"topproduct !!!!!!"


Ideaal om mee te nemen tijdens trektochten. Dankzij het hoog schemergetal en het het groot gezichtsveld is deze uiterst geschikt om in het duister van de ontwakende ochtend of de vallende avond, dieren te observeren. Robuuste uitvoering. Waterdicht ! Een echt volwaardig alternatief voor iemand die een geen topverrekijker kan meenemen (te groot, te zwaar, ...).

"Highly recommended"


Having previously purchased some Lynx HD binoculars (which continue to be superb after a number of years!) I decided to add to my kit with a Mono HD. I had a number of reasons for this. Firstly, I wanted an optic that I could simply slip into a pocket for taking to watch sport and music concerts, secondly, I wanted something I could easily take out with me on a kayak for spotting that did not cause obstruction while wearing a life vest and thirdly I wanted an additional optic to keep handy next to my kitchen window for instant spotting! After much debate I took the 10x Mono HD. After 7 months of use I can safely say this is a fantastic piece of kit. It is compact but still has a sturdy feel in the hand. It's ergonomical focus is well balanced between being pronouned but precise, and it has satisfied all of my stated needs, often becoming the kit I reach for to take with me on any excursion! I have gone to many sporting events and indoor and outdoor musical performances and have been able to pop the mono in my jacket pocket, reach in for it when needed, spot and focus quickly and sharply. It is also lightweight enough for me to have accurately digiscoped freehand with some great results in amongst a busy rock music crowd! I've taken it out in dusk light spotting wildlife by boat and can attest that the scope is indeed waterproof and also excellent in low light. A great piece of kit and highly recommended for anyone looking for something with similar needs to mine or for a lightweight pocketable scope.
