"Review of SNYPEX Knight ED 10X50 by Commander Keith Caddy"
"The Snypex KNIGHT ED 10X50 binoculars are a quality product I would recommend to a police department or a hunter. They perform!" Commander Keith Caddy, police officer with the Colorado Police Department, as well as an avid hunter
I checked the clarity of the Snypex Knight ED binoculars by comparing them to my more expensive set of German binoculars and found I could read license plates at further distances with the Snypex binoculars than German pair. I tested the Snypex 10X50's in a low light environment with ambient light from the nearest town in a semi-rural area and was pleased with the way they performed. I could see animals, mostly deer, moving from wooded areas to their nightly feeding grounds, and in some cases, I could even discern bucks from non-antlered deer. I also found the binoculars work very well near light to dark transition areas in unlighted buildings. I do not know if their low light capabilities are from the superior lens quality or their light gathering capabilities. Next, I took the Snypex 10X50's outside, packed them with snow and mud, then washed them off with a hose. They functioned flawlessly. I was intrigued with the manufacturer's claim that these binoculars could focus up to 1.5 meters, and they do just as the manufacture claimed; I've never owned a pair of binoculars that would focus to 1.5 meters, impressive. The Snypex Knight ED 10X50 binoculars are a quality product at a reasonable price. They outperformed the equivalent American and German binoculars I use, and are priced much lower.
