Vortex Talon HD Binoculars
After several months of research I purchased the Talon HD 8X42 Binocular. Compared to my older open bridge design (name brand) 10X42 binocular these new Talon's are brighter, with a wider field of view. The image is very crisp from edge to edge compared to my 10X42's. The only complaint would be that my new 8X42 Talons are bigger and heavier than my older 10X42's even though both have magnesium open bridge chassis. Great binocular at a great price.

low light brightness
After trying many other high end binoculars, I kept coming back to the Vortex Talon for the incredible detail and sharpness when viewing items at a significant distance. When I called the company for more information, I was surprised at the immediate and helpful response from the representative. Being an American Company located in Wisconsin, was also a factor in my choice. The absolute lifetime warranty made it a no brainer. When viewing game at dark, the brightness is astounding. Why spend more when you can have outstanding quality at an affordable price. I wouldn't trade my Vortex binoculars for any other brand!

I got these for my birthday and love them. They are so incredibly clear.

like looking through RX glasses!
I bought these back in 2011 and have been blown away by their clarity and light transmission. The only problem I've had while using these, was they trumped my scope! 5 minutes of legal shooting light left a doe walked out about 250 yards away, and I could see the white hair on her snout but when I looked through my factory scope I could barely make out the deer's body. Another hunt I watched a spike eating corn 75 yards away an hour before daylight. You will not be disappointed with a Vortex product!
