I wanted to mention what I thought of the Vanguard Endeavor binoculars I recently received. I already own a pair of Steiner Binoculars, not top end, but very good glasses. I decided to do a comparison test between my proven Steiners and my new Endeavor 1045s(10.5X45). The Steiners are 9X40, for the record.
I used the Vanguards throughout the day, tuning them to my personal eyesight and getting used to them by peering out the back at the farm behind my house. Very clear, once attuned to my eyes. I was wishing I'd gotten them just a few days earlier so I could have wrung them out on a recent hog hunt, but it just didn't work out like that.
When the sun hit the horizon, I got my Steiners out to make a direct comparison between the two similar sets of binos. I was very impressed with the Vangurds, very. They at least matched the low light performance of the nice Steiners. I was surprised, but also pleasantly impressed with their performance. These are excellent quality glasses, both optically and build-wise. Quality finish throughout.
