Any body had any experience with Zen-Ray Binos?I can't find a whole lot about them but what I have found sounds good.They are in that price range if the quality is good they might be a good buy.

From what I can find the company is a LLC company based in Portland OR.Were the binos themselves are made I have no idea.

I have never heard of them.  The fact that they are not talked about on this site says a lot.  I would spend your money on something that you can actually find info about.  There are plenty of very good binos in the $200 to $300 range that people on this site have reviewed and used.  Check the bino section, no need to spend money on something that has no info available on.

That is why I asked.I thought that they might be a new company that hasn't got their name out to the masses yet and someone here might have heard something about them.I will probably be spending my money on something I can get through SWFA but I thought I would ask around first.Thanks

I bought their summit binocular last year. It is pretty good for its price. The service seems to prompt. I lost a lens cover during a trip. They sent me a repalcement free, no question asked. Their new VISTA seems pretty decent for around $100. I haven't tried that model yet.

BTW they are made in China.

For Pete's sake!!!   I ( Mr. Ignorant   Bucky  )  --- have EVEN heard of them!!!  They are supposed to be fairly good for the money......however, luczik ( sp ), our resident binocular expert,  was not impressed with their literature......probably justifiably----but, they might not be bad for under $200.......I brought the name up once in a thread and was immediately squashed to death by the PROs ( but that's ok---it's only me Bucky ).....but not all of us leetle peons out here are really professionals......we just don't want to get binoculars that give us a headache if we look through them all day long , and we certainly can't afford Swarovski's.

I had their summit for a year and think it is totally worth every penny.  I just browsed their description on new simmit from previous link. The spec looks very impressive. It seems some major upgrades were done from what I have.
