I searched the forum and was shocked not to see a bino review discussion. Well here we go, what's the best binoculars for hunting for the money? I'd like to stay under $200. I'm hoping to get reviews from yall that have tested a couple out and not just the pair you bought.

Gracias!

My Nikon Prostaff 7s 10x42s are clear to my eyes. My wife got me the camo ones for Christmas one year so they are a hair over $200 at $219. The regular 7s is slightly cheaper but not sure of the differences if any at all. The lenses have a slightly different tint to them from pictures online.

I love my Celestrons. Inexpensive, and are very clear to me.

Nikons are a good choice. Good glass, though they aren't the sturdiest of binocs. Just don't beat em up and they'll last forever.

I see so many that are 10x. I would prefer and 8x. I hate to buy foreign glass but even Luepold is selling foreign made in the compact glass.

check out the Redfield 10x42's. Redfield is made by Luepold, I really like the pair I have.

I have two pairs of Nikon's (not sure the models) but think one are monarchs. One pair I bought because mine got busted and I was in Kansas, the other pair is for when I take the kids or family with me. Both are great glasses and under $200.

Made in China. I may have to buy a foreign pair but I'm holding out . . .

Most any bino with a price tag of $200 or less will be Chinese, no matter what brand is on it.

Wait for the Black Friday sale at Amazon. I got a pair of Steiners last year for $50. They're awesome.

so is there a huge difference/preference in porro vs roof prism? I'm seeing the higher end binos are roof prism.
