Re: newcom rangefinders??
I use a Newcon 1500. Under most hunting situations it ranges fine up to 700 yards if holding steady. Used it this weekend on elk mornings and evenings and cattle during the day to validate.
It will range trees, rocks and larger more reflective items out to 1000. Buildings up to 1600 yards.
I do not like the size of it. I compare it to the Leica and prefer the size of the Leica models over the Newcon for size.
As the cost is anywhere from 50 to 150 more for the Leica (depending on model), the Newcon is in my opinion better than the Nikon / Bushnell, but the Leica models are really the way to go.
