Looking for a 10x pair of binoculars mainly for whitetail hunting. Looking to stay under $700-800 if I can. Lets hear some recommendations. Thanks.

Vortex mid upper level vortex are hard to beat for the money. I own swaros
If I lost them I would get the vortex because of vie and feel
Camera land has 10% off this week

Second the vortex line. You can get some really good to excellent 10x42 talon HDs for around 450ish, well below your price range. You could step up to the next level but the talons are great for the price, beat out most higher priced binos in my eyes at least.

That's a great price range.

I'm a vortex fan. But you got lots of great options... meopta, minox, Zeiss. .etc. .


you watch some of the demo sales you could possibly get into some swaro's.


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

I compared his vipers vs his Swaro elc in the field head to head. Yes Swaro was better but def not $1200 more

Some of the Minox or meoptas are great to but had a much heavier feel. Feel and weight is also important
