Bushnell or Nikon

Postby swamp50 on Thu Jul 22, 2010 7:16 pm

I am trying to decide between the Nikon Action Extreme 7x35 or the Bushnell H20 8x42 Model #132408. I tried the Nikon 7x35 Action at Dicks Sporting Goods and they were great, but not water proof and fog proof. I bowhunt and rifle hunt in GA and enjoy woods and food plots so most time im not observing more than 150-200 yds. I am also looking to start 3d archery with my bow! Please help me decide dont want to spend a whole lot on binos and this companies are pretty reputable and durable. Thanks in advance!

Hi

Good for you on your bowhunting!

On these two, I would give a slight edge to the AE for optics, but either will be a good choice in this price range. Really very close.

Though a bit bulky, also consider Nikon Action EX 8x40.

Hi

The Legacy has better coating - FMC - and a closer focus. Better buy for the money.
