roy HUNtINGtoN GUNNYSACK trUGLo BINocs always had a compact pair of binocs with me when I was on duty as a patrol cop, and it seemed they were constantly being loaned out to beat-partners without sense enough to pop for their own. Ditto in hunting camps, I always seem to he the guy with the good glass so everyone wants to borrow it. It’s like they suddenly realized $19.95 wasn’t quite enough to pay for good binoculars. Cheap means, well … they’re cheap. Which means they will tire your eyes, likely not last through a shift or one day in the hunting field, and will otherwise cause you heartburn whenever you reach for ’em. Plus, I’ll laugh at you. TruGlo, long known for high visibility sights, red-dot sight systems and such, have recently introduced their TruBrite Open-Bridge binocular series. Priced at around the $280 point, they aren’t insanely expensive like $4,000 or something, or of the “$9.95 Bargain Deal!” category at the big box store (sure to fail, almost immediately, and give you a headache as they do it). The Tru-Brites have all sorts of cool features like “phase coated prisms” and an ergonomic adjustment wheel for focus and diopter settings and even have high transmission silver coatings on prisms to go with the fact they’re “environmental/operational/waterproof/ fog-proof” too. I’m not entirely sure what some of that I means, but when I looked through ’em (my test set was the 10x42 model) I could actually see clearly and they brought far away things up-close so I could make them out easily. The last time I looked, that’s precisely what binoculars are supposed to do. During a squirrel attack here a the Huntington Compound, not long ago, I used the Tru-Brite glass to spot while Suzi kept their heads down with a .22 Magnum. No eye strain and no headaches — at least for us. Might have been a few headaches on the enemy’s side. Get your own, ’cause I’m tired of loaning mine out!
