Has anyone used the outdoorsman bino hand and Leica bino holder? Do you like or dislike either for any specific reasons?

I didn't pick up either yet but will likely end up with both. I think the Bino Hand is going to be best for me but I dont like that you lose some interpupillary adjustment. I frequently have kids hunting with me that need the adjustment. Leica adapter will be best for them.

Before I would buy both I would get the outdoorsman stud installed and use their Bino adapter.

Having done both I wouldn’t recommend the stud over the bino hand, both work well and in my experience the stud isn’t worth the added costs.

Yes for Geovids. I like the smaller size of the bino hand over the Leica. Looks like I would make a good rifle rest of the tripod too.

For me the stud install made sense in my els. I have the screw in stud in my 15x hds and the bino adapter I keep in the front pocket of my marsupial harness.

But....still cost more then the bino hand. And you can’t put the stud on your next bino when you upgrade.
