Gift Ideas For The Gun Guy/Gal Who Already Has It All - #2 Adasion 12x42 Binoculars

In our previous blog post we discussed the need to have a good flashlight.  One example of it was the Fenix PD35 TAC.

Another item that is staple in my shooting bag is a good pair of binoculars.

While I am certainly not an optics snob who needs a $3,000 pair of binoculars with a built in range finder,  I do need something good enough to use at the range to either locate targets, spot hits for other shooters or to record shooting footage for my YouTube videos.

One pair I recently picked up was the Adasion 12x42 Binoculars on Amazon.

What attracted me to the pair specifically was that they were fairly light weight at 1.25 lbs and used a BAK4 prism and came with a smart phone adapter.

The BAK4 prism is a Chinese variety and slightly trails the German standard, it is far superior to the lower end BAK7 prisms, having a better refractive rate.

The smart phone adapter was well worth the money as I could mount my phone and have it record the target cam footage.  You can see it in use in my latest Ruger video on the 300 PRC. 

The Adasion 12x42 Binoculars are priced around $80 and is available in the United States from Amazon.com and I will have a detailed video on them in the near future.

I did it the first time around. They are decent bino's.

 

All we need now is the same deal on a decent spotting scope.

I got mine today.  Not bad except for the big defect on the lens. I guess quality control missed this one.  Not sure what to do at this point.  Please advise.

what's the defect?   why not just send them back to amazon for replacement?  I got mine today and they are pretty decent..especially if final cost will be FREE.

I dont know what the correct term is but it looks like an inclusion in a diamond...kinda like a small starburst.  Definately IN the glass.  I will send them back for sure.

so I got to play with my pair for a bit and compare it with my other binos.   Glass is OK.  nothing spectacular, but pretty decent for the price.    one noticeable issue is that image does not stay clear all the way to the edge, as in my Nikons.  other than that, they are an OK pair.

I would contact the seller and let them send you a new pair.  If you find them quick to act and nice to deal with, it would be great to include your great customer service experience in your review of the replacement binos when you get them!

They are on the way back now.  I am sure the new pair will be fine.  Other than that they are very nice and functional for the price for sure.

Submitted.  Thanks

Received, and feedback left.

"These are a great buy for the money.  As good as or better than some of the more expensive bino's.  The camera mount is a nice addition.  

Is there anything more I need to do for the refund?

Thanks

Same here ordered mine and received them yesterday. No refund yet and no email about a refund. Is there something else to do besides submitting the order number?
