Very solid. This is in no way cheaply built. Conforms to the hand nicely too.
You have two controls, image focus and reticule focus.
image focus is obvious but the reticule focus is for some kind of past complaint that the reticule would be blurry.
Basically - set it so it's perfect and never touch it again.
This made me laugh when I saw it. It's "custom" all right. Doesn't mean it's good. nudge it a bit and your optic might fall out. Nice big open spot to let the environment scratch the lens.
The belt loop is a snap on loop. Not sturdy for a pound heavy monocular. If you're climbing and it falls loose, your consolidation is it's in the case as it falls I suppose.
Sew the loop so it's permanent.
Turn the case inside out and sew patches of cloth on both sides closing the gaps. I had some leather lying around (black leather) and sewed it on. Looks 10x better and 100x more sturdy. Beats buying a new one and after all, it is "custom" made for it. Too bad they didn't spend an extra 20c on cloth for each one but oh well.
Uses Mrad measurement. Basically you need to know the height in yards and how many mrads it takes. TargetHeightx1000/mrads.
very accurate. Tested it out on some houses (using 10ft for a story) and cross referenced with Google Earth - correct distance.
If you hate math, go for the cheaper non reticule sponsoring monocular. I think they're $90.
Very clear.Read more ›
The mil-rad reticle and the silhouette outlines make range-finding both concise and expedient. Just a little time invested in familiarization with the reticle features, makes range estimation intuitive and effortless. It also serves as an excellent backup to laser rangefinders in case of electrical failure of these devices.
The monocular in generously rubber armored and appears is constructed to withstand continual use in most any environment. The body of the unit is very ergonomic, the focus ring situated perfectly for ease of access, and the resistance in the ring is perfect for fine focus adjustment and holding that setting without being unduly difficult to rotate, even with a gloved hand.
The fold down eye cup is also a nice touch with the side-light diffusing feature. It really does help when there is bright sun behind and to the side when using the unit. A good feature with a nice touch.
Optical clarity is outstanding as is brightness of image and ambient light transmission. Dusk and dawn reflect the superiority of this monocular to other optical products! The light gathering ability of this 8x36 optic is simply stunning, especially for the price point!
While weight of this unit might put some people off, it is no more, and certainly less than most ultra compact binoculars, and the visual acuity combined with the brightness of image of this Vortex Solo R/T shames most of those product. I would FAR rather carry the Solo R/T into the field than any of the ultra compact binoculars, both for compactness, quality of image and portability.Read more ›
The down side is that the "pouch" provided is next to useless, and is essentially open on two of its four sides; which seems like a good way to loose the monocular, especially if you don't make sure you hook the belt clip onto the pouch for added security. Additionally the belt clip itself does not seem overly sturdy. Based on a previous customer reveiw I purchased a flash-bang pouch to hold the monocular (and had already received that when the monocular arrived), it works very well.
If I was purely reveiwing the monocular I would probably give it five stars; however the issues with the pouch and clip, which lets face it are part of the price, prevent it from acheiving perfection. The monocular own its own is excellent.
