I really want to compare them but have not. I welcome a side by side if anyone is close with a Terripin. When I bought the PLRF10's that Shawn and I are using the Terripin was not around yet. But after a long search through many top RF units with depressing results, the PLRF10 was a dream come true. Shawn felt the same way when I sent him one for his observation. He was testing high end surveying lasers at the time and once he got the PLRF10 in his hands I never got it back...
The last time we shot together he ranged a rock he picked out for me at 2500 plus yards. As he laid the PLRF10 down he said " I love this thing".
I have actually heard reports of the Terripins ranging farther than the 10's. The 10 seems to have a report limit of 2999 yards. But it will do it on a regular basis and in many conditions. I want to see if the Terripin will do this on a regular basis along side the 10. I also want to compare beams in some tuff to range conditions to see which one works best or if they are equal.
As for ranging , and actually hitting a deer with either of these lasers at 1500 yards. Well be careful, the 10 might knock him down.
And I feel the Terripin would be right there with it.
