MARINE BINOC­U­LARS

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

MODEL 137500

Float­ing, wa­ter­tight, and cor­ro­sion-re­sis­tant, the heft is solid with a non­slip grip, though these binoc­u­lars weigh 20 ounces less than the Ca­bela’s Fathom. The ver­ti­cal ret­i­cle al­lows cal­cu­la­tion of dis­tance or height of an ob­ject based on the known height or dis­tance. The com­pass is elec­tri­cally il­lu­mi­nated with a mo­men­tary switch.

IN THE BOX: The ny­lon case in­cludes a neck strap and sec­ond strap for the binoc­u­lars, as well as lens cov­ers and man­u­als. CON­CLU­SIONS: We were sur­prised at their clar­ity con­sid­er­ing the price. The com­pass was il­lu­mi­nated by nat­u­ral and elec­tric light and easy to read in the left bar­rel. At 25 yards in bright light all testers could read half the let­ters on the bot­tom line of the eye chart, and in dim light half the testers could read half the bot­tom line. At 100 yards, the Bush­nells could re­solve line 6 but did not pro­vide enough clar­ity to read lines 7, 8 or 9. The sep­a­rate oc­u­lar fo­cus­ing was slower, but tar­gets over 100 yards were all in fo­cus once ad­justed for each eye’s strength. PRICE: $255
