It’s that time of year again. All the manufacturers are working hard to make decisions on the changes in their product lineups. After all, SHOT Show is just around the corner. Webyshops.com has been hanging around the grapevine to catch all the exciting news and be the first to bring it to you.
In the binocular lineup, Vortex is introducing us to a whole new category – Crossfire II. This binocular series features fully multi-coated lenses, nitrogen gas purging, o-ring seals, and rubber armor. Which means the Crossfire II binocular series will be one tough pair of binoculars with excellent viewing.
Currently the Crossfire II line is scheduled to debut with two size choices.
