    hmmm...any idea on quality (razor?) and price?

    Whats the deal with the kaibab? I have seen a couple for sale locally and have been slightly interested. Is that bino supposed to be of the razor quality or less? With the used asking prices I would assume it would be in the upper realm.

    How many binos do you own?

    The 20x56 will be kaibabs. Waiting to see them before judging the quality. Available spring 2014.

    Hard to say where the kaibab stands in the line up. I know they were one of the first competitors on the market trying to compete with the alpha guys

    Hardstalk,

    I'm looking at the Viper hd. If you are talking about the Kaibab's, I'm just going to be using the 15x mostly for truck glass. The Kaibab's are more than I want to spend and I am too nervous to leave my European glass in the truck cab.
