  1. Anne (verified owner)

    I bought this for my husband & he is extremely happy with it as he is blind in one eye & it is perfect for him to take to the footy & watch the play. We were also very impressed with the quick delivery. The site was easy to use when ordering. It is a lovely product. Thank you.

    The monocular is of a nice weight and I’m quite liking the lighter colour, it feels good in my hand and is easy to operate. I also like the bright, clear and sharp image.
    I enjoy using it and I’m sure it will get a lot of use, especially watching the birds as they feed in the nearby trees.

  3. Annette Mizon (verified owner)

    Just took my monocular on a trip to Chad. Appreciated its brightness, clarity and light weight. Quick to focus and perfect for someone who struggles to see well out of a big pair of binos. I was able to keep up with those with far more expensive gear. The platinum colour does get a bit grubby but cleans up well. The front lens cover definitely needs a redesign. After reattaching it a couple of times, it was lost. Customer service was excellent in getting the monocular to me in time for my trip. Happy with the purchase.

    This monocular is perfect for my job as a fencing contractor for sighting fence lines

    Excellent service, excellent monocular.

  6. Michael Chew (verified owner)

    Quite impressed with the optics of this unit. Its not going to beat the quality of other more expensive hardware but it is certainly no slouch. Good resolution , bright images and excellent value for money. Highly recommended!!

  7. Gregory (verified owner)

    The monocular is excellent and found very steady and clear. Used it for the first time last week, the front lens cap must of detached and fell off after two minutes of use and was not found. The case that it came with was not very good and would benefit from a shoulder strap, the binocular itself has no useful points to attach a shoulder strap too. Will now have to invest in a decent shoulder bag a new lens cap.

    The Avalon monocular is far superior to another one I tried. Suits my purpose very well (to use with the camera app on my iPhone). Very happy with the purchase.

  9. Geoff Brown (verified owner)

    Very happy with monocular and spotting scope I will be purchasing the tripod!!

  10. Terry Kearns (verified owner)

    My second try at a monocular. This one is far superior to cheaper ones; but nowhere as good as my good binoculars. I have a vision disease and need something less bulky. This fills the void reasonably well. Slightly difficult to maintain stability due to its magnification but is oo.k. Not as bright a picture as higher quality products.

  11. david jarvis

    Partner has mismatched eyes, so chose 10×42 monocular for her. This proved difficult to hold steady for her, so I returned it- refund process fast and efficient, thanks. Instead I’ve just ordered 2 x mini 8×32 binoculars for her (one is a gift for someone else) which I anticipate will be well received. Thanks

  12. Fred Becker

    I like it. Good price. Easy to use. Good image quality. Being tripod capable is a nice extra. The hand strap was a bit confusing but I figured it out. The ability to attach a neck strap would be a nice feature. Not sure how well the Platinum color will hold up to dirt over time. Lens caps fit fine. No complaints.

  13. Margaret Zometsky

    I haven’t used it extensively yet. I bought it for an upcoming trip. I have a fabulous pair of expensive binoculars that are great but very large . I was looking for light weight and compact and I got exactly that. I think I’m going to like it.

  14. Julian Irinyi (verified owner)

    Beautiful piece of equipment.

  15. Geoff Northam (verified owner)

    Very pleased with the 10 x 42 monocular. Easy to use with single hand (which is important for me as I have to operate equipment with the other). Magnification is good and image stability is not a problem with one hand usage. Image quality is very good. Overall very happy with the product.

  16. Gary

    Loving the monocular, I do a lot of hill walking and supervise groups for DofE. This is perfect for observing them form a distance, nice and bright and good magnification!

  17. Dee

    I bought this for my daughter, an avid hiker. She is thrilled with it. She tested it out by looking at the Space Needle in the distance from her apartment balcony. She saw people in the observatory with hands on the glass! Loved how light it was and its viewing power! Also loved its sleekness!

  18. Laura Morgan

    Great quality, everything present and correct!

  19. Wendy Gilliard

    This isn’t a reflection on the quality of the product but I just could not get on just using one eye. Delivery and return was very quick and efficient. I have gone on to purchase binoculars which are more suitable for me.

  20. Colin Anderson

    With a poor left eye, this is clearly the viewing answer. Going to give it a proper test on a trip to India shortly, but it seems to have more controllable and quicker focussing, together with good bright optics.

  21. Miss Jane

    Absolutely thrilled. Desired Binos for a while, although with astigmatism in both eyes and differing problems found Binoculars slightly difficult, especially when needing to see ‘it’ NOW!!! Love the Monocular

  22. Dave Jeffries

    I’ve got a dodgy right eye and binoculars have been a problem in the past as a result. This bit of kit is a fabulous. Well engineered and well recommended.

  23. Ian

    Very happy with this monocular. Focussing is easy and I have a clear view with my glasses on or not wearing glasses. Better than my big binoculars.

  24. ian morris

    Just received this monocular and I truely recommend it for general ocean use. I surf and now having this mono is really handy to check out waves,that are out the back of the breaking zone and sure does make it easy to spot good waves.So glad I got rid of the old 7 x25 bino,s.This new mono is light weight,easy to use and fits in my pocket…just so handy.Great product.

  25. Rob and Sue

    This was a replacement for a cheap monocular that had given us a taste for such a device. It has been a complete revelation. While the price seemed a bit high the ease of focussing and very bright image makes the Avalon very satisfying to use. Very happy to recommend.

  26. Lynnda

    This is a beautiful piece of equipment. I have not used a monocular before so I am still learning. I like it better than my binocular but would have liked some written information with it. It only came with a pamphlet on binocular instructions. I am still experimenting but I am impressed with its clarity. I look forward to mastering its use. Also I was impressed with the ease of ordering and the very quick delivery. Thank you.
