I have a pair of 10X42 Leupold Pinacles that I would like to get off of my neck. What type of sling do you use and recommend?

 

Thanks

I think most designs are similar and do a pretty good job.  I have Crooked Horn's myself.  The one system that I have seen that I thought was by far the best was a setup that supposedly came from GALCO.  It was leather and based on their shoulder holster system and flexed perfectly with your body movements.  I called GALCO to order one and they acted like I was crazy and said they never made such a system.  I have never been able to get any info on this system.  The individual who owned it purchased it from a gun show, so it could have been a custom conversion.  At any rate, it did say GALCO on it and it did have a model # (GALCO said that was a non-existant model).  Thus, unless you can find the "Phantom GALCO", I think everyone else is pretty close in quality and price.

     We offer the latest design in binocular straps/slings. The actual name of it is a bino-suspender. It is designed to distribute the weight over your shoulders. No weight at all is actually on your neck, hence the word "suspender". The conventional strap allowed for the bino's to dangle loosely around your neck when not being used. The bino-suspender's eliminate that by keeping the bino's close to your chest.

 

They are available in various brands:

 

Butler creek bino caddy...$9.50

Kahles Bino Suspenders...$29.95

Leupold X-treme Binocular Strap...$19.95

Swarovski Bino-Suspenders...$26.95

Burris Bino Sling...$19.95

I would go with the bino caddy from Butler Creek it's cheaper and does the same thing with out having to pay for the name! $9.50 from S.W.F.A Inc.
