The binocular is a compact roof prism design. The prisms are made of BAK-4 glass material which insures hi-fidelity colour rendition. Our lens surfaces are ‘multi-coated’, for maximum light transmission. The binocular is waterproof. Tested in water one and a half metres deep for a period of three minutes without letting in water, so you will never have to worry about getting caught in the rain. The binocular is also nitrogen filled so is fog proof. Its rubber armoured body makes the binocular easy to hold thanks to the ergonomic body shell design, it protects the binocular from impacts – it’s at home in any weather and any terrain! The binocular also feature twist up rubber eye-cups. These enable the user to get their eyes in the perfect viewing position whether or not they are wearing spectacles. A great deal of effort has gone into the ergonomic design of the binocular, they’re not just pretty to look at, stunning to look through, they are also comfortable and safe to use.

Focus-WheelThe first thing most people will probably notice is the ‘Series 2’s new focussing wheel’. This is a completely new design, made of metal, this has enabled the factory to completely re-think the focusing process. They have produced this striking fine toothed design which has a large contact area with the user’s finger making the focusing experience precise and controlled.



At first glance the body armour may seem just elegant and stylish but Grip-Mouldinglook a little closer Ergonomics-2Ergonomics-1and you will see the reason for the moulding. Notice the use of a very tactile non slip moulding in the recessed side panels of the binocular. These help the user to keep a firm grip between thumb and forefinger in enhanced comfort, greatly reducing the chances of dropping the binocular. The sweeping moulding on the top of the binocular forms a ridge for the user’s fingers also lessening the chances of ‘a drop’ but at the same time adding to the comfort of the viewing experience. There are other enhanced features of the ‘Series 2’ range such as the change to metal twist up eye-cups which are more precise than the plastic option and the addition of a soft padded deluxe carrying strap for total comfort.

We think the ‘Series 1’ and ‘Series 2’ represent probably the best value for money available in the marketplace today at their target price points – but we would wouldn’t we! Well just so you won’t have to take just our word for it we are sending the ‘Series 2’ to be reviewed by two of the industries most well respected reviewers; Jason Whitehead of and Mike Alibone of ‘Birdwatch’ magazine. As soon as we have their reviews we will add  links so you can read what they have to say ~ so watch this space!
