Swarovski SLCs on Clearance at L.L. Bean

Postby Greg Sargeant » Mon Sep 12, 2005 7:23 pm

Call them and ask for the optics desk. These are not on-line as far as I can tell. The SLC 10x42s were $819.00 and the 8X30 and 7X42 were even less.

Yeah but its more than $400 off what they usually sell for, and deals on new Swarovskis are notoriously hard to come by. Although Cabela's has the 8x30 for $849

Well, even if you did manage to break your extremely durable Swarovski SLC binocular, you wouldn't have to worry-you would be covered by famous Swarovski lifetime warranty and reknowned customer service!!! :D And for the record, I didn't buy them, they were too expenssive!!! :roll:

Greg why are they so costly?? Do they have exceptional light gathering? Or is it because of clarity and color definition?

Both. They are also very durable and they are covered by the best warranty in the business. For this reason they are considered by many to be the best birding binoculars available.

Where did you find them for $511.00? I just bought a pair of Swarovski 8X30 porro prisms but I'm still curious.
