View Full Version : Binocs under $400

04-27-2012, 10:04 PM
Looking for a good larger set of glass under $400. Curious no one ever mentions steiners, weaver, or much about Bushnell. I have a pair of Bushnell legend hd 10x36 i love but looking for bigger glass for the pickup. Any suggestions? Reviews and opinions on any brand and the afore mentioned? thanks

Look at the Vortex line. Great Binoculars for the money.

Up your budget about 40$ and you can have a pair of zen ray ed3.

Search them on this forum, there is alot of talk about them on here.

How big are you looking?

Thinking 12x and anywhere around 40-50 mm

Tough to find good high-mag bins in that price range.

I would look for used Minox.

I agree on the Vortex I have a pair of 10 powers that I have used for 2 seasons now , Im not easy on stuff and they are great.

I have to go with hvfd on this one, I picked up a pair of vortex within your budget listed and couldn't be happier.
