GPO, USA, the industry’s newest premium optics company, introduces the PASSION ED binocular portfolio. This product is German designed and engineered, combining quality, features, price and value for the benefit of the American hunter, birder or outdoor enthusiast. The PASSION ED binocular lineup is built on a high-performance and highly durable magnesium frame and includes 32mm and 42mm objective lens models.
“PASSION ED will set a new benchmark for this industry by offering the highest quality/value ratio seen. Optically, it’s excellent as expected from a GPO product, but we have also incorporated features into this binocular that are normally seen in products priced significantly higher,” says Michael Jensen, owner and CEO of GPO, USA.
The PASSION ED binocular line will be initially offered in 8×32, 10×32, 8×42 and 10×42 models. With smooth-rotating aluminum locking eyecups and a magnesium micro-bridge and main core ergonomically built for maximum hand-holding comfort, these binoculars will meet the needs of everyone looking for a high-performance entry-premium field optic.
Models include a wide-angle field of view, GPObright high-transmission lens coating technology boasting 90% light transmission, extended eye relief and close-focus capabilities that are sure to please the optical enthusiast. Waterproof and nitrogen-purged for fog-proof capability, the line features phase-coated prisms for optical performance and an included custom molded hard case. All models are available in four colors: Charcoal Black, Deep Green, Desert Sand, and Dark Brown Earth.
