disappointing optics

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CT Written on July 25, 2011
Having read some positive reviews about the optics of this monocular I thought it was worth $25 to find out. It might be good for children, or someone who will use it near water. Other than that, I would save up another $25 and get a Vortex solo (also waterproof) for $50. I would spent $2 for a box of Cracker Jacks and hope the prize was a little telescope, as the optics would be as good as this Bruton. I have a pair of Bruton binoculars and think favorably about their construction and optics. This monocular gives such poor image quality and is so cheaply constructed, I am surprised Bruton put their name on it.
Pros: Nice size, weight, waterproof
Cons: poor optics, tight & squeaky focus...
Would recommend: No

Short Update

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on October 1, 2010
Just a quick update to my earlier review. There is one limitation that I've noticed with this monocular: The focus is limited only to the eyepiece and is not much. So don't expect to focus in on anything closer than 10 feet because this will not do that well. But it is tough, compact and so portable that it is still a great hiking companion to have handy.
Pros: Solid, easy to use, clear optics
Cons: limited focusing ability ...

Clear viewing dawn till dusk.

I keep it in a dusty and damp farm truck. It works great for inspecting livestock and spotting varmints.
This is my second Burnton product from O.P. Both are satisfactory.

Pros: Tough
Cons: None for the price...

Excellent Value

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on August 23, 2010
I compared this to two other monoculars that I am now returning because this one was so superior. Sure it costs a bit more and the specs are obscure but they are much better than expected. It does not pay to get too cheap, even at this inexpensive level, if you won't like using it.

I compared these to:

(1) Barska 10x25mm Lucid-View Pocket Monoculars which had too much distortion around edges of lens.

(2) NcSTAR 8x21 Monoculars with the ruby lens coating, which looks cool but they were hazy and the colors were all washed out.
Pros: Rubber Coated Waterproof with bright optics
Cons: Squeeky focus (rubber on rubber)...
Would recommend: Yes
