Decent binos?

Looking for a decent pair of binos for an elk hunt out west. Any suggestions on good or bad pairs out there

3-400 if possible...wouldnt mind spending a little more if the increase in quality is worth the increase in price.

Also obviously wouldn't mind going below that price too

Love my new Vortex Diamondback 10x50's got them for $165 on cabelas. They are running that deal now too, as is optics planet, with free shipping

Numerous GREAT binos in that price range. Zeiss, Steiner, Leupold, Nikon, Vortex. Most all with LIFETIME warranty. Sales all over the net. Size you are looking for is big factor. Vortex tough to beat for the money and great warranty that is fully transferable.
Look into MidwayUSA. Have HUGE selection and good prices.

+1 on the Diamondbacks. I borrowed a friend's set of Monarchs to take out west last year, then bought the Diamondbacks on Black Friday. The Nikons were good, but they don't hold a candle to the Vortex, IMO.

Bushnell Legend is pretty good glass for the money.

I bought my dad a pair of Steiner Predator Extremes from optics planet, I got him the 8x42.............they are very impressive glass for the price point that they are at....

You can get something decent in that price range.I'd go some place where you can look through a bunch before making a decision.I have a pair of Leupold wind river cascades that I feel naked without.They were less than $300.I went with them even though I was prepared to pay much more.

Re: Decent binos?

Check out rokslide.com, they have a classified section. Might find a good deal on something high quality and lightly used.
