Good solid quality, but wouldnt pay much over £100
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 January 2016
Hadnt realised these were of chinese origin. Theres a lot of poor quality products arriving on UK shores and even price cannot offer any confidence of quality these days. These arrived well before the scheduled delivery. On inspection, the product felt solid and robust. The price was discounted to £95 from £250, its now £163 so make of that what you will, It certainly looks like a great bargain eh, however i wouldnt have paid much over £100!
And i also note from my experience across that contininet, this is a practice favoured by savvy-sellers, who remain convinced it influences westerners buyers - maybe so!
The button which turns on the red compass and range illumination is placed awkwardly towards the centre, so its quite a stretch for ones finger to depress, and ive got large hands. The buttons action doesnt feel good, if you catch it right it'll turn on, but it does take numerous press attempts. A big frustration as night falls.
If your used to operating binoculars with a (traditional) centre spindle to adjust focus, be advised these do not, they utilise a left and right eye piece focus sytem. This can take a bit of getting used to and it's fiddly, so if you are wishing to keep your movement on target to a minimum, either accept youll need to practice or look for the alternative focus system.
I received the product with the wrong instructions, after an email i received the correct ones by return, so good response for after sales.
