    Nikon 10x42 binos

    a pair of Nikon Monarch 10x42's - older model ~7-8 yrs old. Does not state "Monarch" on the binos & I dont have the original box anymore but I believe that's what they are. Top end Nikon gear ~$1200 at the time, a gift from mate in USA.
    Excellent optics. In very good condition, glass no marks or scratches, always carried in bino bivy. Yours for $500 pp (including Cabelas bino bivy).
    I've upgraded to RF binos. One lense cap missing, but always protected in bino bivy.

    clearly I need new glasses, my bad. Correct these are Nikon Trailblazers & 8x42s. Drop price to $300 pp, not fussed at all if they don't sell as I'll hang on to them as a back up. Stand by my comments these are very good glass ... to my eyes. No, they are not top end euro glass, but none of the many deer spotted over past years have known the difference.

    You should increase the price for that. Lower weight, wider FOV, brighter image, larger exit pupil, less shaky image. What's the world coming to...they just don't teach kids to think in school nowadays. Anyone seen my monocle? And they steal everything in this home, won't allow me to have anything sharp or pointy.

    Well that is obviously due to your shaky hands @Cordite.

    Damn, think I'd get hung if I tried to sneak another pair of binos in. I've been impressed with the Nikon gear I've had/got/used.

    That sounds an attractive option. NB that judicial or spousal or selfie execution by neck rope is properly referred to as "by hanging", or "hanged". He was hung refers to a male pornstar. But full circle, to become one, all u gotta get is a pair...(of 8 by 42s). (-:

    I know, I'm tired...
