Leupold Adds New Models To The BX HD Binoculars Line
Doug E 02.05.21
Leupold Optics is releasing three new BX line models, two of which, the BX-1 McKenzie HD and the BX-2 Alpine HD binoculars have four optical power options to choose from. The third model, the BX-T HD binoculars have a MIL-L reticle for ranging and measuring targets, primarily for tactical applications. The new models will join the BX-5 Santiam HD binoculars, though in a more budget-minded price range. The BX-1 McKenzie HD and BX-2 Alpine HD binoculars are designed with general purposes in mind, but with slightly different strengths between the two as seen in Leupold’s product descriptions below.
LEUPOLD BX-1 MCKENZIE HD BINOCULARS
“The BX®-1 McKenzie™ HD reveals more details than other binoculars in its class. The roof prism delivers better resolution, and the compact design feels solid in your hands. It delivers class-leading low-light performance with our Advanced Optical System, which delivers the light transmission, glare reduction, and resolution all recreational sportsmen and sportswomen demand.“
The BX-1 McKenzie HD binoculars will be available in 8×42 ($169.99), 10×42 ($179.99), 10×50 ($189.99), and 12×50 ($199.99) magnification powers. Follow the links to see the specifications of each model.
