Re: NEWCON Rangefinders

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.

Re: NEWCON Rangefinders

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

Re: NEWCON Rangefinders

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

Re: NEWCON Rangefinders

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.

Re: NEWCON Rangefinders

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.
