Newcom Rangefinder

Does anybody have any insight on these rangefinders as far as accurate readings ans quality of the product? I have surpassed the 1000yrd line and want to push to 1500yrds. Looking at the Newcom 2000yrd model.

    I would look further. In the under $1000 club the Leica 1600 is what I choose. The Newcons are bulky, heavy and probably the worst glass of any RF unit. I would add a couple hundred and go Leica.

    Re: Newcom Rangefinder

    i've been using a newcon 2000 for 3 years now and am looking to upgrade. i'm probably about like you, starting to venture beyond 1k. i don't always get readings at 900. it cost me a nice buck this year, just couldn't get a reading where he was, guessed 925, went just over his back. i've got readings over 2400 on road signs but the damn deer don't carry a reflective board on their back so i can get a reading. my point to this is if you want to go over 1k, the 2000 newcon isn't enough. will get to 1k and beyond most of the time, but not always. very sensitive to what it's bouncing off of. i'm seriously considering a terripin, it's out of my price range but i won't be going through the rangefinder upgrade in a couple more years.
