Affiliate Disclosure

In the course of business, I review many products on this website. I'm always looking for quality binoculars and related products that will hopefully inform and heighten your enjoyment of their use. Many of these products have links to an affiliate program which this site has joined. This means if you like the review and purchase the product using the link on this site, I recieve a commision for it. This does not mean that I will endorse products just to make a quick buck. I aim to be as open and honest as possible highlighting the good and bad features of every binocular or accrssory that I review. Some binoculars especially the top of the range ones are so good it is at times very difficult to find any fault in them and this is why at times I only focus on the posetives!
