Default who uses binoculars?

WHO uses binoc's and does this seem like a deal for a spocting scope, AND binoculars? i have never heard of this brand. but i found these on keystone country store. http://www.keystonecountrystore.com/...em=66&mitem=67

any sugestions on good reliable and cheaper binoculars would be greatly appreciated. i was looking at the spoting scope because i will be going up north this year to riffle hunt, and i need to get it sighted in soon. i have spent already close to 2000$ on this years archery hunting equipment that is why the price is such a factor! thanks again

my theory: stick with name brands unless you know exactly what you are getting. I only use spotting scopes for the rifle range. The newest gizmo is binoculars that have a built in digital camera.

yeah ive seen those too. but i want to know if anyone has heard of this brand. i did notice that they have some binoculars, that are about 1200$ so i dunno if they are a cheap company or a new company or they have been around and i have just NOT noticed or never heard of them!

thanks for the advice. im looking at bushnell combo that is about 119 for the spotting scope, and about 69$ for the binolculars.
but doesnt compare to the 148$ with back pack and all the extra stuff... just would like to know if anyone else has it?

I have a cheapy pair of Tasco 12x25 bino's in a camo color, that I picked up at Wally World. They are small, light, and if I need them, they are right there in the pack.

You can pick up a pair of bushnell 10-20x25 for around 60 bucks.They work real well and have a wide range.Wal-mart has those as well.

I just picked up a new pair of minolta classic II 10 x 50. These things are huge but with the new shoulder harness you can buy anywhere to hold agianst your chest they rock! I also have hunted the last 15 years with cheap Tasco ones and they worked just fine. The only issue I had was they were tough to see out of d/t the size.

Unless I'm scouting, I don't freak out if I forget my binoc's.
