Meopta’s MeoStar10x42 HD Binocular Wins OutdoorLife’s Editors Choice Award
The new MeoStar 10x42 HD binocular received the highest honor of “Editors Choice” against an elite field of competing binocular models from Swarovski, Leica, Zeiss and others.
“If status and brand are important to you, then plunk down $2,000 for a high-end European binocular, but if you want performance and durability on par with the best Austrian optics, then spend half that amount for this Czech powerhouse,” stated OutdoorLife in an excerpt from the June/July edition magazine test.
This year, OutdoorLife’s optics editor and a panel of hunters and optics experts assembled in Montana to evaluate the newest sports optics offerings for its annual gear test. Each entry is awarded an objective letter grade for overall optical quality, low-light capability, mechanical design and ergonomics in addition to rigorous scrutiny by the expert judges. OutdoorLife magazine presents its “Editor’s Choice” award to the optic with the highest overall score and Meopta’s newest binocular – the MeoStar 10x42 HD – took top honors with four stars overall and A+ in optical performance.
The European built MeoStar 10x42 HD is a rugged, full sized binocular featuring genuine fluoride objective lens elements. The fluoride elements eliminate chromatic aberration (CA) or color fringing by bringing light wavelengths into a tighter common focus along the optical axis delivering maximum resolution and vivid color fidelity. Proprietary MeoBright 5501 ion assisted lens coatings eliminate reflections and glare and deliver superior brightness and clarity. A comfortable ergonomic rubber armor surrounds its durable aluminum chassis while precision weather sealing and nitrogen purging keep the MeoStar HD 100% waterproof and fogproof for life.
“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by OutdoorLife and to have our new MeoStar 10x42 HD binocular selected as “Editors Choice” against some very distinguished brands,” said Meopta USA GM Reinhard Seipp. “This prestigious award serves as confirmation to the accomplishments of our sports optics development team, to the product and the Meopta brand.”
