According to BestBinocularsReviews :

Strong Points: For me their general build quality and the close attention that Snypex Optics pay to the small details is something that really stands out for me and whilst I expect to see it on the most expensive 'alpha' type bins, it is not something that you are guaranteed in this price range.

This begins with a top spec magnesium chassis that has a high quality rubber armour and runs right through to the lenses that contain water repellent coatings. Combine this with their other optical coatings it makes sure that you are presented with a bright and good resolution view.

19mm of eye-relief is superb, which when paired with their quality twist-up eyecups makes them a great choice for eyeglass wearers.

Whilst it may not be the first feature that most people look for in a binocular, the minimum focus distance is very good and means that these can be used for a much wider range of uses making them a far more versatile instrument.

Also well worth highlighting is the excellent quality accessories (carry case, neck strap and lens covers) that come supplied with the Profinder series, which once again surpass most at this price and easily match that which you get on much higher levels. The semirigid carry case in particular really stands out and indeed is the same as that which you get on Snypex's top of the range Knight ED and D-ED Series binoculars.
