so are they infrared or not?


#7

Ooooooh, My hot neighbor is going to hate me with these.


#8

Purchased last time offered. I thought they were sold for 4.99 . Anyway will use them for hunting this monday. Very nice quality for the price.


#9

it’d be sweet to view infrared.
bummer.
still, they look pretty stout.


#10

Nope only Porro Prism


#11

Great price, these will sell out. In for 3…


#12

Really, folks, don’t expect too much from a pair of ten dollar binoculars. Would you use a pair of ten dollar prescription glasses? In optics, you get what you pay for. Still, good for kids, and brief uses, like the aforementioned girl next door. I am guessing it would be a really quick use…Ha ha ha. Plus, big bonus, they are “infra-vue”. Wow. Better than “intra-dimensional-vue”.


#13

I don’t think that holds true on Woot! You usually get a lot more than you pay for…
In for Three, seeing that they are $25 on OverStock.com, great small gift :slight_smile:
Great Sellout

Actually, they DO pass the infrared. It’s just your EYES that don’t view it.


#15

hunting for … ?

last time they were 10x21 for 4.99… these are supposedly slightly larger in glass diameter.


#16

Well said. I stand corrected. They are worth a bit more than ten dollars.


#17

I believe the other offering was for 10 x 21 binoculars, same manufacturer, same “misleading” name (infra-vue). I bought three as stocking stuffers back then, or I’d be in for three tonight. Not terrible quality, not great either - good for the 5 bucks each I gave - these are slightly better (I’m sure worth the 10 bucks). That said, if you are wanting (or needing) a good binocular, it’ll cost you - good optics cost good money, and there’s no way around it. But, as has been mentioned before here, 25 or 30 bucks will go a long way on eBay for a superior binocular (just a little older, but none the worse for wear). Check the archives for the older discussion thread on the last binocular offering.


#18

useless, what could i do with these that wouldn’t get me arrested? -_-


#19

You’re kidding yourself if you think you will have them by “this monday”.


#20

Just prepare yourselves for the inevitable “optic snobbery” that will profess how these are so inferior and will hurt your eyes and aren’t as good as the $1200 set of [insert brand name here] they purchased blah blah blah.

They are $10 binoculars…nobody is expecting Leupold or Trigicon quality here.
