Steiner compact 8x22 Predator binoculars

Postby mag1 on Wed Sep 29, 2004 10:33 am

I'm looking for a decent, light weight bino. I currently use a cheap compact simmons. I get eye fatigue, and alittle quizzy in the stomach when using them. I did notice a previous post on hunting bino's. I will have to try some. How do the Stiener 8x22 compact preditor's work? Do you have any other suggetions to look at? Pentax, ect... I would like to keep it under $200 if possible. Thanks

The symptoms that you describe are caused by a binocular that is out of alignment and in need of repair. If the binoculars are inexpensive, it is probably not worth repairing them.

For a compact hunting binocular under $200, you have several excellent choices. The Steiner 10x26 Predator,, is certainly one of these.

Other good choices include:

Nikon Team Realtree Hunting 8x36 or 10x36, ... e8x36.html

Pentax 8x40 PCF WP,

Minolta Activa 8x40 WP,

Meade 8 or 10x42 WP,

All of these are waterproof and all will cure your queasy stomach and tired eyes!
