These are awesome
It is nice not having to adjust focus. Hands, weapons and targets are all crystal clear. They make it much easier Starting IV’s and doing trauma assessments as well.
A must for night vision
This item is great it is a must for CQB applications. Feels extremely smooth and durable.
Thanks for the great support and awesome review!
Works as expected
These lenses are expensive, but to be able to dial to the exact light transmission you prefer is a plus. Of course this also affects your depth perception up close, but can be changed on the fly. Helps with passive aiming too. Outside of pin holes in the lens caps that came with the goggles, these are the only solutions I’ve used, so can’t speak to the merits of any other ones, but they’re solid for sure. They’re a little stiff to dial out of the box, but seem to be loosening up with extended use + additional Teflon oil.
Thanks for the review Nicholas, if they do not loosen up to your liking let us know!
Legit for driving and fine up close use and increased field of view. Shot an indoor night match with an enfield 38 revolver and still took 8th out of 30
Easy to use. Works well as described. My only complaint is that when making adjustments to the Tarsiers, the objective lens on my DTNVG spins, creating a degraded image. I had to apply tape to the objective lens to prevent them from moving.
Great product but very expensive and not sure it warrants the price tag. I think this product would sell significantly better if priced at 125 and would be considered a requirement for anyone running nvgs.
Refocus done right
Purchase, slip on, then perfection!!! No really it is, Easy on the fly refocus like it was meant to be. Price is a high, but so is the customer service and the quality of the Tarsier. If you are on the fence, I would recommend taking the leap. Would buy again 100%
Chad, thank you for the support and the great review!
Good, but only after some tweaks
First off, they took 3 months to get here. For an instant gratification guy, that ******. Thank they were geey sticky.They would adjust the focus instead of the iris. When you buy 2, they give you the lube kit and extra sacrificial lens for free. I suppose if you only buy one, you will also neednto biy the lube.Hopefully they will include yhe luve free, or fix the sticking problem. Once all that was done , and i finally got them in my hot little hand, they worked as advertised. I even got a free hat. Thanks guys and gals!
Chris, thank you for the review. We apologize for the long wait we had some issues obtaining materials the last few months and some operational shutdowns over the holidays. As for the sticking problem, they usually have a small break-in period that can be jump started with the dry teflon lube. If you have any additional issues please email email@example.com
Benefits vs Cost
The purpose for these eclipses are substantial and help with NVG usage and focus. But improvements can be made to the current design. I can reason with purchasing a pair for 50% off, not full msrp. I also expect either smaller profile eclipses with more firm fit as well as a more slim profile on the eclipse lense.
every set of nods should come with these
although pricey, well worth the money. provides protection, ability to adjust aperture, etc
Great product fast shipping.
These make a world of difference on close range fucus and controlling light intake.
Thank you for the review!
I sent an email and was contacted via return email within an hour. Great service from Americans in an American company.
Awesome piece of kit
I have eight of these, and a couple more on the way. These things are fantastic. I’m out under Nods at least six nights a week, and I find myself using these multiple times every night. Not only as a focusing device, I also use them to control the amount of light coming into the device, if it’s a bright night. The lens quality is outstanding as well, great light transmission and no weird lens flares that you can get from lesser quality glass. Overall I’m very happy with them, they’re a great accessory.
Installed and used for about a month either shooting, camping, hiking or what not they work great and do what they’re intended to do, my only small gripe is that when installed and trying to adjust the tarsier they move, an easy fix is using electrical tape on the inside of the tarsier. I guess if I had to recommend anything to the design team, it would possibly be to slim down the design and make the adjustment knob slightly easier to twist? At any rate they do the job and are a great tool. I wish I would have invested in these a long time ago it’s handy and functional. Maybe not totally necessary but it makes life easier.
Ryan, Which NVGs did you put these on? It could be an issue with not having the correct Tarsier size (we offer two different sizes). We do our best to keep up with the sizes, but as more and more people are getting into making these tubes we are trying to catalog them all. Thanks in advance MATBOCK
Really like these Johnny number fives a lot!
One of the best solutions
I've tried some 3D printed caps and they broke under general usage. I didn't want to do the old Butler Creek cap solution because I want to protect my work and personal 31s. The Tarsier is been one of the best solutions to protect your 31s. Their solid mounting, intuitive focal shift and the sacrificial lens ensures you won't deadline you nods from a Sim round or any debris from doing work activities. Great product!
Thanks Patrick! We appreciate the feedback
