After talking to a couple of people on here I decided to take the plunge & get a PLRF10
I contacted Mike Nolan but I couldn't get one out of the States to New Zealand without a ton of red tape so he was good enough to CC my email to Switzland
I got one direct from them as there is no civillan agent here.
It cost me a bit more but at least I got one
I also got the optiontional data cable with the trigger on it...but it isn't necessary
Just by leaning on a post outside work in bright sun, I got readings up to 2550 first time until I tried 2765 but it got it the second time
, the cool thing about it though was at the same time the best I could get with my Swaro was 1064 & then only 5 out of 8 times & my CRF 1200 1 out of 10, that was the day it arrived & I realised why I had spent so much on it
Make no mistake it cost a lot of money...was it worth it...HELL YES
I have since sold both my previous rangefinders.
Recently I got a CRF 1600 for general hunting duties & I'm happy with it
