About Snypex Optics
A new optics company, Snypex LLC. is based in the US (New York).
Snypex sports optics currently offer a small but expanding range of mid to high end optical products that includes binoculars, spotting scopes, accessories for digiscoping and laser range finders.
Designed using cutting edge technologies most of their current optical instruments come with ED glass, strong, lightweight and waterproof magnesium housings and many other features and so make them ideal for most outdoor pursuits.
Snypex Optics currently have a small range of binoculars but are in the process of adding more ranges to their stable.
With mid-size (32mm) and full-sized bins in both 42 and 50mm objective lenses, currently all Snypex binoculars are primarily aimed for use outdoors (wildlife observation, birding, hunting, hiking, safaris etc) and are available at the mid to high end spectrum at what looks to be at competitive prices.
Snypex Optics Binoculars:
Snypex's most recent offering and their current flagship range is their selection of Knight ED binoculars.
There are currently there are six models within the Knight ED series (2x32mm, 2x42mm and 2x50mm), all are roof prism bins with magnesium chassis that are fully fog and waterproof and sport an open bridge body design.
The Knight ED is aimed at the higher end of the market and include many very high quality optical components and coatings including the use of apochromatic compound lenses with extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements.
Other optical features include fully multi-coated optics that you would expect at this price point, but they also have water-repellent coatings on exterior lens surfaces, that not only make them usable in damp conditions, but makes them easier to clean, thus you are less likely to permanently mark them during cleaning.
The roof prisms are all made from top quality Bak-4 glass and they have been phase coated to ensure the best quality image is maintained.
