Leupold 174395 overview

  • 1Description

Sporting large objectives, a powerful magnification, extra low-dispersion glass, and their proprietary Twilight Max HD Light Management System, Leupold 12x50 BX-4 Pro Guide HD Binoculars, in First Lite's Fusion camouflage, deliver bright and sharp high-contrast images with true-to-life color and crisp clarity even when observing at long distances.

Image quality is enhanced through the use of phase-corrected coatings on the prisms. The lenses are made of high-transmittance calcium-fluoride glass, which, by their nature, limit reflection and increase color fidelity and contrast. The Twilight Max HD system complements the glass with index-matched lens coatings that were specifically engineered for the calcium-fluoride lenses to raise the already-high transmittance across the entire visible spectrum — with special emphasis on the blue and violet wavelengths that are most prevalent in low light, such as at dawn and dusk. Their large 50mm objectives gather generous amounts of light to further boost performance in less-than-ideal conditions, while a generous angle of view helps to reduce the appearance of distracting hand shake that is often associated with powerful optics. All of these optical features work together to present the user with a comfortable and immersive observational experience.

Designed to withstand the rigors of the trail, the optical tubes are nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to make them waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made from an aluminum alloy to make it lightweight and corrosion resistant without sacrificing strength and stability. To further cut weight while providing users with more area to grip, Leupold employs an open-bridge configuration with a dual hinge. Its oversized, knurled center focusing wheel allows for sharp focusing even while wearing gloves. For long-duration glassing sessions, or to reduce fatigue and visible hand shake that are common with high magnifications and large objectives, the Pro Guide HD can be mounted on a tripod or other support system using an optional adapter.

Optical Performance
  • Powerful 12x magnification is optimized for long-range identification and observation
  • Large 50mm objectives are designed for maximum light gathering for use in low-light conditions, and to offset the dimming that often happens with high-power optics
  • BAK4 roof prisms deliver a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • High Definition (HD) extra low-dispersion calcium-fluoride glass lens elements reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations for increased contrast, improved color rendition, and sharpness without distortion across the entire field of view
  • Phase-corrected prism coatings reduce internal interference to improve contrast, clarity, and resolution
  • Twilight Max HD Light Management System improves color, clarity, and contrast using index-matched multi-coatings that complement the optical glass to ensure maximum light transmission across the entire visual spectrum — especially the upper blue/violet range to enhance low-light vision
  • Wide 60° apparent angle of view helps to reduce the appearance of distracting hand shake that is common when holding high-power optics, while presenting an immersive observational experience
  • 263' field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Open-bridge/dual-hinge configuration reduces weight without sacrificing strength or stability
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold or wet conditions, or when wearing gloves
  • Locking right-eye dioptric adjustment on focus wheel allows for precise focusing for sharper and clearer views
  • Twist-up click-stop rubber eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear; textured for easier handling with gloves
  • Tripod mountable with optional adapter for hands-free use to eliminate vibrations and arm fatigue
  • Comfortable 16mm eye relief reduces eye strain for easier viewing
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover pupils as they open in low light to keep the entire scene in view at all times
Construction Details
  • Bridge design provides more surface area for hands to improve grip security
  • Lightweight and durable aluminum alloy housing
  • Nitrogen-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions

    Leupold 174395 reviews

    12x50 BX-4 Pro Guide HD Binoculars (First Lite Fusion Camo) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Pair of Really Good Binos I've owned higher-end Leupold scopes before but never binoculars. I've always made do with cheapo binos. I started searching for a really good pair about a month ago and narrowed the field to the BX-4 Pro Guide HD 12x50s and a similar set from another maker. I've always had great experiences with Leupold products and service in the past so that was the clincher. I received them today and...Wow! Crystal clear from edge to edge, no distortion and very, very bright. After adjusting them to my eyes I can't believe the detail I can see with these binos even at extended distances. They have plenty of eye relief for me and they aren't at all too heavy for their size. I'm very happy I went with Leupold. I have two very minor complaints: 1) There is no provision to tether the eyecup covers. The supplied strap doesn't work for that. A pair of binos that have an MSRP of almost $900 should have a way to secure the covers when the binos are in use. 2) The instruction manual doesn't cover how to adjust the diopter for proper focus for this particular model. It appears that Leupold hasn't updated their manual for the Pro Guide HD series. That should've been done before they started shipping this model. Other than that, these binos are a fantastic piece of gear and I'm very happy with them.
