Re: need a new range finder

I have the Zeiss LRF and love them. I do a lot of varmint hunting and like to take shots out to 500yrds with my 22-250. I take them everytime I go out. I dont even take binoculars anymore. I have ranged coyotes and rabbits out to about 550yrds. I have ranged cattle past 1000. Larger things out to 1400yrds.

    I got my swaro few years back... and i never regret it. they are really good, ranging in the extreme condition and relativ small compact size... why would you invest 1K on bushnell when you can get swaro for the same ammount and range further?

    i've really compared between the Leica's, swarovski's and the ziess. I think without bias that the swaoro is the best unit. The leica is good as well, but the swaro is a little more consistant and better glass. The Ziess were good and I thought had great glass, but the computer is too slow and without a tripod it is hard to get a solid read on most things past 600 yards. I think that any of the three would make you happy, but i think that the swaro's are the best.

    You will be happy with either of the three. Just depends on what all you want in a rangefinder.

    I havent had the chance to use the swaro, but my wife bought me the leica 1600. The glass is awesome and ranges consistantly. I dont think i would look at anything else. Good luck leica all the way.

    I like the Fusions for the price and Bino/LRF combo. The Swaro's have the clearest/cleanest glass and edge out $1k or less LRF's as far as ranging performance. Just my two cents...
