Leupolds have never been considered for serious glassing.

Just saying Leupolds aren't in the conversation of what your thread is about... higher magnification quality glass. I can support that your Meopta have a place in our glassing fraternity and is discussed...even Vortex has a couple models we discuss, but never a Leupold.

I’d like a pair of their 15x’s I think. Maybe this year I’ll add a set to the pack. I have the 10x42, 8x32 and the 20-70 Spotter. No complaints on any of them other than they are a touch heavier than Swaro but not enough to cough up the other 1000-1500 bucks.

I think you’d like them. The 15’s are pretty dam close to the Swarovski.

The Cabelas Euro HD are Meopta Meostar, guy on coueswhitetail had a 15x56 for sale and it sold this morning for 850.00. If you have patience keep a look out for a good deal on used binos.

Thanks SLM, I like what I have so far and haven’t ever felt like I was missing out with the Meopta Meostars.

Dang, yeah that is a deal for sure.

I’ll have to get my list to Santa.

Just looked at CL and they’re out of stock there…. So much for an impulse buy grin

I actually prefer the Cabelas version over the Meopta version.I like the armor better, and muchly like the knurled focus ring over the rubber-covered one on the Meopta.

Another comment concerning Leupold, The Gold Ring models give up very little to the Meostars and out-punch the newer BX-4's and BX-5's.....

Let us know. Never looked through the liecas or the Swarovski pures. Wondering if double the price + will give ya double the viewing pleasure
