I have a chance to purchase these for $1000 all in, 2009 model, but lightly used. Glass is apperently mint( havent seen them yet just talking online with the owner)

Are they worth it>?

Pros and cons?

Depending on what you have now but I would say for sure as long as they are legit. Lowest I have seen the 8.5x42s is around $1600 used

If they are EL's in good condition they are worth 1300-1500 on eBay easily. So if all as described, it is a very good deal.

Lorne,

I wouldn't risk it. Getting caught up in something over saving a few hundred bucks might cost you a lot more down the road.
