$30 monocular

Well, I dropped my $60 Bushnell Permafocus binoculars and knocked them out of alignment. After separating the two halves, I now have 2 monoculars which I find much easier to use.

That's an interesting observation! We have two sets of the Permafocus' on board and love them - perfect for use on a moving platform.

Now if we have any fights break out when we have a crowd all wanting to use them, I know what to do!

You guys are wasting too much money. How about 2 pair for $10.00.



No need to thank me. Glad to be of help.

Saw that add last week, I haven't stopped laughing yet, I can just imagine a bunch of people falling down steps, walking over cliff edges and off the end of docks, all looking like Mr Magoo!!!.

In case anyone is still gullible enough to order Zoomies, even as a gag gift, here's a consumer warning:
