A different range finder question.

So I am red spectrum colorblind and cannot see the red reticles of many rangefinders unless it is fairly dark. My question is what is the best rangefinder that does not have a red reticle? Also if any other colorblind members have any tricks to see the reticles better?

    Vectronix , with my PLRF10 I can choose from a black fine crosshair or a red illuminated box. I prefer the crosshair. I think the Terripin is this way too.

    Muletrip, they are top end units and are expensive. I do know of less expensive units with black aiming reticles and display. Zeiss and Bushnell to name a few. Problem is I would not recommend either for what I like and demand in a laser RF.

    I understand. The PLRF 05 , also know as the terrapin, is about 1/2 the price of a PLRF10. Still top end and very expensive.

    How far do you need to range game?

    Do you hunt in hills or flat ground mostly?

    Jeff, I hunt both hills and flat ground. The flat ground is for pronghorn and there is usually a lot of sagebrush. I want to be able to range farther than I can shoot, about 700 is my max that I am comfortable with for game and shoot to 1100-1200 on targets.

    Is the distance read out also black on the PLRF10 or is it red?
