Re: range finders

Had the Newcon LRB 1500 SPD. Very unhappy. Now have the Swarovski Laser Guide and I am very happy. What the Swarovski gives is quality optics, ranging ability and excellent construction and design.

Re: range finders

I have used the leica and I was very happy with it. O am now using the Swaro and today I got back to back readings on a tree line at 1990 yards and then 1991 yards. I was very impressed. I still don't like the reticle as much as I do the leica but reading nearly 2000yds is enough for me to forget about the reticle.

Here's a link to Deutsche Optics. They have the Wildes for $499.

Re: range finders

Lerch,

Have you tested the Leica 10x42 Geovid BRF Binocular Laser Rangefinder? They say it is good for 1300 yards. I am wondering if it has updated electronics over the Leica 1200?

I think we need to change the forum from long range hunting to extreme long range. Long range is out to 1200 yards or so - you guys are now crossing the threshold to no limits!

Re: range finders

I'm not Lerch, but I can speak for him. No we have not tried the Geovids.

I told our Leica rep to bring his sample pair in if he ever got them. Regardless of how good the glass is or how nice it would be to have a range finder bino combo, 1300 yds just won't do it for us.

As soon as we get these AM tuned up, we're going to go for the 1500 yd pd and the Leica just won't cut it. We can range mounds all day long in any condition out to 1500-1700 yds w/the Swaro.
