Sponsor #1: Primary Arms

This month, Primary Arms Optics has released a new line of SLx and GLx 10x42mm binoculars, which deliver premium performance and features for a fraction of the price.

The SLx binoculars offer edge-to-edge clarity with enhanced color definition and image brightness. A close minimum focal distance and wide field of view make them easy to use at any distance.

If you want even greater performance, the GLx binoculars add premium ED glass and a magnesium body with a rubber overmold.

Priced at $129.99 and $259.99 respectively, Primary Arms’ SLx and GLx binoculars are certain to be a top choice for both outdoor and travel enthusiasts this year.

Got Better with Age

I remember years ago when they started, it was disorganized, and they would talk about some products and competitions and most didn’t know the answer, and I would have already voiced it out loud to myself, and then a few minutes lates, after they did a few google searches they would say the same answer I already said. I was about to drop them after a year, and they didn’t post anything and then they started to come back strong. Now they are more organized and already have all their reviews and research done. They are starting to get out there more and experience more products and competitions where now this podcast is starting to be more informational to me then when it first started. Keep it up guys!
