The MeoPro binoculars (8×32, 10×32, 8×42, 10×42) represent Meopta’s mid-range series of instruments, between the top line (“MeoStar”) and the “entry-level” series (“Optika”). The MeoPro’s compete successfully in the middle class of the market, with a nice modern design, ED glass, good mechanics and optics, all at an attractive price.
