Joel had those same ones a few years back. Great glass in my opinion as well Guy. Hard to beat good bino's.

Well It has taken 5 plus years but I finally "pulled the trigger" on a new pair of Binos for myself. First time since Dad bought me a pair in Jr High 35 years ago. Between times Ive lived without or used garage sale bushnells or worse. So.... a few gift cards through a health rewards program at work, a $20 club members thing from Cabelas and a $50 dollar sale and I came home with a pair of Nikon Monarch 5 - 10x42's. Asking price is $379 I think. Really impressed, for the money and my eyes they were as good as Leupold Acadia or higher end model. Havent had a chance to take them out much, but a year ago (2?) a salesman at cabelas walked me outside with them and several others. Nikons were the winner for what I could reasonably afford. They came home with me for $200. Telling you all this so you understand that I LOOKED at these for a long time....CL

QUESTION- These binos will spend time with me in a vehicle a lot. I am scared of getting them too hot and ruining them. Thoughts or suggestions on how/ where to store them. Maybe thats not the issue it once was...?

Nothing wrong with Nikons. They make good stuff. Glad you got them.

I am sure glad I picked up a pair of Cabelas new HD Intensity 10x42s just for spares! I sold a pair of Nikon 10x42 Monarchs; and picked up the new Intensitys, then decided to send both the Minox and Swarvoskis in. Good thing I had
The Intensitys or I would have been binocular less all winter! I realize Blouser has just moved Minox from NH to Texas and that it is now a small part of a big company. But
3/4 months to get a pair of binos fixed seams a bit much to me ???? On the other hand with the Cabelas brand with lifetime warrantee they have always been excellent about
Simply "replacing" things that broke even years later....
Something to think about when buying binos ??


Intensity HD's were impressive, but the Nikons won out for me. CL
