Product Description

Completely redesigned for 2016, the Diamondback binocular once again redefines the price vs performance ratio in the world of optics. Functionally, as well as aesthetically, the short hinge and upscale sleek new look not only grabs the eye, but leaves more room for your hands - making them physically easier to hold.

An all new optical system with enhanced, dielectric fully multi-coated lenses serves up stunning, views and impressive low-light performance - critical attributes when working to glass up birds and other wildlife. And with their ultra-wide, best-in-class, field of view, you can efficiently cover ground and acquire subjects with ease.

    I have both of these binoculars, the 8x32 for compactness and to lend to a friend on an outing and the 8x42 as well. They are both excellent quality and superb viewing optics.

  5. New Diamondback 8 x 42 Binoculars 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2016 Oct 8th

    We have owned a few pairs of binos over the years and my eye sight is not as good as it used to be for hunting. I researched what I needed in a pair of binos and found these 8x42 diamondbacks to be the lightest clearest I have had to date. My wife was using them in the back yard and spied a squirrel building a nest in one of our cedar trees and I was able to remove it before it ruined the tree So thank for your speedy shipping and I might add free shipping. If in the future I need product you will get my business. Did I mention the price yet, the best price on the net. thank you. Evan
