    Good Binos

    What are some brands of binos that are good value for money and won't break a school boys bank.

    Can't remember of the top of my head. You may pick up a secondhand pair of Yosemite for that too.

    I have nothing really to add except "good" and "cheap" are rarely found together. Good yes, cheap yes, bit good and cheap......mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    I am still saving for some goodies rather than try and "trade" my way "up"

    2 - 3 hundy though should get a reasonable second hand pair though

    I have some Bushnell H2o 10 x 42. They were under $300 and are ok. Cant complain about their performance in reasonable light. Not as good as my Minox but then not as expensive either.
    Yes @BRADS. We are all aware of your dislike of anything Bushnell.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    I was referring to the 'like'. Your comment seemed a little more pragmatic gobo.
