Tripod adaptable By
The specs are wrong about the tripod adatability. This binocular is definitely tripod adaptable. I had it for a long time and used it on the tripod, with 1/4" adapter.
Other than that, highly recommended, considering the price. DO sent me the new binocular after I reported something protruding under the rubber armour (Nitrogen filling screw?). No questions asked.

Great for the price By
First and without going into much details let me praise Optics trade behaviour on customer support, the way that they solve an issue just as no parallel in any other store that I use up until now. I was astonished. Congratulations you gain another customer.
In relation to this Delta, I wanted to buy some for some time, I wanted to start low cost to move up on the quality chain.

These "inexpensive" binoculars are amazing, I stopped using binoculars in the ’90s and the evolution on this price is really incredible.
For people that want to use them occasionally or what to start without paying too much, this is it.
I don’t know how the other brands behave, and I’m sure that they are really pretty good too, but for me this are really good so I could not be more happy

Well, now I want to go up in the chain, but the problem is that I would pay 10x/20x more and I will not have that 10x/20x performance increase.

Optic trade, I need your help here!

All the best
