Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent glass and price point. I have been running the 15x56 kaibab for 2 years now, PRS and hunting. I got these bc they were recommend by a friend. I actually used his pair before I purchased some. first PRS match I took them to, of course, they fell over on the tripod my second stage and bent the ocular housing. still able to use them the rest of the day. called vortex, explained situation, sent them in, repaired like new. after that I knew I was hooked. I have been able spot impacts out to 1200 yards with 6mm, and able to watch bullet trace. my last hunt in November, it was dusk. between the razor II 3-18 and Kaibab, able to put some meet in the freezer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye in the Sky I have always depended on 10x binos for my western hunts but decided to try a higher magnification lens for long distance glassing. These Kaibab HD opened up my eyes to long distance glassing. The full lenses clarity and a focal adjustment that doesn't require much adjusting when scanning changing distances makes this a pleasure to sit behind. Set on a solid base tripod it's amazing what you can see. It has filled a void in my hunting technic that I didn't realize existed. The only problem I have is my buddies keep asking to borrow it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent compromise between spotter and binos Purchased these last fall for a CO elk trip. They are great for glassing on a tripod if you don't want to haul a spotter around. Glass is good for the price point. They are a bit heavy but they are 18 x 56 so it is to be expected. Two complaints are the poor eye relief. Can't really use the eye cups because the poor eye relief requires your eyes to almost be on the glass. Second problem is the design flaw of the hinge point. You will pinch your fingers on the top of these if you are not careful because the plastic housing on top comes together completely when you spread the binos to full width. That hurts.
