    I just spent four days scouting the Avintaquin mountains in Utah in preparation for my first Elk hunt later this Fall.  I brought along the Vortex Solo 10x36.  After testing it in the field I can say I'm very satisfied with my purchase, and I'm glad I bought it over some of the other optics that were available.

    Pros:
    -The Solo 10x is the same power as my hunting scope, which helps me as I familiarize myself with gauging distance
    - It weighs less than comparable binoculars while still providing the same magnification
    -It is less bulky and more portable than any binocular I've ever used.
    -It cost about half as much as any of the binoculars
    -This thing is built SOLID.  It really does feel sturdy in your hand.  And I'm reassured by the Vortex guarantee that backs up all of their optics in case of any damage. 

    Cons:
    -The saleswoman pointed out to me when I purchased the Solo that because I would be holding it one-handed I would have less control and therefor notice more shake in the image than I would with a pair of binoculars.  She referenced her own shaky hands for why she did not use one.  While this may be the experience of some, I did not find it to be the case for me.  I was able to see clearly even out to the furthest distances without any noticeable shaking of the image.

    Another thing I noted while I was shopping for optics is that because I have an unusual eyeglass prescription (one of my eyes is near-sighted while the other is far-sighted) I seem to have difficulty seeing clear, crisp images through binoculars.  Unless you want to buy a VERY high end pair of binocs you cannot find a pair that has independent diopter adjustment for each eye.  When I tried a monocular the trouble was resolved; I only had to focus the lens for one eye.  That took away a lot of distraction from using the device.  Where I found myself constantly fiddling with the binoculars, the monocular was easy to use every time.

    I got this before the bigger size came out and I wish I had waited.  I do take this with me every time I am bow hunting because the size and clarity make it better in certain situations than my binoculars.  For bow hunting I would recommend the 10x32 or the 8x25 but overall I am happy with mine.

    Awesome monocular for the money

    By

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    Great little monocular, I was a little hesitant to order because I have a 10x25 solo that I am not so fond of, but the 8x36 is awesome. I prefer to use monoculars for bow hunting to save on weight, and this gets the job done. Crystal clear glass and gathers a ton of light. The only down side to this is that the focus ring was a little tough to rotate at first, but after using it for a couple of weeks it loosened up and is much easier to use.

    Perfect pocket companion

    Always home in my vest pocket when hiking, hunting or on camera shoots. I keep one in one range bag for use at our local 100 yard range, easier than lugging the scope.

    I use this for deer hunting. Great glass fits in my small hand very well. I'm able to operate with one hand..the only thing I don't like is the velcro strap for the case..makes it loud for hunting

    I got my Solo for Christmas and was excited to get it out in the woods I used in for late season deer and coyote. Nice lite weight perfect power to see details without lugging bino around your neck Nice clip on the side. I would recommend them in a heart beat.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    Have used this on hunts, vacations, bird watching, and everything in between! It is small enough you have no reason not to take it on your adventures. Great clarity and I can't repeat enough just how nice it is when you and the family are traveling and you want to see something.

    It also has a great tactical application for low-visibility use due to it's size.

    Ok monocular for the money

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    I bought this to carry with me for bow hunting. The image isn't extremely clear at really any range. I bought it online through cabelas and wish I had gone somewhere and looked through one before I pulled the trigger and got it. That being said, for the price it does its job.
