Now here’s something unusual – an ‘expensive’ pair of ‘cheap’ Chinese binoculars. The Hyperion EDs are at the top end of the range from Chinese brand Eyeskey, selling for around £250 here in the UK.
Charlie Jacoby is impressed from the moment he opens the box. “These are the proper spec for deer stalking, 10×42 and 8×42,” he says. “They come up to the eyes very easily, there’s a nice big focusing ring, rubberised grip – I really can’t fault them, especially when they come with a guarantee like all retail products sold in the UK.”
