    kid, it doesn't matter if you edit your post. you bumped the thread, and people quoted you immediately. GCN has warned you in every thread to stop digging up old threads because it's trolling.

    take a hint

    mando, when you first signed up here, your posts were generally decent and educated, but now it seems like you are trying to be annoying. Stop digging up old posts, and show respect. No one has a problem with YOU. just the way you are acting.

    I'm thinking Bushnell ??? something like that. I think DCB said he found them at Target (which I don't think you have in the UK ). But that model was from a few years ago, not sure it's still out or even what model it was... Sorry I can't be of more help. I do remember he said they were in the $10-$20 range and he needed 2 for each helmet.

    Wow, I have a few questions about these binoculars. Why would 2 pair be needed? I see just 2 eye pieces used on top of the helmet correct? I don't see what part needs to be used twice?

    Secondly, if anyone has a model number handy that would help. Or even a photo of the binoculars before they have been torn apart. So far the only 8X21 Bushnell's I see are like this:



    and nothing about them screams out to me that these are the right ones

    Thanks for any insight or help any of you can give me!

    Those aren't the right ones. You need the 10x25. They're discontinued as well so you'll have to go to a store and check their old stock. The new versions have been re-styled and the thumb knob is different.

    On another note, they still aren't 100% perfect but I'd say they're about 95% close enough. The reason you need two pair is because there is only one lens that you can focus and is the only one that comes off of the pair. The zam helmet used 2 focusing lenses. Then you have to create the connection between them. You get most of the frame with the binocs but it's still a lot of work to build the pair. I'll be making them with the helmets ... as soon as I get word of the helmets being ready.... any day now I hope he'll give me an update

    Thanks for the clarification! So maybe this is the older style?





    And these are the newer ones not to use?



    Or neither?

    Then again, if we get lucky and you make our helmets + binculars I might not need to worry about this. I still like to get all the particulars and research straight.

    Maybe the body of both the 8X21 and the 10x28 are so nearly identical it doesn't really matter. It looks like the same frame is used on those two photos as far as the knob goes and the ocular area.

    The frame is the same but the design of the adjustable lens is different. It's tough to explain but the design that allows the lens to rotate and focus is completely different. I bought 3 different pairs and ruined 2 pairs that I couldn't return learning this.

    Yeah, that first one is correct. The 2nd phot is tough to tell.. it might be right too. they could be using old photos for their new stock. I have a feeling that even if they were ordered from a website that they would still use the old photo and send you the new model which is why I'm going to stores personally to find them. They even try to give you the new model there.. they don't realize that they're different.

    I have a request to those with DCB helmets .. purty please ... Since I traded my helmet I don't have one to look at and my fiberglass guy needs to know exactly where to trim the helmets. I completely forgot to look at that on my helmet. I need some photos of the bottom of the helmet if someone would be so kind Thank you thank you thank you !!!!

    I would be interested in buying a helmet when they become available. Is there a list to put my name on for when they become available?
    I'm not in a hurry. Just now starting the very early getting information so I can start getting things and spreading out the budget. Figuring some time next year I should have it wearable.

    Thanks!!

    MonCal... I can't believe I missed this thread! :o Do you still need pics of the helmet? I can send some to you. Mine is still in good condition, except for the one back tab which fell off, and I haven't glued it back on yet.

    Lemme know....

    MonCal, the lid has arrived. Hooray!

    What flicks do you need?

    Also did anyone else find these lids are a little bit on the wee side?

    Yes, they are a tad small, and you can't stuff foam inside, and you will get helmet head.
