On long flights the Skymall catalog is really interesting; especially after a few bloodies. I clip out a lot of items and randomly leave them around for my wife before x-mas and birthday. She just throws them away.
I can't help thinking that these binoculars would be really cool. The down side is size, weight and tunnel vision. With a tripod they could work as a budget spotting scope at the range.
Most sportsmen prefer compact wide fov. I have several of those.
Once you go to the $200 range, there are a lot more options. If i raise my budget to $200 are there better "super powerful" optics if size doesn't matter?
I only need to really see 5.56 holes at 200yds.
