great binocs - but fatal flow

shorebirder, opticsplanet.com

  • Summary: I love Swift binoculars and my last pair lasted >15 years. I am an ornithologist and I use my binocs every day. I used this pair to study shorebirds and I was initially very impressed but within 2 weeks the pin that attaches the neck strap fell out, dumping the binocs into the sand. I tried to get it fixed locally and they said the hole was stripped. When I contacted the company they just referred me to a place where I could get it fixed.
  • Pros: relatively light, clear, easy focus
  • Cons: pin for neckstrap fell out - poorly manufactured

  • Summary: I bought 2 pairs of the Swift Ultra Lites 10x42. These represent my 3rd and 4th pair of Swift binoculars I own.The other being the 10x50 Kestrels which I love but needed something that's waterproof. These pair though have had nothing but problems since day 1.Optical they are very good but build quality is terrible. Problems Encountered: First day a clip that is needed to attach the strap arrived broken and had to wait for new ones.
