VANGUARD Pro Staffers are winning local, state, national and world archery championship titles, raising funds to take servicemen and women injured in the line of duty and terminally-ill children on adventurous hunts, managing popular ranges and shops, teaching archery in after-school programs, leading regional archery associations and clubs, and more. Though they're diverse in experience, age, background and industry involvement, VANGUARD's Pro Staff members share common loves: Archery, the outdoors and VANGUARD sporting optics. Scattered across North America and in Australia, too, this mix of energetic teens to seasoned pros with decades of experience all agree: VANGUARD binoculars and spotting scopes run laps around the big-name optics they used before discovering us.

Thomas Cigainero picked up archery only five years ago, but if you watched him shoot, you wouldn't believe it. He has quickly earned a solid reputation in the archery community for his talent and enthusiasm for the sport.
Thomas is so pleased with the performance of his VANGUARD products, he puts his Endeavor ED binoculars in fellow shooters' hands so they can see the impressive quality for themselves.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my Endeavor EDs since receiving them," Thomas said."They are fast to focus, clear and precise. I have passed them around at all my tournaments so far this year and at my hunting camps last fall. They impress all that see them!"
Thomas is also a pro staffer for Mossy Oak and GoldTip. He looks forward to shooting for the rest of his life.
