My 11 year old son is looking to get himself a decent set of binoculars. Rather than go cheap, he is going to spend a bit more (a ton for him), to get quality. He only has 300 max. We spent the day looking at Vortex Diamondbacks, Nikon Monarch 3's and 5's, Zeiss Terra's, and Leupold...can't remembers. It's hard to tell in Cabelas, but it seemed the Nikon Monarch 5's were the sharpest and brightest of this bunch.
Any other recommendations we should also consider? Obviously, sharpness is important, but low light is also really important.
I know of good deals on Meopro's, but I have only seen the Meostars, which obviously doesn't count. Also, Minox is out there and maybe some others. Even found a set of Weaver SuperSlams online that some people say are great, but none of these are available for me to look at for him. Interested in how they compare to the Monarch 5's and maybe the Terra's as these seemed pretty close, with the Monarch's seeming a bit brighter.
