At the DSC convention yesterday and stopped by Minox

The guy showed me a pair of binos that he said were using crystals and a different gas.
They seemed amazing inside the show and were better than their HDs

anyone familiar with this?

I wouldn't run it past a manufacturer to bring ringers to a trade show.

Didn't see any "crystal" binoculars. They had a new entry level binocular and some cool new 34mm tube tactical scopes.

David --
The reason your url didn't work is because you tried to link to a competitor's website and the forum settings replaced the name of the company in the link with "competitor."

Please read the forum rules you agreed to when you registered your account. Optics Talk is provided by SWFA, an optics retailer. It's not only against forum rules to post links to SWFA's competitors, but it's rather impolite to use the very forum they provide for your free use to post a link to one of their competitors.

Also, the forum software is configured so you can't post pics or edit your posts until you have 50 posts.

Well Leupold uses diamonds in their Diamond Coat so feeling that pressure I'm sure Minox didn't want to be left out of the technology race.

























LOL
