Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory for the 3 gun range bag The Solo R/T is a fantastic accessory to throw in your range bag if you shoot 3 gun. I have 3 pieces of equipment that always go with me when there are long distance rifle shots involved. 1) My solo R/T 2) My Ranger 1000 LRF and 3) My Kestrel. The Solo R/T allows me to get an eye quickly on targets while walking through stages, get rough range estimations and target sizes and helps me plan my stage. The optical quality for the price is great, and I love the reticle. It also slips easily in to a pocket out of the way until I need it and doesn't take up much space in my range bag. Must have piece of gear for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome compact piece of glass I love to use it out coyote hunting very compact and easy to focus. Takes a little bit getting use to and remembering the formulas but, a very handy piece of equipment. Well built rugged set of glass and clip on side of it that will attach to just about anything. The 4 silhouette quick reference marker of meters is great for a on the go quick situation. Bang for buck this is the lense to own!!! And all backed by VIP warranty. Wouldn't trade it for anything. Thank you guys and gals at Vortex!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE! I bought 1 of these after I was on a CO elk hunt and my guide had 1. It works great and its way better then any bino I have ever had. My left eye doesnt have the best of vision, so no need for a pr of binoculars. I would highly recommend this for anyone. My guide has a scope with the same stuff and the 2 work awesome together

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for bow hunting Bought this as I am blind in my right eye, so binoculars would be waste. It tucks nicely on my shoulder strap for that quick look before the shot. Before vortex was stuck with poor quality optics and construction of a golf monocular the optical clarity is amazing with vortex

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear, sharp optic in a handy package Very happy with this monocular. The optical clarity is very good. Having the reticle is a great benefit with range estimation. It's a regular part of my hunting and hiking kit. Small and light, it's easy to add for outings.

Does this monocular also have angle compensation? 

Asked by: Hoss0988
The Solo R/T has a ranging reticle, it is not a laser rangefinder. When using a reticle for ranging you are measuring an object with the reticle so it would give you a line of sight distance, and would not compensate for angle.

What size lens caps do you recommend for this monocular? Objective and ocular lenses?
Asked by: Jacob
You can use an O-40 and E-10 from our Defender Line. You'll need to fold down the eye cup in order to to fit the eyepiece on.

I see two adjustment rings in the picture, but the description only talks about 1. Is there a reticle and image adjustment or just a reticle adjustment?
Asked by: Michael
There is an image and reticle focus wheel.
