Bushnell Porro Prism H20

Hello all. I am posting to see if anybody has any comments on the Bushnell H20 Porro Prism. I am a casual user and my budget is under $150, so please do not comment on you get what you pay for. Comment on how these compare to others within the price range. The main reason that I am buying these is to spot deer under spotlight, but i will use them for other things as well. Bass Pro is selling these for $99, but I have found a site online that has them at an excellent price of $65 with free shipping. It seems as though it would be hard to pass them up for that price. Does anybody have any comment on these binos? Do you think that a deer at 150 yards under the spotlight would come up clear? Here is a link to Bushnell site for the binos.

Hi

The 8x42 H2O porro is the way to go if you are concerned about optics. The H2O roof models are definitely a step down in terms of optics. That said, the 8x42 H2O porro is a lot of bino for the money and probably your best bet under $100. I would rate the bino as doable for your application, in so far as an 8x42 would be appropriate.
Thanks for posting with us
