    I think the optics tip was right on. You really get what you pay for when it comes to optics.

    My top recommendation for choosing a good optic is taking time and reading review sites. There are a lot of them nowadays and they not only have buying information, but also reviews. Plus some even review brands: https://outdoorempire.com/finding-best-binocular-reviews/

    So if you do your research it is almost impossible to go wrong with your optics choice.
