Weighing in at almost three pounds these are a handful.
Are you planning on purchasing a tripod, or are you going to try and sandbag it?
The 20x60 is threaded to receive a tripod adapter.
I've had one since 2006.
The optics and optical coatings are excellent for a binocular in this price range.
The PCF WP II series has internal focus, which gives it a JIS Class 6 waterproof rating.
These are built very rugged
and should last you for many years.
As far as I am concerned, using two eyes, at 20x, is much more comfortable than 'squinting' with one eye for long periods of time.
If you don't like it, for some reason, you can always return it.
