I still my use Leupold Wind River Glass. I have had them for about 15 years I think. They were about $275 /$290Bucks back then . My hunting buddy has a great pair of Swaro's 10x50 they are just incredible. I think they were about $1000.00. So at 5;50 pm I can see its a buck, he however , can count the points.

Buy the best bino's you can afford. Swaro 10x42 EL's for most uses. Swaro 10x32 EL's if I'm packing. Buy twice, cry twice...

Having no idea on your budget - I’ll throw out the Maven C1 10x42. I picked them up for $350 brand new and I am impressed. While I have little experience to compare them to, we were glassing elk out past 800 yards and I never thought the better on clarity. For the price, and the amount of glassing in my immediate future, I am extremely satisfied.

Bought a pair of store demo Swaro's 10x42 EL's 4 years old and have no regrets. However, I snagged a pair of 8x32 EL's for far less on Ebay and absolutely love them. It's all I hunt with now. It is as previously stated, there's a ton of good glass out there a lot cheaper, it's all up to your budget, and LOOK BEFORE YOU BUY!!

Several years ago I bought a 10X42 Vortex Diamondback binoc from Cabello's and never regretted it - good deal. In addition to shooting rodents and bird watching, I like to sit out on my deck at night with a cold beer and look at stuff up in the sky. I can see Jupiter's tiny moons with the Vortex DB 10X42's but there is some lens flare effect. I plan to get a 15X56 DB's (look good in store) to use with a tripod. I have to admit Swaro's are the best I have seen but pricy.

Depending on how deep your pocket is. I started off with some very cheap field glasses. Moved onto Leupold 8x 35 and still have them. From there I move to 10x50 Swarovski. I kind of wish I had moved to higher end binoculars a long time ago. High end Binoculars where you should go. I know they are prices, but that what you are going to use the most. Get a tripod too to set up to glass. If I could I would have them glued to my eyes during hunting season.
