Vangaurd Spirit ED 10x42 Review
on 12 November 2012
I have recently purchased a set of Vangaurd Spirit ED 10x42 Binoculars to replace my old set which I have had for many years and were not great quality but did not cost that much. I had purchased a set of Nikon Binoculars from Argos ( £99.00) and was very disapointed with them. I took them back to Argos and got a full refund with no problems. This made me think that I needed to pay more for a quality set and as I will probably have them for the rest of my life I decieded that I would do my deep research project and see what was available in the marketplace. So on to Google to do the research and see what was available.
Found a very interesting website called Best Binoculars and Binoculars Review website and they provide a very comprehensive review of all that is available and with quailty reviews of what is out there and believe me there is a lot and very difficult to make a choice. However I was drawn to the review on the website that the Vanguard Spirit ED 10x42 were the set that I should purchase. Recommended best buy for 2011. So sent away for them throught Amazon and alougth thy were out of stock I decieded to wait for them. A week later they arrived and WoW what a fantastic piece of engineering. Very high quality, easy to use and comes with flip down cups to protect the Hight Quality Optics. A Quality case and strap is included and they dont weigh much like some of the others available.
So what is the quality like, Well I have to say that I was more than impressed with the quality of the optics. Looking through the lenses was like 3D and 10 Times better than the Nikon ones that I had tried. So much detail was available and I was taken aback with the overall quality and detail. In essesence I was very pleased with them and would highly recomend these to anyone who is thinking of buying new or replacing an old set that they have been using for years like I had been doing.
Amazon was the cheapest place to buy them and also Vanguard were offering a £40.00 cashback after purching by sending the voucher that is available on their website. So A quailty set of Optics at £234.23 on Amazon and got a cheque for £40.00 back from Vanguard was simply the best buy that I have had for many years.
