Bushnell's not meeting my needs, advice please...

I have Bushnell's #13-1056 10x50. All these do is frustrate me. I'm not sure what I need to up grade to. I am using them for spotting far off objects across a mountain range, they are LAME for this purpose. :lol: I am willing to spend up to $500.00. Any suggestions?



Thanks

Hi SS

Why are these Bushnells frustrating you? Is it because the images it produces are too small or is it because the images are too fuzzy, or both?

If the images are too small, then you need to move into a spotting scope. If the images are simple too blurry, then upgrading to another 10x bino will definitely help.

Here are a couple of excellent binos in the $300-500 range:

Nikon Monarch 10x42 ATB, http://www.opticsplanet.com/nikon-monarchatb10x42.html

Kowa 10x42 BD42-10G, http://www.opticsplanet.com/kowa-10x42- ... proof.html
