Tasco Binoculars

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for some time now for a good pair of field (what I call small) binoculars but haven't been wanting to spend the money that they tend to cost. However, today while looking through some outdoor supplies I noticed a pair on sale for ten bucks. They are Tasco 10x25 so I scooped them up thinking for ten bucks you can't go wrong. Haven't taken them out in the field yet but after opening it up, they feel pretty solid, feel very comfortable in the hands and have a very nice clear view. These will make a nice addition to my BOB and vehicle. Anyone else ever used this brand? good or bad about it?

I've used a lot of Tasco stuff over the years and it's worked fine for me. I know that some guys talk binoculars like they do guns. If it didn't cost a couple hundred bucks, it ain't worth it. As long as they do what you want them to do, then they're just fine.

The thing about buying any piece of gear is to first decide for yourself if the product suits you and is up to the task long term under all conditions. My dad always used to say "it only costs a little more to go first class" and I have to say with 61 years under my belt this has worked out much more often than not. As an outdoor writer/hunter/angler/product review specialist (search HuntingNet.com) I naturally have my own preferences. I probably have carried and written about two dozen brands of binoculars. Even the "cheap" ones did OK, but for a bit more the difference was surely worth it. I have about 6 sets of binoculars I use regularly for long range observation and hunting. Those brands include Leupold, Alpen, Optics Planet OPMOD, Zeiss, and Pentax. Only one of these has ever failed, but I don't think dropping them off an elk mountain really counts. Shop hard, buy smart.

Alright let's get this conversation going again, what is a good price and name for medium to long range binoculars? I just realized that my old pair that i got from the old man, have gotten water in them or something, trashed. Time to get a pair! I'm sure I can get by with some cheaper small nocs like tw mentioned for short range..but I want some serious ones for long range.....DISCUSS!

I'm not a big binocular guy but for a medium St I wouldn't spend more than $50-80$. Unless your trying to read a list license plat from a mile away I don't see the need just cause they easily scratch or are damaged but like I said there others probably mode well informed
