I'd be happy with having a packer to carry all the optics.

To my eye's Swaro's EL 8.5x42 have always seemed to not only be the brightest but also have the best clarity and able to focus them the finest.  I've minimally handled the new Swaro NL's so I don't really have a comparison but they're supposed to be even a little better then the EL's.

Kinda like getting your wisdom teeth pulled.  You know its going to hurt for a day and then everything just straightens out and you wonder why you didnt do it earlier.  They are just a pleasure to look through

This! Best analogy Iíve seen on one of these Swaro threads! I peer through 10x42 el range at the moment and I have had non range elís in the past and sold them for Leica HDR which are great glass too but I canít see myself ever straying from Swaro again.

El range if needing rangefinder capable glass. I prefer pures for sheer glassing ability, nothing comes close for me.

Have the NL Pures and they really are remarkable to look through.

If you are a member on Rokslide email Rob at S&S Archery and he will set you up with a really good deal shipped directly to your door. I have not found better pricing.

NL 8x32 and NL 12x42 good pair of Glasses that work for most situations. I honestly use the 8x32's more than the 12's, but would be lost without the higher power, probably more of a mental thing... but one of my main things is glassing sheep far away, but once found bigger glass comes out 20x+

We have the 10x40 EL and 10x25B. I got the little ones to carry in the field as I knew I would not carry the bigger ones. That said, the 10/40 ELís are great, and easier to hold steady, but the little ones get far more use.
We had Leupold Gold Ring before that. One look through a buddyís Swaroís and two days later the ELís were on the way.
Cuterebra are NOT cute!
