I was going thru the warehouse looking at what's there and I decided it is time for us to start a "Deal of the Day". This, of course, is assuming I find the time each day to do this, lol. We buy lots of demos, close-outs and assorted deals and sometimes we buy demos from a few different shows and wind up with enough to offer crazy cheap deal on something awesome. Everyday we will do our best to come up with a great deal for you as our way of saying "Thanks for all your support"
Todays deal is on a brand new Minox BL 8x33 BR Binocular #62197 for only $299.99, reduced from $469.00
The universal companion for hunting and nature observation
Complementing its BL binocular series the German optics specialist has this model with comfort bridge. This binocular is the perfect companion for hunters and nature observers. Besides the practical and innovative comfort bridge it boasts and extremely light weight of just 650g as well as an exceptionally large field of view that makes it possible to capture moving objects even faster and far more reliably. The comfort bridge ensures convenient handling and a firm grip, even under extreme conditions. This open design enables safe, singlehanded operation allowing more freedom to move when out hunting or observing nature. The binoculars of the BL series are of a particularly light-weight design, this also being indicated by the letter L in the product name. Additional highlights of the new BL series are its ergonomic features and the rubber armored body of polycabonate that is extremely robust and weather-resistant.
The MINOX BL 8x33 also features a specially developed sealing technology that makes it watertight to a depth of up to five meters. Thanks to a nitrogen filling on the inside there is no fogging of the optical surfaces, even under severe temperature fluctuations, and a clear view is guaranteed at all times.
A high-quality optical system with multicoated lens elements provides superb light-gathering power and images with an exceptionally neutral color rendition of the objects in view. Thanks to the roof prisms with phase-correction coating the user is presented an image with high detail rendition and pin-sharp contrast, even in bad light.
The individual requirements of people wearing eyeglasses are also fully accounted for. With the extended eye relief the entire field of view can be enjoyed without vignetting, also when wearing spectacles. Twist-type retractable rubber eyecups with individual click stops are another convenient feature.
This MINOX BL 8x33 includes a nylon strap, an ever-ready case and the MINOX lifetime no fault warranty.
