I bought these binoculars for a sailing trip along the Baja California coast this spring. I searched extensively to find the best sailing binoculars for the money, and settled on these. You can buy better 10x50 binocs, but these are a great bargain for an inexpensive pair. You'd need to spend 2-5x more to get a better pair, and these performed well day and night. I also had access to some more expensive pairs during 3 weeks on the ocean, and am still satisfied. You definitely need the 10x50s if you're on a moving platform like a sailboat. Optics Planet was also great in providing advise, and quickly handling a customer service issue!
Pros: Inexpensive, great features, will do the job
Cons: not the best optics, rangefinding reticle is not adjustable
