Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bino but with a purpose ! I've worked selling this product in sportsmans warehouse and I show this product to a lot of people that struggle with keeping their hand steady. I ended up buying this for my grandpa for Christmas and you can't beat the price in stores. A lot of even younger people prefer this for in the trees hunting! Not to much zoom that you see right past your target animal but just enough to see him bedded down in the dark timber. I'm a vortex guy for life because you can't beat their VIP warranty or the best quality glass for your dollar ! I hope when you guys look for your next set of binocular you consider vortex and you take into account what size is best for your situation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Customer Service I bought a pair of Diamondback a few years ago. I recently had a problem with the right eye optical. So, I sent the binoculars to Vortex for repair. Turns out the replacement part that was needed is no longer available. Instead, they sent me a brand new pair of their latest model. I received them today, about 2-1/2 weeks after I sent the originals in for repair. I'm blown away and will be a Vortex customer for life. As for the binocs themselves..... I love them. Great clarity, easy to focus, originals were reasonably priced. Thanks to everyone at Vortex!!!
