As I am sure you are aware by now, a little while ago we started a "Deal of the Day" promo. This, "Deal of the Day" is posted everyday I am here at work, assuming I find the time each day to do this, lol. We buy lots of demos, close-outs and assorted new product deals and sometimes we wind up with enough to offer crazy cheap deal on something awesome. Todays deal is on a great Minox Binocular..... The Minox BL 8x44 BR Comfort Bridge Binocular #62195 reduced from $489.00 to only $299.99 Robust lightweights with Comfort Bridge The goals of MINOX development engineers are to identify trends and respond to these with innovative products. With the new BL 8x44 and the BL 10x44 the optical specialists from Wetzlar accomplish this task. Featuring an Open Bridge these BL binoculars are extremely comfortable to handle and offer the user an excellent grip, even when conditions get tough. The Open Bridge also enables a safe and reliable operation, even single-handed, allowing more freedom to move when out observerving nature or hunting. Beyond this, the new BL line offers a field of view that has been increased by 16%. Moving objects can now be captured even faster and more reliably. The letter L stands for “Light”, and this is ensured through the sturdy rubber-armored body of polycarbonate and the ergonomic design. Thanks to a sophisticated sealing technology the new BL binoculars are also watertight down to five meters. Nitrogen filling prevents fogging of the optical surfaces, even with severe temperature fluctuations. The powerful light-gathering optical systems feature multicoated lens elements that guarantee the best optical performance and neutral color rendition of the object in view. Thanks to the roof prisms with phase-correction coating the user is offered an image with exceptionally high detail rendition and sharp high contrast, also in low light. MINOX also accounts for the individual requirements of people wearing eyeglasses. With the extended eye relief the entire field of view can be enjoyed without vignetting, also when wearing eyeglasses. Rotating rubber eyecups with individual adjustment are further convenient features. This new MINOX BL binocular includes a neoprene strap as well as an ever-ready case and a lifetime no fault warranty.
