Watching a match between your favorite team and its rival from the crowd is one of the best feelings ever, regardless of which team wins or loses. That may not be entirely true, as watching your team getting crushed can leave you with heartache for some time, but let’s not focus on that. Discussing the match with your friends afterwards is the punchline of the experience, but it won’t be as enjoyable if you haven’t watched every detail of what happened first hand. What’s the point of going to a live match when you’re going to be watching the main highlights on a screen later on, realizing you missed some of the most important plays because you were distracted for a second, or couldn’t see properly? Avoid this. Get yourself a pair of binoculars for soccer for the next match you’re going to watch, and capture every detail perfectly in your memory and live the experience like it’s meant to be lived. Here are a few binoculars for game viewing you should consider buying:
The Terra ED (8×42) by Zeiss is the first pair of binoculars on our list. It’s earned that place too. The only downside to it is its relatively high price. However, being a high end product, it delivers some great features to compensate for its price. The reason we chose the 8×42 model specifically is that anything above 8x magnification is usually too much to handle while watching moving objects, which in this case are the soccer players and the ball. 10 x magnification results in a shaky image and even dizziness. An 8x magnification is perfectly suited for the job, as it’s just enough for the task. That being said, the Terra HD offers precision focus, which makes keeping track of your target all the more easier. It has a well sized focus wheel for the user’s convenience and has good eyecups which make for a comfortable viewing experience. These binoculars are waterproof and fog proof, which of course is expected of a high end product. The image provided by these 8x42mm lenses is quite sharp and vibrant too. All in all, if you think you can live with the price tag which comes with this item, then you should definitely go for it.
Next up we have the 8245 ACULON A211 by Nikon. The price of this product is in complete contrast to the one given above, yet it performs reasonably well. It has a rubber coating which helps with grip and reduces the impact of accidental falling. It also has 8x42mm lenses, and gives a nice and clear image. It is water proof and is nitrogen filled making it fog proof. These binoculars are fairly light too, even if a bit bulky due to Porro prisms, so carrying them around is an easy task. This item is an excellent buy for people who don’t want to spend too much on a pair of binoculars for soccer as it packs pretty much everything you need for watching sports while being merciful to your wallet.
