I received the Polaris Explorer 12x50 monocular as a gift. For me, there is nothing to dislike about this product. I've always had trouble using binoculars. I couldn't get the images to merge no matter what I did or what brand I used or how much I paid. I know, I know, silly.

I figured the monocular was the way to go and it has proved to be perfect in every way.

Optics are great, weight and size are perfect. Field of view and depth of field couldn't be better. Construction and form factor are superior to anything I've tried. The 50mm front lense lets in loads of light, so even in low light conditions, the image is clear and crisp with no haze around the outside of the lense. During a black as pitch night, I took a look at the moon. Yup, I could see it in great detail.

Two slight problems. One is mine and the other is due entirely to the Polaris Explorer.

12x power is a lot of power. The greater the magnification, the more shake you get. This is easily compensated for by bracing against a solid object or using the tripod (provided). This isn't a flaw - it is a BTW.

I encountered one huge drawback with this product. Everybody - EVERYBODY - who takes a peep through it, wants to "borrow it," after which I would never see it again. All of my friends, a pretty loathsome lot to begin with, have to be frisked before they leave the after being within arm's reach of the Polaris. I've recovered the it times already. It would be easy to say I need new friends, but this product would tempt anybody to lust after it.

My advice ~ buy one for your very own and leave mine alone!

Great for hunting: I purchased the Explorer for use during the elk and deer hunt in Utah this year - we hunt in rugged, high altitudes and I wanted to shed some weight. The explorer worked great; the 50mm primary gathers enough light that you can scan far ridges and distant meadows well before and after legal shooting light. The 12x power is plenty of power for ID-ing the general size of bucks and bulls at ~1000yds, but not for scoring at that distance. The focus has a lot of variance, giving you great control of focusing at different distances - I think the amount of play in the dial is a bonus, but others feel that it takes too many turns to get dialed in, so take your preferences into account.

FYSA these are not Swarovskis, and at this price we shouldn't expect them to be able to compete with such clarity. So yes, while you can focus these very well and get a nice view, they aren't as crisp and jaw dropping as other optics I've used. However, their portability and functionality made them the go-to glass with all the hunters in my group. We...ah...don't own any Swarovski glass, but they did replace my Wind Rivers, and for the weight/functionality, I will not be going back.

Hints:
1) We found holding them focus ring down and dialing the focus ring with your thumb to be the most comfortable way to hold these.
2) Why the rear eyepiece cover doesn't come with a lanyard like the front one does I don't know, but I just took some 5/50 and tied it to the front lanyard where it secures around the tube. Both covers then fall down in a straight line away from your hands when viewing, and are easy to find and reattach without taking your eyes off your subject.

I had a chance to try this monocular out and it was by far the best of four that I've test driven. The clarity at a distance was amazing. I tested it out at about 20 yards and I could see water droplets on a tethered pole. At about 50 yards I could make out individual leaves on a tree easily. The focusing mechanism that sits right above the eye hole spins around several times so the precision allows for significant minor adjustments to get the clariity just right.

I use predominantly for deer hunting. I am very pleased with the product. Clarity and low light capability very acceptable considering price. I did look at a 10x25mm Vortex at a local store. It was nice, but I was concerned about light gathering ability at 25mm. Next step up in Vortex was steeply priced and maxed out at 10x36mm. No regrets with the Polaris Explorer 12x50mm.

I have found a "used" mono-pod at local flea market to use with this monocular. See link for identical product. (http://www.amazon.com/Velbon-UP-400DX-Section-Aluminum-Quick-Release/dp/B002ZQ6UD8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420214951&sr=8-1&keywords=velbon+monopod). 12x magnification is powerful and the mono-pod removes jitter. Mono-pod also removes most of visual movement associated with using a monocular. Deer see movement extremely well.

I also hunt with open sights on occasion. This device is a HUGE positive supplement to hunting with open sights.

The greatest thing about this product is that the optics are good enough to penetrate the edges of the woods around our green fields. This is HUGE.

One of the lens covers is loose. Another reviewer suggested using a small piece of cord to tie the front ocular lens cover to the front objective lens lanyard cover. This worked like a charm and I am grateful for this reviewer's suggestion. I used a heavy weight fishing line to make this connection.

I am an eye glass wearer. I can keep my glasses on and use this product due to good eye relief. Also HUGE!

Good quality product. No regrets. Buy with confidence!
