The rebate make them worthwhile,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Simmons ProSport Series Binoculars 899502 (Sports)
The strength is as advertised and they claim to be waterproof; but, you won't catch us testing that feature willingly...but we do live on a small lake in a high humidity environment, we'll see if rust spots develop or the lenses fog up, as they have on our other much older binoculars. Will update review if a problem.
For now, the only issue was when we were calibrating, the rt eye piece that's suppose to turn was SO tight we almost sent them back (there's a warning in the pamphlet to not force it, or it can break). Being the one that has to go thru the hassle of returning, 2 days after receiving and determining it's a return, I twisted it slowly but as hard as I could and viola, it turned. If you have the same problem, just handle gingerly. Once they were aligned, they were fine. Many foggy mornings here and so far, so good. The one star short of perfect is the stupid adjustment that comes w/a warning; but, no other way to align the lense.
I'll also update if that rebate doesn't come through. We would NOT have purchased without it.
