Hi

It's really first a matter of whether you want a monocular and, second, if you want a monocular that large - that really is half of a full size binocular. The disadvantage of monoculars, regardless of size, is that they are more difficult to use than binoculars when it comes to finding the target and when it comes to steadiness and, most importantly, monoculars produce a lot of eye fatigue over long viewing sessions. Monoculars are at their best for something you pack when you need something smaller than binoculars and when all you want to do is take a quick peek. They cannot compete with binoculars for serious work. In other words, what I'm trying to say is that you could get something smaller and much more comfortable to use with a compact binocular or even some mid-size binoculars. Just don't see an advantage to that large a monocular unless you have vision in only one eye and, even then, a binocular will be easier to steady.
