Quality and Affordability: Powerview 2 Binoculars
If you are in the market for an effective and efficient pair of hunting binoculars without all the fancy specs, the Powerview 2 line is designed to meet your most basic needs. There are your straight-to-the-point, get the job done type of target or hunting binoculars.
The Powerview 2 binoculars are constructed from an aluminum alloy, which is less expensive but keeps them durable, lightweight, and sleek. The brushed-metal look is complemented with rubber grips for single-hand holding control and an overall modern yet basic design. If you are looking for a standard looking set of binoculars, these are great.
There is still no sacrifice on range and depth with your visibility. The magnification ranges (how much you are zoomed in on a target) include 10-20 times the magnification, depending on which Powerview 2 you want. Similarly, lens size varies from 25mm to 50 mm to meet individual hunting styles and observation needs. The lenses and prism are standard and work to get the job done.
The magnification of your lens depends on what type of activity you plan to do. While it might seem like you want the highest magnification possible for the best visibility, it's essential to know what you're trading it for. As the magnification increases, things like brightness, the field of view,and visual sensitivity decrease.
If you mostly hunt short-range, go for the 10x. If you hunt long-range, go for the 20x. If you hunt mid-range distances, then we'd recommend going with an in-between like 16x. If you need to keep a broad field of view as you scan the terrain for smaller or more camouflaged prey, you need to either opt for a higher lens, like the 50mm, or keep your magnification at 10x to allow for broader visibility. The Powerview 2 20x50 binoculars offer the highest setting for both in the Powerview 2 collection.
The visual sensitivity factor is another important detail when looking at high-power binoculars. If you have a shaky hand, the bigger magnification is going to be a challenge to overcome. Magnifications of 20x mean the image are more likely to be shaky or disturbed because they're more sensitive to movement with the higher magnifications.
Ultimately, the Powerview 2 line offers some of the best budget binoculars for hunting. They provide a solid grip, a durable body and frame, simple and basic functionality, and still have a range of magnifications and lenses. With prices under $100, they are an affordable purchase to improve your hunting experience.
