Awesome optics, not sure about Steiner's customer service

by Mark, from Canada, NB Written on September 18, 2014
First the good: Excellent optics, by far the best binoculars i've ever owned and absolutely worth every penny if a clear view is important to you. Compass is equal to the optics, excellent graduations, to the degree and settles in nicely for perfect shots. Range reticle also quite useful...and although i'm no mathematician, easily calculated. What was also impressive was the low light condition viewing...compared to my other 50's these things are literally night and day different.

The bad; well, the ClikLoc for the strap on starboard side of mine didn't work...on further assessment was the strap and not the binoculars. I did contact, or attempt to contact Steiner to share the problem with them but no reply in over two weeks. Two possibilities come to mind, either this Clicloc system isn't what it's cracked up to be and theres lots of complaints or there's no complaints and they are taking their time getting back to me. Luckily it appears to just be a bent plastic lug on the strap so if they don't get back to me I'll just order the floater strap.

As for the weight of the binocular that some have issue with...yes, a bit heavier than some but i personally like the feel of something substantial...not heavy enough to cause me grief for sure and certainly quality of the optics greatly "outweighs" any weight question....
Pros:
  • Amazing optics
  • distance calculation reticle!
  • Accurate and steady compass
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

I own another Steiner and consider this model an upgrade and I was not disappointed. the clarity on this model under any condition is fantastic. Only, caution is that Steiner's are not usually the lightest Binocular you can own, But, if you are not the most careful person and are very active and therefore subject to bumping and dropping then Steiner's are a great pair as they can certainly take the punishment
Pros: Excellent Clarity
Cons: Not the lightest ...
Would recommend: Yes
