They can easily adjust from 20X to their maximum 144X with a simple press of a lever, providing sharp, clear images.

They are shock-resistant, light, and easy to handle with their rubber grips; a tripod is recommended for stability at maximum zoom. Sturdy ABS construction.

Positively a great gift
from North Bay, Ontario, Canada
This, with the tripod, was a gift for a client who had purchased a new home on the lake. They thanked me for my thoughtfulness and used them immediately. Most impressed with the magnification. The items arrived very promptly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great quality & value
from St. Petersburg, FL
I live in a waterfront high rise. Equally helpful looking at boats near and opposite side of the bay (10 miles). Much better than a telescope.... easier to use.

fit for my need
from Coventry, CT
not easy to focus as long as patience matters, but with this zoom level, I'm satisfied with it. it works much better with tripod. Will recommend to friends.

More a spotting scope than anything
from Seattle, Wa
As mentioned by other reviewers, these "binoculars" are narrow field with extreme magnification. This limits their "general usefulness." Field of view is fairly bright for this level of magnification... but unless you really really need hi-zoom spotting functionality, you probably want a different set of field glasses. (you might consider a dedicated spotting scope, with generic tripod)

Not good.. Bad collumnation.. Sent back!
Bad collimnation (can only look through one binoc at a time). Spherical aberation (bad lens quality). Sent them back. Ended up keeping the tripod I got with them though.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

By Peoria Bob
While this product looks to be well-made, I found it far too difficult to focus and the left and right eye images fail to completely merge together into a single image. In addition, they do not have a mounting for a standard tripod...you have to buy their tripod to also get the adapter for the glasses. Misleading because I already have a standard tripod that is far superior to the one offered in the catalog. I immediately sent it back.

It is our goal that you are fully satisfied with all of our products and offer the Lifetime Guarantee to ensure that any product which doesn’t meet this expectation can be easily returned to us.
Needs tripod but good
These binoculars are powerful but shaky without the tripod. I also wish the lens capswere attached so I wouldn't have to figure out where to store them when walking.The tripod could use a better design as only the legs are adjustable instead of up and down like video camera tripod to add more height for tall people.This whole system works best when seated. Get a better design for tripod!

Bigger & heavier than expected but terrific binoculars. Hard to hold steady at max X without a tripod.
