What are you thoughts on the Redfield Rebel 10x42 binos?

Bought a pair and the lense adjustments were problamatic. I'd go with something Vortex makes for the warranty.

Ditto. Not very good in terms of focus in the field of view. I'd save up a little and get something better.

Decent binoculars for $100 if that is your budget and lifetime warranty for original owner backed by Leupold. I have been using a pair for the last 2 seasons. The adjustable eye piece on the left side came loose this year and I will be sending them after squirrel season wraps up. Will report if have I have any issues with the warranty.

Edit. Little disappointed when I bought them that they are made in China as my Revolution scope is made in USA. Guess that is to be expected in this price range though.

What is a good pair at the next price point, say $150.00? I need a pair for the truck.

I picked up a pair of these for 200$ on eBay a year or so ago. They are very bright and clear. I like them second to a pair of Zeiss I bought used.

Well I picked up a pair last week to keep in my boat. Im not sure if I'm going to keep them even though I haven't looked through them but a few times. I am happy with the glass but they are very finicky when trying to focus them.

You are right, I probably should have upgraded my hunting binos with a new pair of Vortex and put my Nikon's in the boat, but I really didn't want to spend much money right now.

Well after going to Cabela's and looking at the Vortex Diamondback's I decided to purchase them. The past couple years my eye sight has been giving me issues causing the need for wearing glasses since the middle of last year and the Diamondback's seem brighter and are easier for me to get focused.
