Vixen Apex Pro Binoculars Provide the following Important Points of Difference
Comparable Performance at a Fraction of the Price of Other Leading Brands. With the rrp of the 8 x 42 being a mere $699 and the 10 x 50 just $799, Vixen Apex Pro binoculars provide comparable—and in some aspects—superior performance at a fraction of the price of other leading brands. That is why I am prepared to put my name on - and give my unqualified 'antler tick' of approval to the Vixen Apex Pro binoculars.
Lightweight, Yet Rugged Aluminium Frame. Because the Vixen Apex Pro is built on a lightweight, yet rugged aluminium frame, the Apex Pro 8 x 42 weigh a mere 705gm (25oz) compared to some other brands of the same specs which weigh around 935gm (33oz). This is 227gm or 8oz less.
The Apex Pro 10 x 50 weigh just 815gm (29oz) compared to 934gm (40oz) for some other brands of the same specs. This reduction of 227gm or 8oz for the 8 x 42 and 312gm (11oz) for the 10 x 50 may not seem much, but by the time you add your rifle, daypack, GPS, knives and other equipment, any unnecessary weight should be avoided.
Spectacle Wearers Receive a Full Field of View. Unlike some brands, Vixen binoculars give spectacle wearers a full field of view. This is an important point of difference. In fact I know of one spectacle wearer who was not aware that a leading brand was not giving him a full field of view until he tried Vixen Apex Pro binoculars. He quickly sold the other leading brand to buy Vixens.
Note that twist up/down eye cups are used to set eye relief. In the down position eye relief is set for people who wear spectacles. Twist them up and they are set for people who do not. However - even when the eye cup is in the down position, some spectacle wearers cannot see the full field of view through some brands whilst they can through Vixen Apex Pro binoculars. Clearly there are points of difference between binoculars which cause one to be a perfect fit for one face but not for another. Consequently you should always try binoculars before you buy to ensure they fit your face—especially if you wear spectacles.

Vixen Success Story- Geoff McClure
After comparing all the leading brands highly successful sambar hunter Geoff McClure chose the Vixen Apex Pro 8x42 Binoculars.
On Friday evening and overnight it rained fairly heavily. I put up a couple of sambar on Friday but nothing I wanted to take. Saturday was clear but cold and very windy. I hunted up high in some steep gullies looking for a stag sheltering out of the wind. Whilst glassing an opposite face with my Vixen Apex Pro 8 x 42 binos I spotted a large sambar stag well below me on the other side of the gully at a range of about 250yds. It was standing still facing away from me on a bit of bare ground - a bed I presumed – and it was unaware of my presence. There was a strong crosswind so I used a tree as a rest. At the shot the stag disappeared from view but I heard the bullet hit and found it dead down at the creek.
Without my Vixens I probably wouldn’t have seen that stag. I have been using Vixens for several years now after discovering their performance was right up there with other leading brands but at a fraction of the price.
