    looking fo high power glassing binos

    I'm looking for a pair of high powered binoculars that would be used mostly from my truck scouting and from my house window. I have a pair of Cabelas euro 12 by 50 binoculars and absolutely love them.I would like to go up to 15 by 56 and weight really is a not a problem. I was thinking about vortex kaibabs or Swarovski's. does anyone have hands-on experience with both of these or any other suggestions that might be better.I really value edge to edge clarity and lowlight capability. I would mostly be using a tripod as well.thanks and good luck hunting to all

    It would be wise to spend the extra money on the swaros. I have a set and I just bought the vortex for my uncle. They were in my possession for a week so I couldn't resist setting them up side by side. There is a difference between the two the price tag reflects the difference and IMO it is worth it. Make sure you look at them both before you buy, some guys say the swaros are too wide for them.

    If you are made of money, you can always buy these.

    I love my Swaros on a tripod, without they are pretty shaky.

    The Swaro 15X56's are pretty sweet... I couldn't imagine ever glassing without them now that I've used them...

    With that said, if you're looking for some truly next level glassing, get a set of Kowa Highlander 30X83's... I had to go and get them last season and I am telling you, there's no going back...

    Absolutely, in equivocally, the best there is that I have seen... Over the years I have searched high and low for the next best thing. These are the cats meow! Very pricey but Check em out... We were glassing deer at 10 miles last season given clear conditions before thermals kicked.

    thanks for the reply guys. I have a nest egg saved up but I am willing to wait a little longer if it is worth it. Also my wife says I'm no doctor haha. unfortunately I can't get hands-on all these binoculars so any of your knowledge and opinions is appreciated.
