Re: Binoculars and Rangefinder or a combo unit?
well if you decide you want a pair give us a hollar sometime.
when i talk about the max ranging capabilities of range finders you have to take into context what im saying. we have taken out all of the rangefinders we sell, bushnell, leup, swaro, nikon, and leica. for a full break down do a search on it and you will prolly find the results you want most likely. for a quick break down here is how it goes IMOP
Bushnell: good but kinda dark, moderate reticle, ARC feature is nice, range of around 1k (the only one i havent tested alot)
Leup: i love the company, i really do, but the rangefinder is lacking
Nikon: they offer a great, small, light weight option for bow hunters, glass is dark
Leica: best reticle in the business, great glass, good out to 800 yds or so on game sized animals
Swaro: best for max range in the business, honest 1200yd or more ranging on game animals in most any condition. downside is the reticle is to big
When i say max range on game animals try this test, go out on a completely clear day at the brightest time and try to range brown cattle at 1000yds. if you get a range then range objects around the animal and range the cow again. if you get consistent results then you have a good range finder. trees, rocks, trucks, and what not are easy to range ( i have a buddy who thinks his Nikon 400 will range animals great out to 900 yds cause he got a range on a silo one time)
bottom line is their is a difference
have a good un
