    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.

    Ugh... you HAVE to use two hands to focus this thing! The image quality *is* their... compares with my DiamondBack 10 x 42's. But if Vortex could just make the focus ring on this thing able to be manipulated smoothly by one finger for one-hand operation (just like the way it feels on the DiamondBack) this tool would multiply in value exponentially!! My hope was that I would be able to use this one-handed. I read a lot of reviews and many sited the stiff focus ring. My hope was that it'd be the same level of stiff I encountered on the Leupold Yosemite BX-1 8x30 binos I have. Those are stiff, but it IS doable with one finger... but no... this monocular IS EVEN STIFFER!! I cannot turn the ring with the same hand that holds the monocular. The rubber knubs on the focus ring just bend over and then your fingertips (Index finger and thumb) lose the leverage of having anything to exert against. I'm hoping that with a lot of working the snot outta the focus ring that over time it *may* loosen up?? I'm just really let down that you can't do one-handed operation with this. I was looking to shave some weight off my pack for times when I know I'm going to pack the spotting scope as well. Also was thinking one-banded operation for when carrying a bow in the other would be optimal. Guess not. :(

    I use this at both the pistol range and the indoor archery range. Easy to operate with one hand. Compact and powerful enough to see bullet holes and arrows at 20 yds.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    When I'm hunting out of my fixed blind for deer, I love my binoculars. But when I'm stalk hunting, the vortex solo 8x25 is in my pocket. It's perfect for Indiana and Ohio hunting. It is small and light and keeps me from using my scope to identify movement.

    Just got this in the mail yesterday. I must say I'm impressed. It's easy to use and all the negative reviews are ridiculous. You can operate it with one hand, you can hold it steady past 100 yards, and it's really clear. One of the best lightweight tools I'll have in my bag.

    I received this as a birthday gift and let me tell you it has been an awesome gift. I take it with me when I'm out scouting, bow hunting and on nature walks. I like the fact that it's not bulky and very lightweight. Sorry I can't complain about this product.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    This product is extremely helpful while helping a single student make sight corrections and grading targets. It cuts time nearly by 1/3 with walking time to check paper. The lens is extremely clearly and the magnification level helps keep us on target and not getting "lost in the glass." It's been knocked over rattled around and no damage has been noted on the optic showing us the quality of the craftsmanship. We are looking at getting each of our instructors outfitted with one each to help speed things along.

    Best optical product I know, and the price is Amazing!!!

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Solo Monocular - Green:

    I was looking for a new pair of binoculars for deer season and I quite couldn't find the right pair. Leopold was to pricey and Bushnell quality has gone down hill. Went to local Gander Mountain and saw all the Vortex binoculars and monoculars there. I tried some of the binoculars realized one eye I was having trouble with focusing to the other eye. I asked to see the solo monocular that was 10X25. I was the price and realized the good OL' wifey would love the price! I asked to see it....All I can say it blew my mind! It was so crystal clear! Anti-Fog, waterproof, gripping, and small!! Perfect fit for anybody. Focusing is easy and for your dominate eye or eye that has better vision! The size is amazing too! Not too big or too small. Doesn't feel like it drags your neck down. Super light weight! The lifetime warranty is outstanding, even though I know I won't ever use it because the quality and engineering was perfect and right on the money! The way Vortex is changing the game with quality and price, they are the number one optical choice and will continue to be number one! I love my solo monocular and as well I loved it, so much that I wanted the vortex rangefinder and it blows my mind! Great company, and I will continue to buy scopes, and saving money for a diamondback spotting scope! Go out and buy! It will not leave you down!!
