Customer Review

on December 14, 2009
Living in the upper Mid West, the landscape's heavily forested and glaciated.
It's time to see what I was missing.

Nikon lens/prisms are World renowned,...and for the dollar, arguably the best.
I wanted Roof Prism binoculars, so that made the decision easier.

Magnification is a preference factor, I chose 10X magnification after trying a family members 8X
(more on this later)

+ Trailblazers became the logical choice because of the larger 50mm objective lens +

With a larger 50mm objective lens, you attain many sought after qualities.
1: they gather more light entering the binoculars resulting in better imaging {any low light, dusk/dawn}
2: the field of view {angle of view} increases for smoother viewing/scanning
3: they generate a larger exit pupil for easier focusing and viewing for your eye

After enjoying the Nikon Trailblazer 10X50 for about a week now, I must say the decision was perfect.
Quite frankly, I'm amazed with the Trailblazers superb viewing ~ clarity ~ solid/rugged ATB construction.
When you hold these in hand, it really feels like your holding quality.
You get a good feeling even before using them,...call it the X factor.
(30 oz. is also acceptable weight for this quality)

I don't wear glasses, so I needed to turn'up the eyecups 1 click to eliminate any 'vignetting',..no problem.
The 10X magnification is a thrill; with ice forming around them, I spotted 3 Goldeneyes' diving underwater
nearly a half mile away...incredible!
This magnification hasn't given me issues on holding steady view.

One last thing,
I did some personal tests to see if I lost any color or contrast with the Trailblazers,
..the answer is no.
All I got was an accurate, super clear image and a smile!

~ The Nikon Trailblazer 10X50 are clear winners & easily 5 Stars for their stellar value ~
