disappointed - 09/18/2013

by RANDYDEE from New Jersey

I sent these binoculars back and eagle optics were quick to issue a credit to my pal pal account. They are excellent. However, the binoculars disappoints. The fully multi coated lenses were not clear and sharp. In fact, I have a pair of Celestrons 12x60 binos for under 100 bucks that gave me a sharper focus. I will say that the binoculars are rugged and built to last a lifetime. Want a good pair of binoculars for under 250??? I am going to do you a favor. I collect binoculars. Get the Bushnell (yes Bushnell) legend ultra HD 10x42 binoculars. They have the new and advanced ED coating that you find on Carl Zeiss and high end binoculars!!! I used to thumb my nose at Bushnell. After all, I have owned Nikon Monarchs and Steiner night hunters! For the dollar, I am happy with my new Bushnell binoculars. Do your online homework. Almost Every owner gives theses babies 5 stars. I just did you a big favor. Thank me later!!!

First set of decent binoculars. 12X provides some great the expense of some slight shakes if trying to read smaller items...but for quick positive ID of items at a distance..fantastic.

Excellent Binoculars - 03/06/2012

by Robert from Oceanside, CA

I'm not an expert in the field of binocular evaluation, so I can only tell you that they compare favorably to my Zeiss 8x20B binoculars. To my eyes, the Vortex Diamondback 12x50 are just as clear and crisp as the Zeiss' and cost considerably less, about 45% less. To be fair though, this is not an apples-to-apples comparison, but, none the less, it is indicative of their quality. Additionally, I believe they are an excellent value for the money and have an outstanding warranty. The warranty was one of the main reasons I chose this brand over other binoculars of similar quality and price; it gives me peace of mind knowing that if I ever have a problem, it shouldn't be a problem to have it rectified.

Vortex Diamondbacks a Diamond in the Rough - 10/03/2011

by Jeff from Arizona

I own a Viper scope and already am familiar with the quality of Vortex optics but needed to increase the magnification in my bino's. I have used Swarovski 8x30's for the past 20 years since winning them in a contest. They are awsome but I cannot afford something like that anymore. I needed something powerful but not huge for deer hunting here in the southwest. While at a hunters clinic the Vortex sales rep had a number of the high end optics and the Vortex side-by-side. Not only are my Diamondback Bino's as clear and crisp as my older Swarovski's but I was able to get them for around $300 vs. $800 or more. I have the tripod mount on them for glassing and am thoroughly impressed. I looked at the Viper Bino's and decided someday I will need to replace my Swarovski's.

Great product for money spent. Impressive optics, and clarity. Eagle was so easy to deal with and package arrived in 2 days with free shipping. I absolutely recommend both!
