Lightweight and powerful hunting classics - Made in Germany

Two truly bright giants in the successful MINOX BL binocular line have been revised. Perfect companions for the observation of game and nature in moonlight or at dawn, these lightweights offer uncompromising optical quality at very attractive price-performance ratio.

In spite of their extreme twilight performance the MINOX BL 8x56 and BL 15x56 weigh just over 1,000 grams. The outstanding optical design and mechanical precision of these powerful BL classics have been further enhanced to set new standards in this segment. An innovative M* multi-coating optimizes the light transmission and colour rendition of the binoculars. Up to 21 layers applied to the glass surfaces prevent the loss of light through reflections. A new coating of just a few nanometres in thickness is applied to all glass/air surfaces using the high-vacuum vapour deposition method and guarantees true colours of the highest level as well as maximum light transmission for an enhanced pin-sharp definition – particularly in poor light.

Roof prisms with phase correction coating provide an image with exceptional detail rendition and high contrast.

The external design of the BL 8x56 and BL 15x56 has been upgraded and is now conform with the BL comfort bridge binoculars. The new metal focusing wheel with rubber ribs is easy to use and quick to adjust. It also features a finger-felt marking for the infinity setting. By feeling the actual setting, the user can quickly focus on the game in view, even in twilight conditions. With resting forearms, even the BL model with 15x magnification can be moved quickly and steadily. As an alternative, the binoculars can be used with a tripod that is attached to the tripod thread using a quick-action adapter.

Argon filling on the inside of the binoculars prevents fogging of the glass surfaces and provides permanent protection against corrosion. With the extended eye relief, the entire field of view can be enjoyed at all times, also when wearing glasses. Twist-type retractable rubber eyecups with individual click stops are another convenient feature.

The BL binoculars come with a wide neoprene strap and an ever-ready case.
