Re: My new Swaro rangefinder is on the way!!!

You will love it. I have ranged out to 1875 yards on a sunny day. Crystal clear optics. And the 8x magnification will work in place of binos in a pinch.

My only gripes about the unit is that that the twist-focus eye piece doesn't always stay in place. And the red circle projection for target acquisition is hard to see in bright conditions, or if your eye isn't lined up perfectly.

Re: My new Swaro rangefinder is on the way!!! ***UPDATED***

I was able to take it out for a test yesterday about 90 minutes before sundown. I was able to range a small bump at 1556 yds. The deer and antelope are in trouble!

Swaro capabilities are great! I was out recently and was ranging trees at 1200+ on a sunny day.
