What else is out there in 10x, that is as good as Leica or Swaro, and maybe a bit lighter, both in weight and $$ ?

Currently using leica 10x42 hdr and although the glass is amazing, they are bloody heavy !
  

there is always plenty of time for procrastination.

I personally dont think there is anything available than those two to be honest, well not in the civilian market anyway. I have a pair of HDB's and they are honestly the ducks nuts. Zeiss might  have a couple of options, then theres everything else after that bro.
  

Every hunt is successful, pulling the trigger is a bonus;)

Yep Zeiss 10x45 advertised to 1300 metres, will go past 1500 but not to 1600.
Heavy but solid in high winds.
Bought offshore and landed in NZ for about $2600.
  

The world is not full of arseholes. But, they are strategically placed so you'll come across one every day.

Zeiss just released a new RF now, can pair it with Bluetooth to put in drop chart from phone. Meadures to 2300m apparently. Price will be heavy though, but you might be lucky and find someone trading away their Swaro el-Range 10x42. That is the one you want! I have had the old zeiss rf (useless in the dark), leica HD-b (that was too bloody heavy and cumbersome), and now have the 2 gen Swaro el Range. They are light and very compact, yet thrive in the dark! Get a second hand one if you canít raise the money for a new.

Kahles have just released their Helia 8 & 10 x 42 RF in the UK. Range 10 - 1500m, weight 880 grammes and UK retail price £1364. I was very impressed looking through them.
