  • What users have to say about Vortex Optics Solo R/T 8x36 Monocular

    It is an excellent backup to laser rangefinders in case of electrical failure, the monocular is constructed to endure continual use in most environments.

    My husband and I went to a high school football game and saw a dad using a scope to see players on the field, and he talked about how great it would be if he owned one.

    The quick range silhuettes are rugged, easy to hold, and can be clip on for molle. If your product becomes damaged or defects, we will repair or replace it at no charge.

    There is no lens protectors for either unit, so the case is supposed to provide that, but it doesn't happen. A neoprene scope cover might do well for this, and would be preferred.

    If you want to measure accurately, you need a stable base, and I think Vortex adds a tripod mount/screw to the base.



    Please tell me if this is a range finder.


    Yes. It has a range finder, but it is not an electronic one.


    Will it be able to attach to a tripod or camera stick?


    Yes. You can attach it to a tripod, camera stick, and a rifle, see the comments section under this item at the Vortex site. It may take a little work, but it's easy to make it fit a tripod and the buffer tube.


    What is the use of the manual?


    It's in English so that's a plus, and it's good if you need to start a fire or need something to read when you're on the john.


    Do you have a belt clip?


    Yes. There is a huge metal belt clip and a pouch, but they are not very useful.


    Is there a monocular with a polarized lens available for fly fishing?


    I wear a sunglass with a monocular and use it to spot steelhead in rivers, which is an impressive combination.
