    Binocs under $400

    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.

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

    I would look for used Minox.
