Pentax PCF WP-II 10x50
I am thinking these for general use and with a tripod. I get prices from 128
to competitor at 189. The less one makes me wonder about the seller.Anybody verify a good price on these and whats a good tripod for these..will use them at about 4 ft. high.I thought about the Nikon equivalent but the glare comments turned me off. 
I like the idea of a spotting scope but its uncomfortable for me to look with 1 eye. Anybody have that also..??

thanks


Edit:  Please read forum rule #3 concerning competitor advertising.

The host of this forum, SWFA, sells this binocular, and they have a 110% low price guarantee, provided that competitive pricing comes from another authorized dealer of the product.

For something as small as a 10x50mm just about any lightweight tripod should do the job, however, stick with metal tripods instead of cheap plastic ones.
The glare you experience from the Nikon 10x50mm is more than likely due to the multi-coated optics. The cheaper Action model is worse than the Action Extreme ATB series.
 
The Pentax PCF WP II offers all of its models with Fully Multi-Coated optics, which reduces glare, better, over only multi-coated binoculars.
 
I have a similar problem, my eyes are much more relaxed and comfortable when using both eyes, as opposed to only one. 
When using one eye for extended periods of time my eye will begin to twitch uncontrollably.

Believe it or not, I have been able to round up no less than three, good, metal tripods at garage sales, yard sales, etc.  The most I ever paid was $4.00

You could just talk with a salesperson over the phone, at SWFA, and they would be able to simplify choices for you.
