From Richard N. in Point Richmond, CA:
Better than I expected
I bought the Vortex Razor HD 8x42 Binocular without the opportunity to try it, but knowing Eagle Optics' sterling reputation, I put complete trust in the person who helped me over the phone. These binos are better than I even expected!
I'm over 70, wear glasses, and just don't see as well as I used to. In my volunteer work I have to read wing tags at pretty significant distances. My Razor HDs do the job beautifully (within my own optical limitations, of course).
One thing I really like is how bright the image is, even in very low light. I'm particularly impressed with how the color on a bird really pops when viewed through the binoculars. I have a Swarovski scope. and have used Swarovski binoculars. I really can't see a significant difference - except in the price!
After I'd had these binoculars for almost a year, the diopter adjustment malfunctioned. Getting them repaired (at no charge) by Eagle Optics was seamless. Even though I was without them for only a short time, I really missed them. Thank you Eagle Optics!
I would recommend these without reservation.
