Little jealous. I want your job. You have had lots of money landing on your doorstep lately. Interested to see how the two big spotters compare. What size binos are those?

I am totally waiting to purchase a 60mm or 65mm this year based in reviews and what comes out. Really want something hopefully to hit 60x and be reasonably priced and HD. We shall see

Stinky,

I promise I am not slacking. Last night, shortly after delivery, I had the Prominar 88 and ATX 85 side by side in the fading light. I took some notes. Of course, I am just getting started, and don't want to muddy up an evaluation by posting about the first blush.

My buddy has a Kowa TSN 883. Its a seriously impressive glass. I could never afford one but its easily on par with the big 3

Well Matt how's my stuff working?

Peddler:cool:

Hey Skip!

Glad to see you here on Rokslide!

I had the Prominar bins in the field glassing for bears yesterday...



The real put-up-yer-dukes is between the Swaro ATX and Prominar 884 though...

I am awaiting delivery on my new fancy-pants resolution chart. I am not getting resolution differences between the Kowa 884 and Swaro ATX85 with my usual credit card test targets.

You may be surprised, you probably won't see any difference there. i thought i sent you the review that birding digest did with Air Force resolution charts, It will be interesting.
