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 Clear glass! Range estimating reticle! I bought this as I hate the struggle of re-adjusting binoculars while hunting in a rush. This monocular also one-up’d me by having the ranging reticle built in! Whitetail back hieght is easily ranged by cutting 6ft figures in half, quick and easy! The reticle is awesome in the sense that it is useable, visible, and NOT obstructing! The feel is very lightweight but solid and I love the rubber grip on it too. The clip is awesome too so I don’t have binocs swinging around my neck. Oh and I wear glasses so the roll back design on the eyeshade is amazing as well! All this and the glass is clear clear clear! If you are looking for something to peek at animals with quick and easy, this is perfect. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solo RT #2 I have used this optic for a number of years thanks to the folks at Vortex. I unfortunately backed over my first one driving out from the gun range. ( It was still usable, but most likely not weather proof.) When I sent it back I explained it was my fault and hoped they could repair it. I was willing to pay for the repair, it is that good. The turn around time was marked in days not weeks AND they replaced it in spite of my screw up. The Solo RT 8X86 is a great product, but the people who work at Vortex are the real driving force why their products are top quality and reliable. As we would say "they have our six".
