I'm a backpack hunter and just purchased a pair of the 10X BRF's. They're heavy but convenient, and i'm willing to sacrifice the weight for the convenience/efficiency. I don't go beyond 700-800 yds. tho with my rigs so they fit my style well. I'm also a walking coyote hunter, and they'll be with me this yr. on every hunt. Kinda wierd to think my 1200 CRF is now a backup laser tho.

I have a separate RF and binos, I would not combine the 2, because if the rangefinder component breaks, as electronics do, you are then stuck with some very heavy and bulky binos.

If you're happy with how far they'll range and you can afford them, I say get them. Binocs/rangefinder combined is the ONLY way to fly, IMHO. You'll love it! I'll never be without. I use the Bino Manager and it eliminates the size and weight of my Newcon as being a problem.

Now if you won't be happy with the ranging capability of the Leica, the Newcon 3000 is another choice. Better laser but worse glass so you sort of need to chose which is more important to you.
