I traded for these binoculars on another forum. They were advertised as "new, never used". Well that was BS. They were filthy, no original packaging material, and one objective cover is AWOL. A little Zeiss lens cleaner and a lens cloth and they cleaned up very good.

I like them but I want to try the little Kowa 6x porros and the Vortex Raptors before I settle. I already know and love the Leupolds.
These are right up there with the Leupolds, but larger and a little different color. The focus ring is a little more stiff in one direction than the other. It confused me at first, not sure if it would smooth out over time? That's the only negative thing I can say about their quality.

85$ shipped to you. Fastest way to get me is text 720-984 eleven fifty three or email skanomad [at] gmail
I've got a few knives for sale also if you'd like a package deal.

FWIW, I've owned that model for about 3 years and they just accompanied me on another road trip/hunting party and have suffered unduly for all these years and are still just fine. They are really a good view for the money...  much better than Nikons in price bracket. I never used my lens caps beyond the first day, they are useless to me. Great binos.
