    I’ve been looking for a new pair of binoculars, mainly going to be used for hunting. There’s so many choices out there it’s crazy. So far I like the leupold BX4 and the Nikon Monarch 7. Anyone have any experience with either one? Or maybe another option? Price point $500. Thanks for any input.

    I have the Leupold 10x50 wind river mesa , excellent
    I purchased a pair of Nikon Monarch 3 10x42 , they are very clear , but they have very poor lens caps.

    I've been extremely happy with my Leupold Rogue for under $100.
    I believe they were $89 at Academy.

    FWIW...I've traveled quite a bit with these binos. Out west in the Rockies several trips, to the beach numerous times, most recently on an Alaska inside passage cruise. I've used them hunting, boating, at ranges, and bird watching.
    They live in one of my two adventure bikes panniers or tank bags and have been subjected to 30,000+ miles of riding (ie...shock/vibration/temp variations, etc) and are as crystal clear as the day I bought them.
    I like their compact size and light weight. For my needs I can't imagine a better all 'round pair of binos for the price.

    Interesting. Seized up how? Pivot? Focus?
    The Acadia's just didn't feel right in my hands for some reason.
