Know it''s been a while since this thread was started, but thought I''d give an update. Went to West Marine to check out their binocs''. Gave the ones they had a look through, then noticed that they had one pair of Tasco Mariners. As I own one of Tasco''s hunting scopes and been well pleased with it, gave these a look through also. I was satisfied with ''em. Had the internal compass. Checked out the price- 160 bucks, marked down from 199 bucks. Didn''t sound to bad, asked the girl to take my money. She said the binocs'' had a further mark-down. 148 bucks. I wrote the check before they could change their mind. One added feature with the internal compass, if I spot a bird ( yep, I watch ''em occasionally)I can tell my wife the compass heading, and she can pick it out faster.Love ''em. Thanks again for all the input you folks gave me.

It''s nice when folks give an update of what they wound up doing after all the input they got. Good luck with your choice.

A gew years ago I bought several pairs of SIMMONS 10x50''s for christmas presents. They cost $50.00 each and are the best. I looked in the SUnday newspaper (the Cleveland Plain Dealer) and found some place that had them. I kept a pair for myself and took off anything that screwed on and resealed it with teflon tape, to waterproof the joint. SO far they have been emersed in water for three days, been wet for a week while sailing, and have not shown any signs of wear. I also have a pair of 7x50''s that I never use anymore.

How do you hold 10X binoclars steady on a pitching boat?
