Bought them for Truck binos for counting Cows, checking ear tags and such. Highly impressed with the clarity of the glass. Hopefully they hold up well. Not bad for a $106 pair of binos.

Good glass for the money and your intended use. I've had a couple of pairs but had bad luck after dropping both of them from a relatively low height like knocking off a table or from my lap to the stand floor. (Yeah, my bad for sure mad)

After the drops BOTH had the same problem of getting a double image that could not be adjusted out. Either worked OK as a monocular but would give you a terrible headache if you tried using them normally looking through both eyepieces.

Replaced with a pair of 10x42 Leupolds which cost about $100 more than the Bushnells. Can't tell any difference looking through them for the extra money.

After letting the Bushnells gather dust on a shelf I finally decided to see if their Lifetime Warranty was any good and sent both pair off to Bushnell Customer Service in October.

After about a month they fixed one at no charge. The other was not repairable and since I was totally honest about dropping them Bushnell offered me a new pair at a "special price" of $110 smirk

I decided to pass on their replacement price on the second pair. The pair they fixed are now backups to my Leupolds.
