I am considering purchasing one of these but need some help. Searching I see lots of overlaping comments but no thread that was a direct comparison. Amazon has the Skymaster for $67 shipped. Best price for the Oberwerk that I can find is $157. I understand that the Oberwerk's can be colliminated if needed by me but I can't find anything on the Skymaster. I would love to hear your experiences with these.
Thanks in advance, Ron
I would spend another $8 bucks and order from www.digitecoptical.com
Ever hear of refurb's
Factory returns need to be resold from somewhere...

The all rubber coating surface is comfortable. Most of all I like the rubber collapsible eye cups.
I guess the price at Amazon went up, even so the $69.95 price is only $10 dollars more than I paid for the 10x50 Bushnell's I bought over 25 years ago. The 15x70 weigh 3 pounds, If your used to the 10x50's size, 15x70's aren't that much different to use free hand.
I think the are a fine value and 5 Stars to the ease of use for those of us that wear glasses. I had to take them off with the Bushnell Sportview.
