TRACT Optics TORIC 12.5x50 Binocular

July 2019
Author: Stanton Upson

Featuring highly prized SCHOTT HT (high transmission) glass for superior image quality, the TORIC 12.5x50 binocular combines this proven level of optical clarity and color brilliance with an increased 12.5x magnification for improved long-range viewing. The combination of fully multicoated lenses and prisms, dielectric prism coatings, and phase correction coatings ensure a higher level of light transmission over a larger part of the visible spectrum while the flat multicoating enhances the color brilliance and increases light transmission over a wide spectrum of light, especially in the green spectrum.

Combined with standard features like a magnesium alloy body, argon-filled, waterproof, and fogproof construction, and multistep eyecups with rounded edges, these enhancements deliver incredibly sharp and bright images. A locking diopter eliminates inadvertent movement of the diopter in the field. The large ocular diameter enhances the ability to see detail, while the ultra high-definition ED glass and oil-phobic/stratch-proof/smudge-proof coating provides first-rate performance.

"The most important piece of gear in every western hunters' arsenal is glass. The Toric 12.5x50 hold their own against most brands across the industry, and at their price point, they are a force to be reckoned with. The Schott HT glass continues to amaze me, especially in low light conditions, but they continue to hold their own into the heat of the day. I like ot glass off a tripod, especially in big country, and coupling TRACT's new Quick Release Tripod adapter, a guy could glass all day. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm hard on things. The fully rubbed body construction of the Toric has proven to be durable enough for the task, and the best part is that you'd assume it would tack on the weight, but stacked up against similar products, you're only talking a few ounces. On top of the durability benefits, the rubbered body allows for a comfortable, slip free grip for those off moments when I would freehand the binos and not have them on a tripod. If you have the chance to get your hands on a pair of these, you better. I'm looking forward to covering some country with them in 2019." - Stanton Upson, Hunt Advisor
