    I have them. I bought them late last summer. The reason I chose them over the 10x is because where I'm from is wide-open country (Mississippi Delta) in Southeast Missouri. You can literally see for miles around here as there are very few trees and the land is all farm land that has been precision leveled. I need to be able to see as far as I can without carrying a spotter. I can hold these very steady without the aid of a rest. However, I did look through a pair of the 15x slc's and I noticed every little movement and I didn't think they would be very useful without a rest of some kind. I love the 12x50 el's.
