after much debating about whther I should go with monarchs or leupolds I went to an outfitter a few hours away and was quite impressed with how much better the olympic 10x50 looked than the monarch 10 x 42's.
so after searching prices for a set of 10 x 50 olympics i see the tactical 10 x 50
the current plan is to get a pair of non reticled leupold 10 x 50 tacticals, ( which seem to be olympics in a coyote brown) , to me it would be worth the extra $80 over a set of standard olympic 10x50s to have them in a coyote brown with the molle style bino case.
but I see these pinnacles at the same price as the leupold tactical 10 x 50 and am wondering just how much better they could be.
the olympics say they have bak4/bk7 aluminum enhanced prisms and the pinnacles say bak4 silver enhanced prism.
I have heard that bak4 > than bk7 but the olympics say they are using both, not really understanding that part either.
I will be spending alot of time in a tripod stand trying to pick deer out of the tree line at ranges of 180 yards to 420 yards away. there are some less than 100 yards shot but they dont really require bincoulars.
heres some pics of where I will be using these binos mostly..
