    Hey fellas, I'm looking for a good set of binoculars with good glass and hopefully 50mm objective. I was thinking 10 x 50 or 12 x 50. I'm new to long range hunting so would ask for yals recommendations. I seen recently where camera land had burris landmark II 10 x 48 and also nikon 10 x 50 binos on sale, both for less than 100 dollars. Would these be good buys? Just getting into long range hunting and want to do it right, however, after building the rifle, getting the G7 scope and BR2 range finder I'm starting to get tapped out and am wanting to make good deals. I have a couple of simmons 10 x 50 binos now but just the other day I left them outside and a rain came that night and the next morning they had water floating in them and took several days to dry out so, I would sure like a water proof pair and one that has a large enough objective to allow me to see in low light of the morning and evening. Anyway after all this, what say yal for sugestions? Thank's, Brad

    Brad, Nikon offers the Trailblazer ATB 10x50. While it's not in the under $100 range it is under $200 and has all the great features you would expect out of quality hunting binoculars. Waterproof/fogproof,protectivearmored coating,bright resolution and Nikon's Excellent No Fault Warranty. I hope this helps you a bit? Drop me a note if you have any questions.

    there is no decent glass in that price range from anyone. your looking at at about 500 bucks minimum for good glass

    Not exactly what you mentioned for criteria, but i use leupold (windriver) yosemites in the 8 power version. atleast 10 people have purchased these after looking through mine. for the money they are incredible. they come in a 6x or 8x. i originally bought these for archery shoots that limit you to this power of magnification, but now i use them for glassing hillsides from my longrange perch!

    cabelas has them on sale for 89.99 on a regular basis. just my opionion, i am very happy with them.
