WO binoviewer "color" of body new
      #5669758 - 02/08/13 08:59 PM

Iam in the market for a binoviewer. I like what Ive read/seen about the William optic ones.

BUT, I want the newest model and Iam seeing black, tan, silver "body" ones and Iam curious which is the newest model?

According to the William Optics webpage, it appears to be black.

Looks just like mine. I recently bought the WO binoviewer and mine is black and white. I love the binoviewer, especially since getting a Siebert Optics Multi-Mag.

Thank you both. I see W.O sells directly through E-Bay. They sell the b.v package for $199. I just wander how long shipping from Hong Kong may be.

I ordered mine from OPT. A quick check shows they have them in stock. They are priced at $239 but they will give you a discount if you ask. I think I got mine shipped for something like $225.

I got mine two years ago from OPT for $199 and they are white. They perform quite well for an entry level BV.

I did see that OPT has them http://www.optcorp.com/product.aspx?pid=7382&kw=binoviewer&st=2

are they showing two different models or years? The larger picture half way down the screen is what I thought I was looking for. The smaller "thumbnail" one in the upper left looks to be different? maybe Iam just used to seeing the "top" of the B.V

The white and black picture in the main body of the description ad is the correct one and is what I have.

Mine WOs arrived four days after ordering, and I live in New Zealand. IMO delivery was superfast.

Just call OPT and tell them WO website is offering it at $198 direct and they will match it....that's what I did.

They couldn't match it. I bought them from O.P.T any way. I can't wait!

Good luck with them, they should look fantastic in that 6" fract! Let us know when you use them.

Thank you, and Thank you all for the replies. Yes I will report my findings.

It ought to be fun in the 6" fract but I REALLY hope it works well in my 17.5" dob
