Steiner product support is exceptional. My binoculars were more than 15 years old and I was having compass problems. I talked to the Steiner dealer at a boat show
, and he said, "No problem. Those have a lifetime warrantee. Just send them to the service
center, and they'll take care of it."
It was a exactly as he said. Repaired promptly and professionally--for free. Ten years later they are still going strong.
There are a LOT of Steiner knockoffs being sold
out there. In most cases they just put cheap
optics in a housing that looks like the real thing, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to find cheap
optics in a housing with the Steiner name fraudulently slapped on--especially on Amazon or Fleabay.
