7 or 8 x 50. The big field of view helps compensate for the boats motion, but a small boat in mild chop (which is north Texas all the time) is just too unstable for a 10x or greater. I will be contrary and say don't spend big dollars for a big brand, the high dollar names get you a sharper and brighter image, which is seldom needed on inland lakes. Tasco or Bushnell are fine. Rubber armored of course.
