    Great Binos For Sports Events

    By Teddy

    from Glendale, Arizona

    Comments about Leupold 8x42 BX-2 Acadia Binocular (Black):

    i just purchased these binoculars and haven't had much time to use them but have taken them to a MLB field. Our seats are in the upper level and the 8X42 really work great to pull the action in. The provide a wider depth of field view than I expected. I probably won't use these on an elk hunt but for sports events they seem to work very well. The carrying case seems to be of a fairly cheap material but what can you expect in that price range? Overall, I am very satisfied with this product.

        Comments about Leupold 8x42 BX-2 Acadia Binocular (Black):

        I was looking for a good set of full size binoculars that combined rugged construction, good optics and less than $200. I settled on these binocs and have been very happy with my purchase. They are bright and clear with a very welcome wide view and an even more welcome close focus distance. Having the diopter adjustment behind the focus knob rather than near the eye piece is also very nice. Some of the cons are it is rather heavy compared to my old compact nikon binocs (though light-weight compared to other full-size binocs), and the included case, strap and lens caps are super cheap (though not surprising considering the overall price).

            Very good glass and well built. Have used their rifle scopes in the past so I was expecting a lot from this brand...and they delivered.
            Easy to focus with a close focus distance that brings in birds at 8 feet!!
            captive lens protective covers are a plus.
