First thing I did last fall was buy extra batts for the PDA, Kestrel, and Swaro. Carry them in my bag with me all the time. I bought a twin pack of good ones for the swaro and that was the first thing I changed. Makes no difference.
But thanks for the thought.
Owning the old Leica and having been in the field with the new CFR, I can tell by the statements some have not used the newer one. If you ever get the chance I would try it. But please don't do it indoors at a sports store. Those animals are already dead and it will tell you nothing other than you don't know what the heck you are doing.
I will have the new Leica CFR maybe by friday and My swaro will be called in and shipped for recondition tomorrow. I know a good friend that may lend me his new ziess. I am on a mission now.
I am going to start designing test charts or a" log" if you will, to record my results. I will get good data.
