To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
When I received the pen, and after first using the brush as instructed, I uncapped the other end. As described by many, I saw what I thought was the cleaning tip, a foam or sponge ball-like pad that seemed glued to a flat holder. First time I touched it to the lens, however, the ball fell off. Many have described this.
But here's the thing: As is clear in the pictures, the foam ball is ~not~ the cleaning tip, and it's not supposed to be glued to the flat rubber 'holder'. Instead, the flat rubber holder is the cleaning tip. The foam pad is the replenisher, meant to refresh the cleaning tip every time the pen is recapped. The only problem is that sometimes the foam pad can come out of the cap. But just push it back in and close the cap on the pen tightly. I did this and the ball has never fallen out again. This is a decent product. Enjoy it.
The rubber tip works nicely to remove smudges and grease from the lens. Just remember to use the brush first to remove dust.
I made the MISTAKE of ordering this product based solely on the Vortex brand's stellar reputation. I should have actually READ the Reviews, BEFORE Ordering two. The dusting brush is about as "soft" as a regular soft TOOTHBRUSH. No Way are these going to go anywhere near ANY of MY Scopes. Both were returned.
Very Disappointed, I was unable to clean 1 lenses before the tip came off . I wanted a cleaning pen for my vortex scopes . Note to Vortex ....before you put your name on something make sure it’s quality. I glued the tip back on I should not have to. Pay me
Works great, just wish the cap wouldn’t fall off as easily as it does. Pretty much just look at it and it falls off. Great tool to clean the lint off my RMR sight after carrying all day/ week without scratching it.
Didn’t receive the item that is pictured. The packaging it came in was dirty and trashed. It looked like it’s been sitting in box for years. Also pretty sure it was used. I would never use this on my expensive camera lens. I should of read the reveiws but trusted the person who recommended it. I’m sure the actual product is great but I think I received an old used knockoff product.
Inexpensive and light. Was easy to store in my binocular case. Used on a recent hunt to clear dust and debris from the scope. make sure you try to blow out the more abrasive stuff like rocky grit or something that could potentially scratch your lenses.
