Field & Stream Doubles Down On Nikon’s Monarch HG

MELVILLE, N.Y. -( Nikon is proud to announce its MONARCH HG has been awarded Field & Stream’s Best of the Best Outdoor Gear 2017.

“This is not just the good stuff, folks. It’s the best of the best.” according to Field & Stream’s editors.

Field & Stream’s editors went through countless hours putting different brands and products through rigorous testing and here are their results.

“With Field-Flattener lenses that minimize distortion at the edges, the MONARCH HG binocular produces an image that rivals that of the best German-made glass.”

In August of 2017, the MONARCH HG was awarded Field & Stream’s Best of the Test and is now being awarded with Best of the Best. Awards were also presented to manufacturers of firearms, bows, knives, reels and rods.

Nikon has always made top of the line glass at an affordable price and the Monarch HG backs that up.

“The MONARCH HG combines outstanding glass, prisms, coatings, optical design and materials as well as a throwback retro look,” said Jeremy Bentham, Sr. Manager; SRO Sales & Operations Nikon Inc. “We were determined to bring the best optical quality for the price point in modern optics, and we feel the MONARCH HG’s achieved this and more.”

A few words from Field & Stream magazine:

Each year boatloads of new outdoor gear hits the market, and we get our hands on most it. In 2017 we tested 57 new fishing rods, 41 new reels, and 27 new optics, just to name a few categories. In the end, some of it is junk. Most of it is good stuff.

And a very small percentage is better than everything else—so much so, that it deserves special recognition on our short list of the year’s very best new products in the categories you care about most: guns, bows, optics, knives, rods, and reels. How do we know the 16 items below are tops?

Every one underwent rigorous field testing by our experts, and all but a few took Best of the Test honors in our annual, exhaustive Field Test evaluations. This is not just the good stuff, folks. It’s the best of the best.

Perhaps I am just a tight wad. I don’t know. $900+ for a pair of bino’s may be a great dead to some and may even be worth it by there is NO WAY I could justify that in my budget . It boarders on Crazy. I might have a notion to pay for high dollar glass on a gun but this is simply not practical. That kind of doe can put meat on the table, or many other high value items. Seems that sporting goods have really gone crazy with their prices in recent times. Maybe the makers of… Read more »
