Dennis my wife bought a cheep set of Simons binos many years ago and I didn't have them more than 2 weeks and one of the lens's cracked so I went back to the store where she bought them and got them exchanged.

Well to make a long story short those got a cracked lens also.
I will never ever buy that brand again. :angry: <_<

Dennis, the Legends aren't terribly expensive, and are possibly the best Bino's for the price of any made. Just my $.02

Hi Dennis:

Sorry I am slow to respond. My daughter is visiting from Louisiana and I have been with her and the baby as much as I can.

There are many things to think about besides pricing, such as: the usage, magnification, prism system, rolls up/twist down caps, coating...etc.

Off the top of my head I am thinking (yes, I do this occasionally) that there are a few that would work well. Give me a call sometime and we can go over various questions. I can also send you a catalog with all the specs. The ones that come to mind that would fit into your pricing are:

*Legend 134028, 8x42: Best $$ I found at Optics Planet: $249.00 (A little more than what you wanted to spend)

*Trophy 238042, 8x42: Approx: $115.00 (This is what I use)

*Trophy 230142, 10x42, (You will need a steady hand when you go 10 or above on magnification) Approx: $127.00, Oh I do have a pair of 10x42s Bausch and Lomb?s, but... I save them for the drag strip. :yes:



These all have Bak 4 roof prisms, twist up caps, waterproof and fully multi coated optics. For specifics such as FOV, eye relief, weight, etc... Give me a call.

Dennis,

I know this is an old post, but I just topped off my new Savage muzzleloader with a Bushnell Elite 3200 3 X 9 and my son got me a set of Bushnell 8 X 42 Trophy binocs for xmas. In Canuckistan, a set of Trophy bino's will run about $175. Since christmas, I've been sitting in the evenings watching the tube with my new binocs strapped around my neck and taking every opportunity to power in on the hunting shows (and the odd member of the opposite gender). Anyhow, my family think I'm nuts, but that's O.K. That way they're more apt to let me out to play in order to think that I'm regaining my sanity!!!!!!!! ;) :rolleyes:

Good to know someone else is on the same page as me.........well at least when it comes to equipment selection.

One other bino accessory I would highly reccommend is the Bino System from Crooked Horn Outfitters. The black ones cost about $20.00 but they are worth every penny. They distribute the bino weight from your neck to your shoulders and back. What good are binos if they get left at home or in the truck because they make your neck ache. Oh did I mention they keep the binos fairly tight to your chest and provide a little resistance when you raise them to look and seems to steady them. Can you tell I really like mine.

Agree with Paul, the Bino buddies are worth the change. Having a spinal injury it is nice to carry my binos painfree on those long hikes into the mountains.
