    What's binoculars for my daughter?

    My 14 year old daughter is doing her core tomorrow. And i'm looking at Buying a pair of binoculars for her. Please don't recommend vortex I Will not buy a pair of those again, had too many issues with warranty. Any recommendations besides them between $500-$1000

    It's very tough for me to decide which ones to get. Because I keep comparing them to my alpha glass.

    I bought my son Zeiss Terra ED from Precision Optics when he completed his Core. They’ve served him well.

    I tried out a bunch of different models in your price range and settled on leupold bx4. I haven’t bought them yet and they keep going up in price

    A smaller glass may suit better for her size/age ?

    I have a Pentax 8x32 that always seem to get the ride now compared to the larger heavier primo glasses
    They get the nod on Birder sites too

    They are super good enough for most viewing though the Swaros still come out for those 'serious' hunts
    Glad to say I have hunted Northern BC

    Simon Fraser had pretty good judgement on what he found in BC
