Leica Trinovid 10x42 Binocular, $1400 Value
WINNER: George J Bergalis, Stuart, FL
The return of a classic glass with a reputation stretching back over 50 years for quality and performance - the Leica Trinovid 10x42 Binoculars. But these new glasses are much more than a product upgrade. We have consistently refined their construction and invested in new materials. The result is two new models - the best Trinovid binoculars of all time.
Their trademark: compact and ergonomic construction, internal focusing with intuitive handling and superior optical performance. At the same time, these new glasses are almost indestructible and are uncompromisingly powerful. You will never want to be without your Trinovid 42 binoculars again, especially on long and demanding birding trips.
More than a mere reproduction, these new binoculars are the result of Leica's dedication to improving technology and investing in better materials. The outcome: two new Trinovid models that are better than ever.
Celebrate the reputation of the brand that serious birders flock to, and take a chance on winning this top prize from Hawk Mountain's premier optics sponsor: Leica Sport Optics. Learn more at http://us.leica-camera.com/sport_optics/. Value $1400.
