Man you guys run some great glass! I still have not convinced my wife I need Swaro 10X42's. But I will have a pair!!

In the mean time I have used the Leupold Wind rivers 10X42 for the last 5 years. Eyes get tired after a while, I statred putting them on a tripod when galssing and that helps.

My Brother just got the Vortex, i think dimanod backs. THey are much sharper and clearer than my leupolds. He paid around $350. I ythink they are a great value at this price point.

I got my Swaro's back in 1989. I think I paid about $750 back then. I sent them in about a year ago for an issue I was having and for any upgrades. They ended up replacing the binos and sent me a brand new pair. They were about 4 months shy of 20 years old. You have to love service like that! Get a pair from a good company and you'll have them for life.

I have the Swarovski 10X42 EL's and they are the best I have ever seen. I have put them side to side with Zeiss, Leica, etc and in my opinion they are the clearest.

Swarovski or Leica, depending on specifics of terrain and game.

I have a set of SWARO 10x42 SCL's. I love them but SWFA has a set of MINOX HG 10x43 on sale for $599.95 normally around $900. If you can check out these MINOX's you may be very happy with them. They are very good glass, close or equal to my SWARO's.
