Eagle Optics Shrike 8x42 Binocular

From K.M. in Peru, Indiana:

5/5

Thrilled!


I am a beginner birder and avid wildlife watcher and have been researching binoculars for awhile. I wanted a quality binocular but not too expensive. I also needed a binocular that would work with my eyeglasses. 

I am a beginner birder and avid wildlife watcher and have been researching binoculars for awhile. I wanted a quality binocular but not too expensive. I also needed a binocular that would work with my eyeglasses. Several online reviews led me to Eagle Optics and to the  especially, because of the longer eye relief (which is important if you wear glasses). 

I am thrilled! They are beautiful and feel good in my hands. And the lenses are amazing. They do indeed work well with my glasses, but I also find that there is enough focus control for me to use them without my glasses on (and I am wicked nearsighted). 

I'm still getting used to using them -- finding the right place to point them when I bring them to my eyes; turning the focus wheel the correct direction to adjust (and birds don't stay still long enough!) -- but I am having a grand time! I have even been getting a good look at the moon and plan to venture into "binocular astronomy." I highly recommend these binoculars.
