    In the many football contests we have had on YardCrap, the Gnome's prizes tend to be bird feeders or things they find about the house. (Old people have a lot of junk).
    On the porch today thought why not a binocular as a prize as I like them?

    I have 4 1/2 pair, but need all mine. I use at least one of them everyday.
    I went on ebay and looked at used ones around a $100.
    This remains one of the hardest items to find a "deal" on.
    There are 44,000 listed and not one deal at this price.

    I paid $20 for my first pair (10X20) to look at birds with, and was thrilled at what I could see, but would not wish those on anyone. The minimum is 10X32 which is nice. I have a pair of Steiner 10X20 I would let the Gnomes post, but I don't think most have the ability to appreciate 10X20. Even I don't.

    Most men can use a 10X 32, 40, 42. Experts claim 8X is the best, but I disagree. 8X is excellent, especially if on foot or in a boat.
    On my porch I use 12X50 as I am on my ass. When walking about, at a concert, or game - take my 10X32.
    On my boat use my oldest pair (25 years) - 10X40. These things are worn smooth and still excellent. Good binos last decades even with hard use.

    Today there is no break on a decent, used, set on ebay around $100.
    I'll keep checking. If nothing turns up, may have to re-gift the prize I won in the contest last year - a photo of US GRANT.
    Anyone (other than Ed) who has an idea or could throw in something some one gave you that you hate, let the Gnomes know.
