I’m in the market for better binoculars, 12x roughly in the $1k range, looked through a pair of bx 5 hd santiams was impressed with them, has anybody tried these & say the bx 4 pro hd’s? Are the 5’s worth the $600 more than the 4’s? Any other recommendations in my price range? Should mention they’ll mostly be used for predator, varmint & deer hunting in Pa, unfortunately no plans to get out west in near future, thanks for any replies or suggestions

I have 3 pair of Leupold Gold Rings and had a set of 12x BX4's. The Bx4's are gone. Sold to move over to Tracts.....

Better than the BX4's or BX5's, to my eyes....
