Vectronix Terrapin PLRF (rated to 2625 Yards)

I have been looking for an excellent-quality, well-reviewed, portable laser range finder (PLRF) with rated capability beyond 2000 yards. I settled on a Vectronix Terrapin, which is rated for 2400 meters (2625 yards) - specs at Vectronix > HOME (brochure link in the lower right). I then set out to find a decent price. MANY resellers later I was getting the feeling tha Vectronix had the reseller price locked at $1995. Fortunately I then ran across a forum post (not on LRH) that mentioned a primarily government-only reseller, Potomac River Group (Vectronix Terrapin Pocket Laser Rangefinder). They have Terrapins in stock at $1825 plus $20 for shipping. I ordered mine this morning and thought I'd pass along the info for others that might be in a similar situation.

Good shooting!

I had my Vectronix Terrapin on the range Saturday. I was sitting on a stool and had the unit on my lap. It fell off my lap and hit the concrete the unit broke and I am in the process of sending the unit back to Vectronix. I was extremely disappointed this mill speck range finder failed after a 2 foot fall.

TH:

Sorry to hear about your mishap. Is Vectronix covering the repair? Spec says tested to 40 g.

Anyone know of a cover for the Terrapin? I see that it comes with a strap, and there are rubber covers available for the PLRF25, but my Internet search turned up no hits for a cover for the Terrapin. I'd certainly be interested in a cover similar to the one available for the 25.

A rubber type cover would be nice to protect the unit.

Sorry to hear that, but can you explain what broke so we can all be careful?

Thx
