Still undecided but seems like I’ll hold off for now. Really think the Leica 10x40 3200 RF would be good except uncertain if I would like the extra size and weight. Hoping to get a pair or comparable in my hands in the field.

Where are you located?

I have those, you could use and see what you see. There's lines of sight over a mile pretty close to my place.

Fireman, I really really appreciate that offer. I will probably take you up on it. I go through Greenville and on through Sherman somewhat regular so you shouldnt be too far off course. Otherwise, you are two hours away and I would make that drive if needed. Ive been wanting to meet you anyway. Maybe Ill bring a rifle or two and kill two birds with one stone. Probably needs to be low light to really get a good test.
Ill probably pm you.

I have both the Swaro TA and the 8x10 Leica Pros. I travel all over Texas but not sure exactly what part of Texas you’re in....
I assume somewhere out west? I have a trip to Odessa planned for next week and would be happy to travel a reasonable distance for you to try them.

>Fireman, I sent you a pm.
>Wytex, the Leica Pro 32s are 8x arent they. Ive always used 10x and not sure I could change. However, they are smaller so I havent completely ruled them out. DStroud offered to show me his pair so I may take a look. I always carry a camera that zooms to 125x(use like spotter and often carry spotter also), so maybe I dont need the 10x....

DStroud, thanks very much for that kind offer. If we can work something out, you wont have to be the one doing any extra driving.
You said "8x10" but you meant 8x32, correct? Im sending you a PM.

Sorry might have missed you wanted 10x.
I've looked through the older Leica rangefinding binos and while nice they weighed a lot.
My 10x42 SLCs work for glassing and a cheaper Leupold 1600 ranger finder works well enough.
Spouse acquired a Gunwerks G something a few years back and the laser in it is impressive.

Good luck with your search and choice, nice offer above.

If you have the time and are interested in the Leica Pro’s 8x32 here is as thorough as a review as you can possibly get.

DStroud, I read a long time on that review and skipped over a bunch I wasn’t interested in. Then I realized I was just on the “introduction”. Goodness, must be longest review ever. I’ll get back to it and maybe get through by Tues. Thanks

I’ve had two real nice offers from forum members to let me try out their binos. One I tried out yesterday and another one scheduled for tomorrow. I’ll give a report afterwards on both after tomorrow.
I’ve got my eye chart ready to use-wish I had it yesterday.
