    They are the 10X50 Wind River Porro Prism binos and they are still crystal clear almost 25 years later.

    Just upgraded binoculars to a pair of Maven 9x45's. Did an enormous amount of research into many models outside the usual 3-4 brands hunters use. Came away really impressed with the knowledge of astronomy and birding site folks who like brands like Minox, Steiner, Pentax, Docter, takahashi, fujinon, kowa, etc. just as much as the others like Zeiss, Swaro, Leica, leupold, and vortex. I was able to try just about every pair Maven had at a show in Cody and with 25% off at the show decided to pull the trigger.

    Now I just gotta see how my wife and daughter respond with retaliation purchases. LOL.

    I have a nikon archery rangefinder that I typically use instead of my vortex 1,000.

    I also run a Pentax PF80 ED spotter.

    My 7 year old pair of Zeiss rangefinding binos were stolen at the end of last fall.. which sucked obviously. I debated what to replace them with all winter, and eventually decided to not get RF binos because I no longer am guiding so they aren't as necessary, and I have a good leupold handheld I use for archery anyway. I decided to go with Maven 11x45 for now.. I have been using them for bear season and shed hunting, and am very satisfied with all aspects of them so far. After coming from a $3k bino to these, I thought I wouldn't be happy, but I am very much satisfied with my purchase so far.. as far as spotting scope, i run a Kowa 77mm, and ill put that up against all of the big 3 in every aspect any day of the week.
