A successful hunt relies on many factors but one of the most important comes down to being able to accurately view large areas of field and woods. Designed to maximize field of view at medium distances, the 8x56mm Trophy Xtreme binoculars by Bushnell promises to grant shooters a more robust viewing area in a single glance. Bushnell sent over some Trophy Xtreme binoculars for Guns.com to take for a test drive to see if they measure up to the hype.
The Bushnell Trophy Xtreme 8x56mm binoculars offer a slim design, weighing in at 30.1-ounces. Its compact build is attributed to the binoculars’ roof prism design. These prisms are coated with Bushnell’s signature PC-3 Phase Coating. The lower 8x magnification and larger 56mm objective lenses yield a greater field of view than the 10x50mm variant of this line. At 1,000-yards you will be able to see an area that spans 300-yards across with this model. The larger forward lenses also gather more light particularly at dusk or dawn when it matters most on a hunt.
Included in the box are a neckband, soft case, and instruction manual.
