I wonder how accurate it's ranging at that distance?
Since they are only rated for 2400 meters.

I am also interested in these little units. Next couple of years I'd like to head out west and hunt bear with my edge. I'll need a better range finder than my Leice 750.

Not sure. I tried a few more times on the same rock and received blank. Would have been nice to see another reading. I was impressed and surprised to range almost 3400 yards with the unit. Of course the conditions were ideal. No problems at all with reading ranges in the mid to upper 2K.

Good to hear, I've been talking about getting one
for a few months now. Next week I'm putting
in my order and the swaro is going up for sale.

Re: Terrapin PLRF05 or PLRF10

We have run the Terrapin side by side with the PLRF 10 and the Terrapin will do anything the 10 will and sometimes more. This was disappointing since you could own 2 Terrapins for what the PLRF10 cost. The 10 has some theoritical advantages over the Terrapin but in field use the Terrapin was every bit the RF that the PLRF 10 was. Like Broz said when we got ours the Terrapin wasn't available.

This makes it even more satisfing to hear from someone
who knows how to put equipment through a proper field
test. Thanks for reporting your findings.

Re: Terrapin PLRF05 or PLRF10

I baught a Terripin. I have ranged a small knob on a hill side.....I hit the first three times I ranged it. 4848, 4842, and 4849 yards. I am sure I was hitting different parts of the knob to get the different readings. This was off of a tripod in my Hunting shack about 10 min after sunset.

I have ranged many, many points, knobs ,river banks, cliffs, ect..over 3000 yards with regular repeatability at all times of the day. I love, LOVE, L O V E it!!!!


I am very intrested in some kind of power booster....5x isn't enough, IMO!! More info, please!!
