Fortis XSR Binoculars
With the XSR we set out to build the ultimate angling binoculars. Designed to provide the angler with pin sharp vision for even the furthest of casts. Vital for all anglers looking to locate their quarry, whether it’s fish showing at extreme range or evaluating bubblers at 50 yards, the XSR are designed with clarity, durability and weight at the forefront of their development. Each pair is tank tested and submerged to ensure they are fully waterproof. Add to this the XSRs are Nitrogen filled to prevent fogging and you have some serious spec all for just £99.99!
So what does the 8 x 42 bit stand for? Built for the dedicated angler, the XSRs are designed to fit specific angling requirements. All factors have been thought of from clarity to weight and venue sizes to casting range. The first number (8) refers to the magnification, or, how many times closer an object will appear when looking through the binocular compared to looking at the same object with the naked eye. The second number (42) indicates the diameter of the objective lens (the light-gathering lens) in millimetres. Consider this general rule: low magnification provides a wide field of view and is easy to hold steady. So although a magnification of 10, 12 or higher is available, 8-power binoculars are the optimum magnification for handheld use without the aid of a tripod. The XSRs are the ultimate tool for performing in tricky conditions, the lack of shake making them ideal for boat and tree work. For fish spotting at dawn and dusk the 42 millimetres of objective lens allows plenty of light in so you can capitalise on peak feeding times.
First we brought you our polarised sunglasses to help angler’s “SeeDeeper” now we bring you the latest in optical performance to help you “SeeFurther”.
The XSR are the final piece in the watercraft jigsaw.
