Swaro 10x42 EL's.

The brightness, clarity, resolution, detail and contrast in colors of the EL's is purely amazing.

BTW, welcome to the site.

Man you guys run some great glass! I still have not convinced my wife I need Swaro 10X42's. But I will have a pair!!

In the mean time I have used the Leupold Wind rivers 10X42 for the last 5 years. Eyes get tired after a while, I statred putting them on a tripod when galssing and that helps.

My Brother just got the Vortex, i think dimanod backs. THey are much sharper and clearer than my leupolds. He paid around $350. I ythink they are a great value at this price point.

I got my Swaro's back in 1989. I think I paid about $750 back then. I sent them in about a year ago for an issue I was having and for any upgrades. They ended up replacing the binos and sent me a brand new pair. They were about 4 months shy of 20 years old. You have to love service like that! Get a pair from a good company and you'll have them for life.
