    Newcon are way up the list as far as eyesafe lasers go they are powerful and have great range 1000-4000

    the glass is not german and the reticles are not the best for fine pinpoint targets but they make up for it in that they seem to give a reading under more adverse conditions.

    many of these eyesafe lasers are not good in direct sunlight or rain etc.

    Forget the Newcon, spend your money on the Swaro or Leica for the class 1 laser.

    Joel whats your reasoning for your reply. Why do you believe the swaro or leica is better? I have a leica and I'm not that impressed with it. Thanks Jess

    I picked up a Newcon 1500 couple years ago. Seems like I paid around 225 for it. I have used it a lot under all kinds of conditions and will say out to 600-700 yards its bullet proof. Now I have cussed it in the bright sunlight but ranged some elk on a hill side at 1350 yards on an overcast day. Go figure. I would not hesitate to purchase this product again. I have no experience with the other Newcon models but if on par with the one I have they are probably pretty decent.

    any of the lazers for the civilian market, will let you down on certain days, or certain conditions. that said, i would agree with joel.
