Vixen Foresta HR 8X32 binocular (item RC14511) with warranty
The New Foresta HR (HR stands for High Resolution) 8x32 is a beautiful binocular. The focus is smooth and the unit has a cool diopter adjustment incorporated in the center focus.
This unit was a return from a retailer who used it as an indoor sample. It was used I tested it and it is optically and mechanically in good condition. It has some wear marks but otherwise functions as normal. It is missing the lens caps but does have the strap and case and box. I notice that the left rubber eyecup does not go flush with the lens barrel but has no effect on the viewing. Normal Retail is $289.00. Includes a 90 Day Warranty.
