Just like the military.
Introducing the Fraser-Volpe Stedi-Eye Mariner binoculars, the best optics you’ll ever own, at least until you get fitted for a bionic eye in 2056.
These were designed with a couple purposes in mind: 1) really high-level badassery, and 2) really high-level fishing. In the first case: well, these things used to be available only to the military and law enforcement, what with all their night vision and near indestructibility.
In the second case: should you be bouncing around on the open water, a little motor-powered gizmo inside stabilizes your image up to 98%. Also: they’re waterproof.
Now, back to why you’d make this kind of investment. Well, for anytime you want to magnify something 14 times from really far away. So: spotting your blind date from a half-mile away. An extraordinarily competitive game of capture the flag. Liberating Europe in your upcoming D-Day reenactment (the French are not happy about this).
Or, you know, a football game.
