Considering their affordable prices the Helios Mistral WP6 are remarkably competent instruments for both birdwatching & general observing and very good value for money.
Features include modern, ergonomic, top hinge design constructed from lightweight but robust polycarbonate and finished with green rubber armour.
Waterproof and Nitrogen purged to eliminate internal condensation (fog-proof).
All models feature high-index, silver-coated BaK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics for bright high contrast views.
NOTE: The premium 10x50ED model include premium Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass to reduce chromatic aberration and phase-coated prisms to enhance light transmission and image contrast.
The Helios Mistral WP6 range is covered by a 5-Year Limited Warranty.
I bought these for my wife and me to use. I found them to be really good, but my wife couldn't adjust the eyepieces close enough together to suit her face. They are now being re-gifted to my son, so there's nothing lost, but it's definitely something I should have considered more when purchasing.
FLO can be thoroughly recommended. It was well worth paying an extra £1.00 for DHL delivery who keep you informed of every stage of the process. The order was placed on a Saturday and delivery was the following Tuesday - very efficient especially considering the Covid lock down restrictions. The Helios Mistral WP6 binoculars are outstanding value for money. They are exceptionally well made, easy to use and the image is as sharp and clear as more expensive binoculars - exactly what I needed.
1213/5000I received the tool today, (very fast shipping thanks!), Immediately tried the binoculars, in the 12x50 version and I can only be very satisfied! Sharp and contrasted image, excellent build quality and correct collimation. I have been looking through binoculars for many years and have some, the 12x50 was the one I had always snubbed and I was wrong! Although being at the limit of freehand usability, I can now say that I prefer the 12x50 to the 10x50! The additional 2x allow greater intelligibility of details by reducing fatigue on repeated viewing. I can say that for the modest price it offers a remarkable optical quality, the handle is that typical of roof binoculars, but in this case the larger diameter of the 2 optical tubes (compared to a 10x42) and the rubber cover help to obtain an excellent grip and greater comfort of use. It is not binoculars with ED glasses, but I challenge you to grasp the differences with normal use. The image obtained is always bright, pleasant and detailed, all contained in a compact and easily transportable tool. I can't recommend it. Thanks to First Light optics for the best price it offers !, Carlo VIOLA (Italy)
The binoculars arrived extremely well packaged, absolutely superb. Very pleased with purchase.
I needed a pair of good binoculars for close focusing on our Budleia for our butterflies and Steve Tonkin recommended this pair. Excellent choice, great crisp views of our butterflies and a great view of the moon too.Highly recommended and great service from FLO.
