    10x25 Compact Binos

    Hi Guys. I'm thinking of trying a pair of compact binos for my daytime shooting. Anyone got any lying about not getting used?
    Would prefer 10x25 and in new condition but anything considered for the right $$$.
    Thx in advance

    I used to own a pair of Swarovski 10x25 pocket binos. Shouldn't have sold them.

    Pocket binos are relatively cheap compared to their full size counterparts, so I'd recommended buying the best (i.e something from Swarovski, Leica or Zeiss Victory).

    Pocket binos often suffer from minimal eye relief, funky ergonomics, and small exit pupils - but the top of the range models can make up for those things with their top shelf glass.

    I'm now running Swaro 8.5x42 EL's, and while the lowlight performance is great; for daytime viewing, I doubt they offer more in the way of image quality over the Swaro pockets I used to have.

    Fine during day time hours - but as per usual with all Optics - $$ spent show up in poor light/dusk etc

    But for $240-ish good for money
    Mine live in Quad
    8x or 10x32
