Re: New Leupold RX 1500 Range finder

I have heard many reports of the new, newcon 2000 ranging every bit as good(even better in some cases) than the swaro, but at roughly half the price! I doubt the glass is as good, but the reports on ranging abilities have all been the same,

All the revues I've read so far were not good regarding the RX 1500. But one that I have read good revues on is the Bushnell Elite 1500 which they have two different versions. The day I get one, it may well be this one.

Re: New Leupold RX 1500 Range finder

IM REALLY torqued off I bought the RX-IV instead of the Lieca I feel like such a sucker. Chineese built, to many modes (better take the manual with you)and worst of all..I have trouble reading non-reflective past 400 most of the time, and sometimes I can get reflective readings at 600. I am so dissapointed. Only once have a got a 1000yard reading, on a huge reflective street sign. Much good thats going to do me hunting. My vote don't buy.Oh and try to EMAIL Leupold your opinion, they gave me an email address that dosnt work. Seems they dont want to hear it.

Buster, Check out the link above, these folks do trades too. Contact them, they may take your junker in on a trade for a Leica. Worth a try.

I have not heard of one person that was happy with the Leupold LRF's - any of them.

I have a couple of bushnell's that work pretty well, and a military AN/GVS-5 for the really long stuff - I use it with a 50BMG.
