    What Optics & Power do you use? And are you happy with them?

    I’ve been using the Swarovski 10×42 SL (Black) for 12 years now. They have been an awesome piece of equipment. I’m a firm believer that a good quality optics is my number one piece of equipment!

    Nikon Monarch 10x42s here and love them. Excellent value for the price.

    If money was no object I’d have some Swarovski ELs, though that’s a ways off.

    I currently use Swarovski 7x42SLC’s which i love in the thick woods
    and
    8x42EL Swarovski’s are always on the dash of my pickup.keep the
    Nikon 8x30s in the mule.
    also use a SWAROVSKI STS80 SPOTTING SCOPE FOR the long stuff.
    have a pair of 10X42 Leicas ,were a gift,that i usually keep loaned to
    someone.

    quality binoculars are a lifetime investment.buy the best,
    one day you to will have 50 year old eyes. loved my Nikons
    when i was 35 but time wears on.

    if i was a young man with $2k to spend on an archery setup
    and binoculars,no doubt it would be a $1800 pair of Swarovskis
    and a $200 pawn shop bow, that $1200 XT setup will be worth $50
    in 10 years and SWAROS more than what u paid for them
    think about it

    You have some very nice Optic’s there!

    When I was 18 and living on my own, working two jobs, I bought my Swarovski SL 10×42 for $899.00. And that was A LOT of money for me then. But looking back now, buying them has been my best investment I’ve every made for my hunting equipment. I could easily sell them for what I paid for them, and they have found me many of bucks bedded in the sage brush.

    I also have a pair of older Swarovski 10×50′s that I keep in my truck 24/7 They are too heavy for field use.

    My buddy picked up those 10×42 EL and I REALLY like them! But I can’t justify the $1900.00 bill, when I have such a good pair now.
