1500 yrd range finders

Im looking for a range finder that goes to 1500 yrd's I have used the lica geovid, leo, and swor, they dont cut the mustard. I dont know what the prob is but here in hawaii I cant get any of them to go over 950 and thats after ranging many times. I need to know what are really the best, what do they use when I hear people getting ranges at 1500 to 2400. I dont even see advertisments for thoughs ranges.

Re: 1500 yrd range finders

I know you metioned that you have used the sworovksi's but i thought it was worth mentioning. yesterday I was sitting on the top of a ridge ranging opposite hillsides. with my swaro, i repeatadly ranged out to 1900. most of the clearings i ranged were from 1500-1900. The reason i bought this unit is because others told me that it would consistently range out to 1500. maybe yours was a dud? anyway, good luck.

Forget the Newcon!

For the money, you can't beat the Swaro for your application.
