I did a TON of research on all brands of mid-tier binoculars, and most of the reviews I saw used the SLC's as the standard to judge all other binoculars. I got tired of trying to decide on a pair of binoculars that were "close to the performance of the SLC's in (insert category here)", so I saved a bit longer and went to the source. Given the excellent price S&S offered, I didn't spend that much more than the mid-tier binoculars and I don't have to worry about whether I am using binoculars that could be just a bit better.
Unfortunately I didn't pull the trigger until after I filled my tags, but I am very impressed during limited testing while hiking and camping. Hopefully I can give them a thorough test next fall!
I have used viper HD’s since they came out with them and they have been back to vortex 3 times for repairs. I was ready to upgrade and finally decided to spend the extra for the Swarovski. Totally worth the money! Edge to edge clarity and much brighter at first and last light. First weekend out scouting and I was able to effectively count points on 2 bucks that were in the shade at 1000 yards. My friends that had other brands were not able to. They could tell they were bucks but that was it. You won’t regret buying these!
Great bino's. Got to use them this last weekend and couldn't believe the clarity and color definition in the dark timber. S & S are great people to work with. Talked with Rob and he gave me exact info I needed. Shipped fast and great price.
Waiting to get out on my first hunt, optics are amazing combined with relative low weight. S&S awesome to work with.
Great service and advice. Best prices. Super fast shipping on everything I've ordered. Thanks Rob.
