Re: mad as h*ll range finding in the snow

talked to a zeiss rep. at the eastern outdoor show and got tot play with the new rangefinder, was easily able to range cars over 1400yds. The rep. said one of his customers tested zeiss with swaro and the zeiss would do everything swaro would but quicker response and laser beam was 3ft wide at 1000yds. I don't know maybe he was trying to sell me one, nice piece though.

    I'll believe it when I experience it myself. But I hope it's true, since the Zeiss is a bit less costly than the Swaro. And the competition may prod Swaro on to a better product.

    BTW, I talked to a Zeiss rep at Show Shot in Orlando last month. He didn't lead me to believe their new Zeiss would either match or exceed the Swaro ranging capabilities. But he did lead me to believe the new Zeiss will outrange the Leica LRF.

    Well the ball's in Jeff's court at this point in time.

    was at the show today and forgot all about the Zeiss RF. dang! was talking with a guy at Huskemaw optics. he said they would be releasing a range finder that would, in his words, usually range 24-2500 yards. couldn't get any more info from him. still in prototype mode.

    Buy the Swarovski 8x30 Laser Guided Range Finder. I just bought a pair and they are awesome. The Swaro's is the best Range Finder hands down! I've used Leica's, Bushnells, Leupolds and Nikons Range finders. Niether of these range finders even come close to the Swaro in optics and ranging. The Leica's are very nice and are way better than the Leupolds, Bushnells and Nikons, however, they still don't compare to the Swaro.

    I guess Reeper got a good one. He sounds like me the first day with my new Swaro... Then the more I used it the love faded. Maybe I will re-kindle the flame. We will see.

    Re: mad as h*ll range finding in the snow

    Broz I am wondering how the test are comeig? I was trying to range 500 to 600 lb first year heifers out back yesterday in bright sunlight with my Lieca 1200. I was very dissappointed. If I can not range a cow how is it going to work on a coyote or deer? It was only 300 to 500 yards that I was trying to range.

    Which Leica????????? CRF 1200 or LRF 1200 ????

    I just got word from Swaro. My Swaro Laserguide 8x30 had to go all the way back to Austria. They estimated 8 to 10 weeks So needless to say it will be a while. I want all 3 together on bipods ranging the same game at the same time. I am going to see for my self which one is the hot dog in this price range (under $1000)
