Can someone please give me info on these bino's. I am comparing them to the razor hd's mainly. I can get a new set of Razor hd's for $1000.00, and can get a new set of steiner peregrine xp's for $1200.00
Can someone please fill me in on which one is the better deal...thanks again.

I can't tell you about the Razor's, but I can tell you about the Peregrine XP 8x44's. I have compared them to all the top end euro's and IMO, they are as good optically as any of them.

There is a link to a review I did on the Peregrine and Peregrine XP

I agree with Roy in that the Peregrine is a fantastic binocular.  I have seen the Razor HD, both versions and they are good binoculars.  However, I have not had them and the Peregrine XP side by side.  My gut tells me I'd probably go with the Peregrine XP at the $1,200 price you seem to have available.

so you would pay the extra 200 more for the paragrines over the razors, right?

Yes I think I would...IF the extra money was not a defining issue.  If you have it to spend you won't regret the purchase.

Thanks guys, 1200 is a lot of money for me, and I will only be able to afford to do this once. I hunt out west and live in North Dakota, so this is a very big purchase for me. If I buy these hopefully I will never have to buy another pair as long as I live.
Klamath...didn't I read a post from you somewhere that you stated you really liked the ergonomics of these bino's a whole lot? thanks again

That question was asked on a thread today at BF and I answered it by saying my favorite ergonomic package is the Peregrine XP.

If I were you I would not buy either.

I would look for a deal on a lightly used Zeiss victory FL which can be had at your $1200 price point.

The peregrine is a nice overall package but test after test I have seen shows they are behind in brightness compared to other top end binoculars. I have never been impressed with the view.

I went through the same thing last fall. I had the peregrine and cabelas hd side by side and kept the cabelas. They can be had at Bargain s Cave for $ 715  Same as meopta meostar. Check them out.

If $1,200 tops you out and you want a deal for that then get on the phone, right now, about this SWFA sample list Nikon 8x32 EDG.  This is about half new price $2,500 or so.  They want $1,249.99 for it.

Looks like it has been there for awhile, so I'd ask them about why that is.
