After years of carrying an RF and some binos, I decided to simplify it by buying a combo. I bought a Swarovski . The RF portion is really great as is the monocular. I consistantly range out to 1500 yds with no problems. The mono is 8x and crystal clear. I paid less that 1,000 for it...not bad when you consider the price of binos & rf individually. I am very happy with my selection.
