Hello all,
I know this has probably been asked but couldnt find it. I am looking at either a set of 8x42 meopro hd or tract torric binos or Athlon cronos. Any opinions on which way to go if you have looked through any or all? I have been eyeballing the meoptas for awhile but just found out about Tract. I also have a athlon spotter that I am very happy with but not sure about the binos? Any help is appreciated thanks!

If you can be patient, I'd watch the classifieds here. You'll be able to get close to some $1K glass on the second hand market for $500.

Those Leupold McKenzie 8x42's that are on there now are awfully nice glass.

I've tried the new Meopro HD (both 10x42 and 8x42) and sent them back straight away. So much distortion that my eyes could never relax. Other folks love theirs though.

Tract Torics are good bins and you might be able to find one of the older pairs for $500 or less.

If nothing else, give Doug a call and start trying out different bins. You can return them if you don't like them.

Under $500.00 would still allow:
Athlon Cronus
Meopta Meopro
GPO Passion ED
Kowa BD II

Please give a call so we can discuss which would be best for your use.
