Steiner 15x56 Big Horn
When hunting for distant big game -
elk, caribou or antelope - you need a high-powered, high-performance binocular that helps
you get close from hundreds of yards away. To help accomplish this goal,
Steiner Optics has launched the 15x56 Big Horn binocular.
After a successful test market
during 2002, Steiner discovered most hunters and outdoor users found the added power a
welcome feature for a hand-held binocular, especially when glassing in open, western-type
The 15x56 Big Horn is not a pocket
binocular or theater glass; its a tool for serious hunters. For continuous glassing
from high mountain peaks or from your 4x4 vehicle, the 15x56 Big Horn comes equipped with
a built-in tripod mount to accommodate tripods or window mounts. Yet, because of its light
weight, this binocular can be easily hand held.
The 15x56 Big Horn is a porro-prism
binocular that provides up-close views of distant objects. Featuring Steiners
highest-grade optical glass and BAK 4 prisms, it delivers exceptional sharpness and
brightness. The new Big Horn features Steiners military-proven, fully multicoated
optics that enhance brightness and contrast. With Steiners Sports Auto-Focus System,
all subjects are in full focus from approximately 50 yards to infinity, with no need for
focus adjustment once set for the users eyes. The Big Horn offers 20mm of eye relief
with profiled wrap-around eyecups, a beneficial feature that blocks distracting side
light. The eyecups can also be pushed back so hunters can use the binocular even when
wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses.
Clad in forest green rubber
armoring, the 15x56 Big Horn is easy to grip, waterproof and fog-proof with a rugged
shock-proof construction made to withstand the elements. At just under 45 ounces, the
binocular packs easily when on foot.
The Steiner 15x56 Big Horn will be available
through Steiners network of retailers in early 2003. Steiner products are developed
and marketed in North America by Pioneer Research, Dept. R, 97 Foster Road, Suite 5,
Moorestown NJ 08057. For more information on this product call toll-free: 1-800-257-7742,
