I know your asking about els but If you can get out and spend a couple days with the pures I would do it...yes they cost 1k more...yes at 1st glimpse in the store they are marginally better

But in the field...they are 10 pures outperformed my b518s at distance..and often when going from the 10s to the 25x stx it's amazing how little difference there is some how...idk how to even explain it...obviously that sounds crazy but it's just my thoughts...if the pures or els get you back to work one or two days sooner they pay for themselves in short order...depending on how much you hunt that could add up fast

Just some thoughts

For me the slc’s have always been more comfortable on my chest, in my hands and on my eyes but that’s just me. I am however itching to try the pures. IMO if you are in the market for high end glass don’t worry about a negligible price difference between brands/models you are already pot committed, if $500-1000 extra is gunna hurt you probably shouldn’t be spending that kind of money on binos in the first place :chuckle:

I decided to upgrade from my SLC to the el. After some testing. I kept my SLC and sold the el. Not impressed
