I have both iRay MH25 and the new StingIR 640, and between the 2 the StingIR (In my opinion) is the better unit. The image quality seems roughly the same but a bit better on the StingIR. Looking through both units simultaneously I noticed that the StingIR have what seems like a bit of smaller picture then the MH25, but realized that's due to the fact that the MH25 is not a true 1x but slightly enlarged picture due to the front optic ocular lens zoom, while the StingIR maintains a true 1x picture. Another advantage is the ability to use 18650 in the StingIR compared to the MH25 that takes 16650 battery with extension. The StingIR has a better controls, it's lighter and the built quality is very good. note : If you planning to use 18650 "Protected" type battery be aware that the extension provided with the kit might be a bit short and tight fit. I wish AGM would included an extension cap that supports these kind of common batteries.

Fantastic Performance, Fabulous Package

I purchased the StingIR 640 for general outdoors use and have been extremely pleased with their performance and build quality. First things first, this monocular is extremely pocketable and very light. How much tech AGM jams into such a small package is impressive. The image is ultra-bright and razor sharp. The FOV is highly useful and the 8x zoom with the large sensor really delivers spotting value. The optical clarity is apparent even with the eye-cup folded down and using my glasses. Buttons and menu options are intuitive. The ability to swap CR123s and 18650s is very convenient and battery run times are consistent with the specs. (Though, I think AGM should include a few extra battery case o-rings at this price point; I may just have missed them in the lovely Pelican-like custom case.) As one would expect from a +$4K unit, these are extremely well crafted and performance oriented.
