Bushnell's Hunting Binoculars: The Prime Collection
Bushnell has spent 70 years figuring out how to provide the best range of optics and binoculars at various prices and the best features. The Prime collection includes a series of affordable binoculars that don't compromise on quality. They focus on including necessary features for the avid experienced or novice hunter. Whether you're using them for hunting, bird watching or observation, these top-rated binoculars are an excellent deal.
Bushnell's Prime collection of hunting binoculars do vary in price point from $90 to $120. They offer magnification strengths in 8X, 10X, and 12X. The objective lens sizes from 25mm to 50mm. They are also waterproof for up to thirty minutes in three feet of water, which is great for rainy days and accidents over shallow waters.
Each of these also includes the EXO Barrier Protection feature, which is exclusive to Bushnell's line. This protective lens coating keeps dust and debris from sticking, repels water and oil, and also resists scratching. Every pair also comes with a lens cap that clips to the lens for added protection when your binoculars aren't in use. Their compact size fits easily into any range bag and comes with a small, convenient protective carrying case.
Ultimately, the lenses are comparable between each set of Prime binoculars, not regarding depth or field of vision, but for clarity, sharpness and superior optics.
There are a few areas to focus on when it comes to picking your Prime Binoculars, but the range will be the most important. The big question is: are you looking for more width or depth regarding your visibility while hunting? If you are looking for a wider range of visibility, focus on a higher second number. For example, the Prime 10x42 binoculars have the widest range with the lens, while the Prime 10x25 binoculars have less range across your area of visibility.
If you are expecting to be further away from your targets, focus on the first number. The Prime 8x42 compact binoculars won't allow you to see as far away as the Prime 10x42 binoculars, although both have the same 42mm lens for width. A wider view is preferred for those hunting broad terrain. With the right pair of quality, high-range hunting binoculars, you'll find yourself hitting more targets than ever before.
