Description

Steiner 8x42 Predator Xtreme Binoculars - Ultimate Game Finder

 

The new Steiner Predator Xtreme utilizes new lens technology to deliver the highest levels of contrast and light transmission.  The result is bold color contrast between your prey and its surroundings.  Using Steiner's unique CAT (Color Adjusted Transmission) technology, deer and other game pop out of background foliage and shade.

 

From close up to far away, the new 8x42 Steiner Predator Xtreme delivers bright, crisp images with its CAT (color adjusted transmission) lens technology.  Rubber-armored, dry nitrogen pressurized and waterproof.  The perfect hunting binocular for full size light gathering with exceptional field of view.

 

Target Group:  All-around hunting optic that with excellent price/performance value making it a good entry level German optic.  Designed for the dedicated hunter who relies on his optics to improve their success and ability to find game.


 
Unique Feature/Benefits:

 

Color Adjusted Transmission (CAT) coatings – A unique lens coating technology that creates higher color contrast by filtering blues and yellow in the 550 nm range of the spectrum. This makes browns contrast against green making it easier to spot game. This is done without greatly reducing light transmission or altering colors.

 

Improved resolution and light transmission (+3-4%) – better low light performance and brighter images.

 

8x magnification – improved performance that significantly enhances your ability to judge game at a distance. Great optic for elk hunters and anyone who hunts more open country.

 

Common Feature / Benefits:

 


 

Lightweight roof prism design — less bulk and easier to carry afield. Extremely light for their size, these binos will never be a pain in the neck. They are comfortable to wear when hiking/still hunting.

 

Center Focus System— Focusing is quick and easy with a center focus wheel. This bino can focus on objects as close as 7ft.

 

Twist Up Eyecups — At dawn and dusk the probability of sidelight or glare can be high. The contoured eyecups eliminate side light, wind and dust. With a simple twist the eyecups can be adjusted and side shield folded down to accommodate sunglasses or eyeglasses so the user can take advantage of the full field of view.

 

NBR Armoring — Life in the field can be rough for your optics and rubber armoring protects the chassis and lenses, reduces noise and provides a sure grip in wet weather and a comfortable one in heat or cold.

 

Neoprene neck strap — combined with the lighter weight, the neck strap provides cushion and comfort.

 

Rain Protection Cap — A redesigned cover for the ocular lenses uses NBR rubber for easier attachment and can be adjusted to make sure it will stay in place so rain, snow and dust cannot accumulate on the lenses.

 

ClicLoc System — Sometimes a neck strap is just in the way. Attaching and removing the neck strap is a snap with the push-button release system. The locks are positioned so that the binos always hang straight and not at an angle.
 

Quality Carrying Case — A padded carrying case make it easy to safely store your binoculars when not in use.

 

Nitrogen Pressure System — Steiner uses a vacuum to remove all oxygen and moisture from the binocular then uses pressure to fill the lens barrels with nitrogen so the binocular will never fog up. Extreme temperature swings from freezing cold to desert heat will not cause condensation to form.

 

Waterproof /Fogproof— Never worry about a little rain or snow because the positive nitrogen pressure makes it a harder for water to enter the binocular. Submersible up to 9ft. Will not fog even under extreme temperature changes


About Steiner
From its humble, post-WWII beginnings, Steiner has become one of the largest manufacturers of high-quality optics. Optics pioneer Karl Steiner established Steiner Optik GmbH in 1947, offering products from small cameras to binoculars and special lenses. As the company grew, it increasingly focused its production on professional high-quality binoculars. Steiner innovations include rubber armoring, the first binoculars ever with an integrated compass, the first binocular with special optical coating to protect against harmful UV radiation, the pocket-size binocular, and the new Predator lens coating to increase contrast of animals against wooded backgrounds.


Today, Karl Steiner's son Carl continues to strengthen and develop the company's position as a world leader in binocular production, utilizing the highest level of technology and setting high standards for future products with all binocular manufacturers. Steiner is located in Moorestown, N.J.

        Comments about Steiner 8x42mm Predator Xtreme Binoculars:

        I purchased these as a gift for my husband. He wanted German made binoculars and after much research, Steiner offered the best options in my price range. He is impressed with the optical quality but was hoping they would have been larger. He will be primarily using them for wildlife viewing.

          I ordered these for a 5 day Kansas whitetail hunt and they exceeded my expectations. Also can't beat the price!

            I shopped and shopped some more before buying these. I looked at Nikon and Leupold in the $400 range as well as the higher end Leupolds. Buying the Steiners was a very easy choice after looking through all of them. They really should be a best buy.
