The Vortex Talon 10X42 offer a good look and feel of quality.
Throughout the duration of my field test, I could not help but notice how comfortable the Vortex Talon 10X42’s are. I spent several hours glassing without much of a break except to check some bucks out with the spotting scope, of which I spotted with the binoculars. The talons fit well in my average sized hands and feel good on my eyes.
All of the moveable parts on the Vortex Talon HD Binoculars move very smoothly. The focus moves easily and is quick to adjust. The hinges pivot nicely and are smooth as well.
The exterior of the Talon Binocular are not only attractive, but also provide for a firm grip and extra padding for the rigorous day to day activities of hunting or other wildlife viewing.
The Vortex Talon HD Binoculars have several specs that are very noteworthy. Below is a list of the top specs that they offer in the order that I see as the most prominent:
- Price: $450 You will have a hard time finding binoculars of this quality for any where close to this price.
- Field of View: 348 feet at 1000 yards. This is the most you will find not only in its price range, but across the whole board of 10 power binoculars.
- HD Glass: This is a first in binoculars of this price to offer HD glass (high density, low dispersion). I do not believe this is noteworthy if the optics aren’t incredibly clear, but that is not the case here. The HD glass in the Vortex Talon is very worthy of the name.
- ArmorTek™ Lens Coating: Repels oils on outer glass surfaces making for easier and less cleaning, causing the lenses to last longer without scratches.
There are more noteworthy specifications that that I will not bore you with right now as all the specs can be seen at the links at the end of this article
Vortex VIP Warranty:
Vortex Optics offers a no fault lifetime warranty. If you have any problems with these binoculars, send them back and Vortex will repair or replace them at no charge, with no questions asked. I have heard many good things about the customer service and timely manner in which they get their products back to their owners. My own personal experiences with the warranty process has been very positive. They replaced an eye cusp for me that had broke. Even though Vortex offers their products at a discount, they will stand behind them as good as any of the high dollar optics brands.
If you haven’t noticed yet, I am very impressed with the Vortex Talon HD Binoculars and am glad to give them a excellent review.
