Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optic, for what it is. I bought mine 4 and a half years ago. The glass is nice and clear, and I appreciate the milling reticle as I generally prefer milling reticles on my riflescopes too. The silhouette ranging icons are a nice touch, although I haven’t had the occasion to use them. I only have one complaint, and that is the size. The form factor is a little bit too large to fit as conveniently in an EDC backpack as the smaller monoculars made by Vortex. On the other hand, the smaller ones don’t have all of the features of this one. All in all, I’m very happy with my purchase, and I’ve also used it for observing lunar eclipses in addition to hunting and range use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a tank , jack of all trades. This monocular was built and design basically for military use due its ruggedness ,waterproof and fogproof capabilities. Also its edge reticle allows the user range their targets when using a laser rangefinder is not a safe option during field operations .One of the most valuable features is the adjustable focus ring for different users and a very sharp and detail final image.The 15X magnification plus a standard 1/4 thread mount are perfect for surveillance using tripods or using it as a spotting scope . For comfort and easily access it has a clip which makes it very handy. Finally even though the glass is not HD it is crystal clear .All of it cover for repair or replacement under the VORTEX VIP warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Monocular for Observations I use my R/T 10X50 w/ reticle as an observational eyepiece for long range shooting instruction. I can call impacts then quickly transition to RSO to make sure the students are maintaining a safe firing line. Much easier than a tripod mounted spotting scope, though I also use my Razor HD 20-60X85. I've also taken this monocular to PRS matches with me to identify targets of a stage prior to getting on the line. The reticle helps to confirm range to that target.
