Have you ever wondered why there are almost no roof prism binoculars with 60mm or more diameter of the objective lenses? This one has 63mm, and it’s not a problem for some, but if you happen the be a person with a relatively narrow interpupillary distance between your right and left eye, you will immediately recognize the issue. Minimum IPD of this bino is about 63mm (most other binoculars have 56-58mm minimum). You just can’t bring the two tubes closer together. That’s why binoculars with wide objective diameters tend to be Porro or some other prism design with a lateral offset.
The optics of the Royal 9×63 are okay, but not overly impressive; many actually prefer the 8×56 model with its more balanced performance.
