I use the monarchs in 8x42 and am very happy with them but I want a higher powered tripod mountable pair. I have confidence in the monarchs and am unsure on any others. Max price range is 700 and not a penny more, less is better. Operating STRICTLY within this price range..... Would I gain anything with a vortex viper hd or a ?  Monarch bino's are the only real reference I have. Please throw any suggestions in that price range my way. Money matters so my top end really is my top end. Thanks

This size binocular is going to require more than the Monarch in my mind in order to get
a quality view.
SWFA handles the Vortex you mention, and also another one to consider is the Minox 15x56.
The Minox may be a very good choice and they can be found in demo. for easily your price
range.

Would you pursue the  minox over the vipers?

I have not tried the Vortex, but I have the Minox 15x58, the older big brother, it is highly
rated, and the 15x56 Minox should be on your short list.
These 2 may be the tops in your price range, I cannot think of any others, but I do hope
more will chime in.

+1 on the Minox. May can find Fujinon HB as well. Good luck.

15x50 vs 12x56 is apple vs orange. If everything is equal, Viper will have better galss/image. I used to own Monarch 10x42 ATB as last week. Now I have Minox HG instead, big improvment from Monarch. I almost bought Viper HD if I did not ran into a good deal with my Minox.
