Has anyone checked these older binos out?  Are they very bright, phase coated?  How is their view?

It depends on how old they are.  The older ones were not.  The current ones are phase coated.

 

I do not know a whole lot about them, but I've heard good things about the ClasiC roofs line.  Better than Conquest, but worse than VIctory.

 

Never looked through this particular one though.

Excellent binoculars, extremely rugged and durable.  Sometimes referred to as "self contained" because of the individual eye focus.  Small, light and handy glass.  We have customers that swear by these and won't use anything else for rugged serious hunting.

 

Like Koshkin pointed out, make sure you get the latest model.  The ones that are 20 years old look just like the latest production cosmetically but there is a big difference in coatings.

 

The set pictured above just sold on SampleList.com for $549.95
