HX 10x42 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid value for an excellent Bino Have been looking at options for almost a year...finally the Hunter 10x42 were offered for a great price and I jumped on it. I have Steiner glass on my rifle, performs flawlessly and used their binos daily on the bridge of a ship throughout my career. Reliable, rugged and clear. Finally have a pair for my outdoor use and confident they will perform. Highly recommended as a compact and reliable tool for use afield.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought the HX 10x42 based on quality and price. Great product and will be using it for the upcoming hunting season. The owner's manual is minimal at best and did not offer much.

are HX series the same as HD

Asked by: lucky 7
I'm not sure what you mean, we have no models designated "HD" The HX binoculars utilize High definition lenses and the Nano-protection coatings to provide a crisp, clear image to the user.

When i compare the HX 10x42 and HX 8x42 the specifications are the same. Is this correct? And what is hugh definition? Thanks.

Asked by: Roebear
They are identical in overall size, but the specs are slightly different for each (which can be attributed entirely to the difference in magnification power) Specific differences include, but are not limited to: Magnification, Field of View, weight, exit pupil, luminosity, and twilight factor.

Is the HX series the replacement for the older ranger extreme series. How do they compare performance wise. Thanks

Asked by: Dawry
The Ranger Xtreme is still a current model in Australia. The HX is a significantly higher grade if binocular.
