Have been running 12els for last 4 years, nls just took over that spot.
S&S was great to deal with, highly recommended
Exceptional ergonomics, they just feel great in the hands. Went with the 12's because they have the same FOV as my old 10's. Absolutely fantastic optics, no complaints at all. Light, feel good, A+ optically, what more could you ask for? Highly recommend these binos. And S & S service went above and beyond for me.
I wanted to go to 1 set of binos for all hunts. I had a pair of 8x32 and some big 15x56. Just finished a week with the new 12x42 in Montana. They're perfect. I get the extra magnification over the 8x32s, but the FOV was plenty wide enough that I didn't feel like I was missing anything. And, they're light and compact enough to carry around my neck all day. I am very pleased. There's gonna be no more trying to decide which pair of binos to take!
