Snypex Binocular Review
10x42 APO Binos (Prototype)
MSRP $ 679
This Company is out of New York.
Sam, the Owner Was Very helpful with getting the Binos out for us to test.As With all tests and Reviews We had some Product That was Slow to get to us.We were hoping for a couple of the other Brands that are on the way to make it by the time I wrote this.
I test Some of the Best optics In the world and Usually have The Top Brands On hand.
I Think of the Swarovski El 10x42 Swarovision as My Reference Piece.They are the Ones Everyone Is Chasing.
Sam ,Has Informed me that these new Binos Are APO Glass and It shows in the testing of them. They are Definitely An Upgrade over Previous Binos form This Same Company.Not that the Previous ones were not a good product.They have Stepped up their Game with these.They are very Pleasing to the eye and had Very Very good Low Light Performance.We Do A Ton Of hunting and Took Them with us On a Couple of our Spring Bear Hunts.As I usually Do I Passed them Around for All Of Our Hunting buddies to look Through.I got A lot of " Never heard of Them".I assured them they were a Quality Product.Everyone that looked through them was Impressed.We Had Quite a Few other Brands with Us and the Snypex Stacked Up Well against Brands Like Steiner,Leupold,Opticron,Minox,Styrka,Swarovski,Yes you read That right Swarovski.
Now The Snypex is Not Quite on par With the Swarovkis yet .They are getting very Close.They offer A very good Ability to Resolve Small Details and The APO Glass Has Helped with Chromatic Aberration .They have Good Resolution and Contrast.While I am Not A Birder,These would appeal to them as well. They tend to be much more critical of optics than the average hunter.But Hunters are much Harder on Equipment.
For our test We Did our Hot Tub Test which is set at a Comfy 102 Degrees.We Soak them for Between 15-20 Minutes at a Little less than 3 feet deep.After the hot tub Comes the Freezer test.I put them in for about 2 hours and then run them through all of the tests again. We Cycle them though focusing ,Diopter adjustments ,Rotating Eye Cups in and out and these performed flawlessly.They are very at home in Hostile environments and would make a hunter Quite a good Friend in the Field.
We Are Very Critical of How Our Optics Perform in the field and Would not Hesitate to take these on Any Hunts we do.
We Test in the Field,They Get Dirty,Wet,Sometimes Dropped,And Much Like A Timex Watch " They Took a Licking,And Kept on Ticking"
