Steiner Merlin 10x42

$527.00 to $640.00



Named for a small bird of prey that relies on speed and stealth to take its quarry, the Merlin binocular features similar traits. The Merlin's Fast-Focus center-focus system enables users to view the entire focus range with less than one full turn of the focus wheel. Therefore, users can zero in on their subjects quickly and easily, with very little movement, allowing them to observe wildlife with little risk of detection. Yet the precise focus wheel allows for razor sharp adjustments and holds views in focus for as long as the user desires. Water-resistant and encased in a dark, non-reflective, rubber-armored body, the Merlin can be used outdoors under any conditions. The earth-toned armoring actually camouflages the binocular to a bird's eye. Weighing under 24 ounces, the binocular is easy to carry on its own padded neck strap, or in a pack or jacket pocket.Minimize
