Re: OK Guys, its time to draw the line in the sand. - I\'m ticked off.

Ive posted a similar reply elswhere in the forum but here is my two pennies!

I bought a Swarowski Laser Guide last year, I do not use binoculars per se, but I wanted a compact rangefinder that would double as a basic optic as well if I needed to glass for a target before ranging it.

The Swaro system is very, very good, after initial purchase, I whent to my range to make some holes and took the Swaro's as well. There were some dark sheep in fields off to oneside in a neighboring farm, I knew they were a bit off, but isolated one from the main group and pressed the button. I got a reading of I recall about 1100yds, taking a pace backwards, I pinged the same sheep again, result, 1 yard more!

I then turned my attention to a less contrasty sheep that was similar in shade to the grass / mud, the Swaro's ranged that one at a similar distance and never failed at various targets for the remainder of my playtime. I have a an electrical pylon that I can see from the rear of my house on a hill, I pinged that, result 1900yards!

I have now owned them for nearly twelve months and have NO complaints whatsover, I would buy another set tomorrow if I lost these. I was tempted by the Geovids initially, but cost was prohibitive, I am more than happy with the Laserguides.

Buy some, you won't have any complaints.
