Wondering what people opinion is on the Weaver 8.5X45 Super Slam Binocular. I really like the idea of a 45MM objective and 8.5 power seems perfect because sometimes I wish my 8 had just a hair more magnification. 10x can be harder to look through if you're not steady.


I found some brand new for $450

They would be a buy for me at $450, there are no retailers for these over here !

Of the recent 8.5x45s the Super Slams are amongst the heaviest, and priciest, but offer one of the widest fields of view at a grand.

I've just draw up this list of binocular weights and fields of view as I'm looking to buy another similar.

Weaver Grand Slam 8.5x45, 700g, 104m
Bushnell Infinity 8.5x45, 708g, 104m
Nikon Monarch X 8.5x45, 720g, 110m
Vanguard Endeavor ED 8.5x45, 770g, 114m
Bresser Montana ED 8.5x45, 885g, 115m
Weaver Super Slam 8.5x45, 885g, 122m
Vixen Artes ED 8.5x45, 907g, 122m

Having used both non-ED and ED bins at daybreak and at dusk I'm not convinced of the need for ED glass for my use ; chromatic aberration just isn't an issue at these times.

A comparison with the Vixen would be useful, even though it looks like a rebranded Nikon.
