Meopta Sport Optics is pleased to introduce the new MeoPro HD Plus binoculars. This completely redesigned Gen 2 version of the award-winning MeoPro binocular line is available in 10×42 HD and 8×56 HD models.
Featuring a more advanced HD optical system, the MeoPro HD Plus binoculars deliver sharper, brighter images and better contrast and resolution than the Gen 1 models. Hunters will also appreciate the edge-to-edge clarity, wide field of view, and outstanding low-light performance in this mid-priced line.
The focus wheel has been redesigned for a smoother, faster, and more precise focus. The modern exterior design, with durable rubber armoring, provides a better and more comfortable grip in all weather conditions. The lightweight magnesium alloy body is built to withstand the most brutal hunting conditions and is tripod adapter ready. Twist-up eyecups are metal with a soft rubber exterior, making them extremely durable and comfortable while eliminating the risk of breakage. They are also designed for easy removal and cleaning.
“We wanted to bring in certain elements of our higher-end binoculars to this mid-priced MeoPro line for an improved user experience,” said Jaroslav Doseděl, Global Head of Meopta Sport Optics. “The new optical system and advanced lens coatings deliver outstanding low-light performance that hunters have come to expect from Meopta, and additional upgrades to this new MeoPro HD Plus line improve handling, comfort, and overall performance in the field.”
Meopta’s MeoShield anti-abrasion lens coating offers added protection to exterior lenses while the MeoDrop hydrophobic lens coating easily repels rain. The diopter adjustment is located under the right eyepiece. Both models are nitrogen purged, shockproof, and fully sealed for fogproof and waterproof performance in the most demanding conditions. Like all Meopta optics sold in the United States, they are backed by Meopta’s Lifetime Transferrable Warranty.
