I will probably be buying some new binos this season, I want a set of 10X power and want to keep it under $1,000. I am upgrading from Nikon Monarchs and have considered the following brands, but only have experience with one of them. I tend to like the comfort of the rubber eye cups better, as I hate the discomfort of my current Nikon's eye cups. I plan on using them for 2-5 hours a day for three hunts this year, each a week long. Vortex Viper 10x42 $600 I have used these in the field and like them Meopta Meostar 10X42 $899 Cabelas Euro 10X42 $799 Nikon EDG 10X32 $999 and -SLR D3000 rebate (at Cabelas $1,899???) Minox HG's $500-1400 Please reccomend any that I may have missed that could be a better value. I like the Swaro SLC HD's but at $2300 they will not be in my pack anytime soon.
