handy for hunting

by kh, from United States, CA Written on November 26, 2014
Great little monocular, due to being half the size of binocular I could leave clipped on front of shirt while hiking without even noticing it. Like to armor on it a lot and contours my hand very well. Glass is very clear!!! Won't disappoint!!!...

Fun Pocket Scope

by B-man, from United States, TX Written on November 24, 2014
I thoroughly enjoy this product. In addition to field use, I took it on a trip to San Francisco. My wife learned how to use the ranging reticle, and had a great time telling me how far away various things were. Good image, easy function, highly portable. Great alternative to hauling around binoculars when weight and size are issues....
Pros:
  • Portable
  • good image quality
  • Easy function
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Nice piece of glass

by Beezee, from United States, CA Written on November 6, 2014
The optics are extremely clear and the product functions as advertised. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is simply my preference not to have a belt clip. I thought I could simply remove it, and yes you can, but the clip mount is a thick block (about ~1/4" thick x ~1/2" tall) that is a molded part of the barrel ring right between where you handle it to focus the glass and reticle. It felt more awkward to me with the clip removed so I'm adjusting to keeping the clip on....
Pros:
  • Clear optics
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Excellent scope, case is poor

by Apicoltore, from United States, TX Written on August 29, 2014
This scope is excellent. Great optics, and very easy to use with the ranging guide. Silhouettes also assist in quick distance finding. One thing I'd like to see is a tripod mount on the bottom or even as an option. It's a small enough scope that I'll almost never need a tripod, but my hiking stick has a tripod head on it, and would be a nice way to both carry the scope and steady it in the field.

As others have mentioned, the case is very cheap and poorly designed. Elastic on the sides doesn't even extend all the way down, so it traps dirt and debris and is barely able to keep the scope in the case. Almost worse than no case at all....

All good except....

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, PA Written on August 15, 2013
Great monocular. I have purchased (3) now from Optics Planet. Ordering was easy, shipping was on time and prompt. The optic itself is everything I was expecting. Hard to focus one-handed, but by using your off hand it is easy and quick. Clarity and depth of field is excellent. Only complaint is like most of the others here... the holster is designed badly and the optic "could" slip out the side at the bottom. I just make sure the clip on the side of the optic is slipped OVER one of the bands on the side of the holster to make sure this doesn't happen. I will keep my eyes open for another holster that will hold the optic and provide better retention and protection.
Pros: Ease of use. Quality of glass. Size.
Cons: Holster needs redesign....
Would recommend: Yes

Quick Dope for my Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 11, 2013
I bought this for quick ranging objects at distance. The "quick-ranging silhouettes" in the reticle have been accurate to 600 yards for dialing approximate elevation for long distance shooting. I'd use the "mrad based subtension lines" for more accuracy if I could remember the formula and do the mental math...
Pros: Backpack Compact
Cons: I'm not good at math......
