Droptine binoculars: Burris has designed its newest line of optics to provide the ruggedness – and affordability – that hunters will appreciate. Available in two models (10×42 and 8×42), these binoculars are comfortable and lightweight enough for extended glassing, with an easy-grip exterior cladding that makes them easy to hold, even when wearing gloves. Features include Bak-4 glass and multi-coating for optimum resolution, light transmission and glare omission. Also, its eye cups are made from aluminum – rather than plastic – to stand up to drops and abuse. “I compared them with my binoculars and the Droptine preformed well in low light,” said Lone Star Outdoor News’ Executive Editor Craig Nyhus. “The new style of grips are more comfortable, especially when looking through the binoculars for a ling time.” The fogproof, waterproof and shockproof binoculars cost about $300.
