Predator 10x42 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang For Buck I didn't want to spend thousands on a great pair of binocs so I bought the Predator 10x42 ($400) model. After weeks of tightening the noose on a 4 1/2 year old swamp buck, he finally made a mistake. While slipping around the edge of his bedroom in thick cedars, I saw a slight movement that I thought was a squirrel - my Steiner's allowed me to focus quickly on what was a tiny bit of his G-2 - at 10 yards no less. That information was priceless as I waited until he gave me a shot at about 17 steps. Much thanks to Jeff at Jay's Sporting Goods for helping me decide on the Steiner's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolute favorite binos ever i bought my steiner optics last year and first weekend of hunting they fell off my 4 wheeler and my friend ran them over and broke them in half i almost cried spent alot of money on them and i was just devistaded all weekend. i came home called in to the warranty department and just to see if there was anything they could do and i could not beleive that the guy said to just send them in and they would get them taken care of, and it would be about 4 to 6 weeks to get back. i mailed them in and beleive it or not i just received a brand new pair at no cost and they had them to me in 10 days from when i mailed them off i will never buy any othger brand again love these binos and there warranty, thank you guys and you have made my day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought my 10x42 stein eras about six years ago in South Africa (so the price was a little inflated) and have used them consistently since. They have been lugged around everywhere,experiencing bumps and knocks and getting dusty and dirty. They have never been anything but wonderful. Often, when being passed back from a friend using them(usually to see an interesting bird) they are accompanied by a comment that " these are great glasses" a feature that is not appreciated is that the eye cups not only keep out light but also act as a steady post against the face. I would only ever buy steiners again when these ever give up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Predator 10x42 I bought these a couple of months ago and haven't really had a chance to test them in the field. I'm a big hunter and the Predators are suppose to make it easier to pull the animals out of the surrounding terrain. I have looked through them and the optics are very crystal clear and stand up to any of my more expensive , which are all German optics by the way. They are compact and light weight which is a big plus, because hunting in Arizona is mainly spot and stock we don't sit in tree stands all that much. A lot of hiking and glassing. I can't wait until this fall when hunting season opens again and I can put these guys to the test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10x42 predator After much research I finally decided to buy Steiner 10x42 Predator field glasses, and I wasn't disappointed the clarity is incredible, compact and easy to carry in the field. If you want the most bang for your buck these are for you, in my comparison to other brands that cost at least twice as much(sometimes like three times as much) these glasses do more than just hold there own. Highly recommended, makes me wonder how good Steiner optics are when you buy a more expensive pair. The only complaint is the strap and the ClicLoc system doesn't allow you to use your old harness or your homemade strap, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands Down Best Optic on the market Purchased for Hunting and they have not let me down, clarity edge to edge is superb. When used in Montana on an Elk hunt my hunting partner from Helena and I where judging Bulls, he made a comment that the Bull bedded down was better than the other bull standing in the Timber, after letting him use my predators to see the difference he stopped bragging about his glasses and was awe struck by the clarity of this optic and how well the Elk in the timber was defined... These glasses out preformed every other optic in camp... I'm buying their 2 x 10 x 42 rifle scope today for my 280 Ackley...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After comparing this bino and a Zeiss in the store I felt like this one was the better value. I just got back from an antelope hunt and used them extensively glassing. They were awesome! The clarity of them was excellent in bright light as well as low light. I would recommend them to all of my hunting buddies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect All I can say is they are perfect. The clarity is phenomenal, the field of view surpasses anything else I've tried and they feel great in your hands. The focus adjustment is really sensitive, which I really like. The eye cups cut out any external light and let you concentrate on what you are focusing on. In general just a fantastic pair of binoculars.

Do these binoculars have ED or HD glass or phase corrected prisms? And if not how do they compare to binoculars that do?

Asked by: Cdixon

Hi, I recently bought the Predator 10x42 binoculars and I am wondering if I can get some regular eye cap replacements (without the flares on the side) I use glasses and find these interfere.

Asked by: Colin Charles
Flat eyecups are not available for this model. The wings are designed such that they can be folded flat for use with glasses.

I bought a pair on sale from Bass Pro Shops, Predator Pro, it doesn't come with the eye cups and seems smaller overall! Is this a different BPS only binocular?

Asked by: Bow hunter
The Predator Pro is an older model, with similar performance, but some minor cosmetic differences, including the lack of winged eyecups.
