42 Predator Extreme rifle scope 2 years ago. Best scope money i ever spent.

I feel Stiener could do a better job of advertising thier products. I know the Predator Extreme scope is assembled by Burris here in the U.S.

Re: Steiner Predator binoculars how good are they?

The thing with Steiner is they have military and government contracts and are selling and making plenty of money that way. Most of their line is centered toward that aspect and not really hunting optics. Although I will say the steiners are by far the most well made binoculars going. If they are designed to withstand the rigors of combat they can handle just about anythig any hunting trip can throw at them. I love both pair of mine and wouldn't trade them for any other big name glass maker out there. There is nothing finer than a nice pair of steiners.
