Zen ray binoculars?

Anybody have any experience with them?  I've read some great reviews on them but I'm unsure whether they would be much of an upgrade from what I own.  I currently have the Nikon monarch 10x42 and have been happy with them but I'm thinking that an upgrade would be nice.  I'd love to drop the coin on swaro's but I just can't justify that much money for glass.

Start saving your money and then pick up the Swarovski's once you use them you will never go back to any others.  And I do mean use them by looking through them for a couple of hours at a time.

Yeah I hear what you are

Yeah I hear what you are saying fellas.  I don't know if I can afford anything before my trip to CO in August.  I guess I will see how my old monarch's work for me and if they give me a headache I'll try to remember that when I buy my next pair.  In the midwest we have little use for standing behind glass for hours at a time, so I've never experienced it.  My alpine tundra mulie hunt will give me a taste of why all you western guys don't seem to mind dropping the ching on swaro's.  I appreciate you're advice.
