I ordered the Barska 20-140x80 Zoom Gladiator Braced-in Tripod Mounting Post Binoculars for my husband for Christmas and he loved it, I mean really loved it. I was amazed at the distance and clarity that you could see from these binoculars. Great product!
The Barska WP Huntmaster Phase Coated 8x42 Binoculars are a bit heavier than I expected but still compact enough to go along on my hunting trips. They are great during low light and the 8x is enough for the mountains where I hunt. As far as reliability goes that is something only time will tell.
I looked at and almost bought a spotting scope by XXXX company for just over 200. A guy at the range had one and it was nice dont get me wrong. Just down from us was a little old man with THIS Barska telescope. The little telescope optics and aperature blew the more expensive spotting scope away! Wasn't even close... I don't use it as as telescope, probably never will but it works great for a 100-200 yard shooting range scope for 1/4 of the cost. Me and my son love it.
I have several Barska products and find all of them to be of excellent quality. They are not necessarily "inexpensive", but they are affordable and provide excellent value for the money. There are certainly many optics available, at much higher prices, but is it always necessary to purchase something because of its higher price? Doesn't necessarily make it any better, just more costly.
