The only thing I didn’t like about the cradle is switching between people. My hunting buddy has beady eyes, he always closes the binos up a bit to look through. It’s harder to do with the universal adapter vs. a stud.
Slides in from the eyepiece side. Fit is really good and solid.Great idea on the kydex!
2 Questions: 1. Do you slide in from the front or 'snap' down in from the top? As long as they don't slide around it looks pretty bombproof! 2. Can you still fit them into a bino harness while in the kydex?
Personally I'm running the Outdoorsmans stud in my 12s (and previously in my EL 10s). I enjoy their whole system (micro pan, qd, plates for binos/spotter/gun rest).
Last- I would consider a better tripod... protect the investment you've made in those binos!!
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
