Dedicated Angling Binoculars For eXtra Sharp Range (XSR)

With the XSR family we set out to build the ultimate angling binoculars.
The XSR binoculars are designed to provide the angler with pin sharp vision for even the furthest of casts.

Vital for all anglers looking to locate their quarry, whether it’s fish showing at extreme range or evaluating bubblers at 50 yards, the XSR are designed with clarity, durability and weight at the forefront of their development.
Each pair is tank tested and submerged to ensure they are fully waterproof and are Nitrogen filled to prevent internal fogging.

First we brought you our polarised sunglasses to help angler’s “SeeDeeper” now we bring you the latest in optical performance to help you “SeeFurther”.

The XSR are the final piece in the watercraft jigsaw.

XSR 8×42 £109.99

Built for the dedicated angler, the XSR’s are designed to fit specific angling requirements, all factors have been thought of from clarity to weight and venue sizes to casting range. The first number (8) refers to the magnification, or, how many times closer an object will appear when looking through the binocular compared to looking at the same object with the naked eye. The second number (32 or 42 depending on model) indicates the diameter of the objective lens (the light-gathering lens) in millimetres.

Consider this general rule: low magnification provides a wide field of view and is easy to hold steady. So although a magnification of 10, 12 or higher is available, 8-power binoculars are the optimum magnification for hand held use without the aid of a tripod.

The XSR’s are the ultimate tool for performing in tricky conditions, the lack of shake making them ideal for boat & tree work. For fish spotting at dawn and dusk the objective lens allow plenty of light in so you can capitalise on peak feeding times.

8 x 42 or 10 x 42 Binoculars for fishing?

Choosing the right pair of binoculars for fishing is really important. Here at Fortis Eyewear we spend a lot of time developing our products and our XSR binoculars are no different. So should I choose 8 x 42 binoculars or 10 x 42 binoculars? The answer in our opinion and after much testing is 8 x 42, this is because they are hand held binoculars and 8 x magnification offers the least amount of shake. As soon as you increase the magnification to 10 the shake is almost unbearable and you need to start seriously thinking about using a tripod for stability. The 10 x 42 also have a narrower field of view so when scanning the water for those vital signs of fish, you will see more with the 8 x 42 version.
