Bushnell Falcon 7×35 Binoculars with Case Review
Compact binoculars are my favorite; I always feel like buying binoculars that are sleekly designed & look stylish. In case of binoculars, I love the way balance between the optics and compactness is maintained, and I try to maintain the same precision while I am observing the birds.
Birdwatching is my favorite hobby; I love the patience it requires and simultaneously the thrill it gives in understanding the nature of birds.
It’s been around ten years since I have been birdwatching, but the thrill I get is the same, or rather I should say it has increased. In a span of 10 years, I have bought numerous binoculars and tried almost twice the number but have found 7×35 binoculars a remarkable product. It has the following features that made me go for it at its first sight.
