We received a pair of Minox BN 7x50 DC Binoculars from our friends at Pelagic Outfitters to play with. Like most serious fishermen and hunters, we here at BDO know that optics are not the place to "cheap out".
As soon as you take them out of the box, you can tell this is a quality pair of binoculars. Comfortable ergonomics, a rubberized coating and an overall solid feel gave me a great initial impression.
Immediately after unpacking, we all went outside for a little test drive. Right away we were impressed with its light gathering ability. The image was exceptionally bright and razor sharp.
I'm one of those people that have trouble with cheaper “binos”. I can never seem to align the images correctly and I quickly get a headache and stop using them. These “binos” didn't suffer from that issue. They adjusted easily, came into perfect focus and were comfortable for extended periods of time.
