SEEKING EXPERIENCES with MID LEVEL RANGEFINDERS

Not bino-finders, but rangefinders that start at $1200-$1500 and generally rated for 1400 yards non-reflective/2500 yards or more reflective. Presently I'm looking at three: G7 BR2, Pulse 360, and Vectronix PLRF. This represents quite an expenditure for me so I must exhaust every avenue to learn as much as possible before laying out the green. Know I appreciate your responses.

My apologies: I inadvertently initiated this thread in the Optics For Sale. Maybe I'll find out how that happened someday...

Was thinking the G7 was good out to about 2000 on reflective.

Re: SEEKING EXPERIENCES with MID LEVEL RANGEFINDERS

Thanks. Presently I'm pretty enthusiastic about the G7 approach: BR2, G7 Nightforce, and their ballistic turret. I just don't want to close both eyes and mind to other possibilities--hence my search for those whom experienced the aforementioned--and perhaps others I'm unaware of.

Leica and Swaro make a fine product for those ranges. Why do you want to pay almost
double for a product that may or may not be any better?

Re: SEEKING EXPERIENCES with MID LEVEL RANGEFINDERS

After owning the Leica 1600 (x2), Swaro's (x2), Bushnells, Leica 1200, Leica Geovid HD's, and others I can honestly say that none of them are even close to being in the same class with the Vectronix. The G7 is a big ?. I would go with the far and away best and "Known". Vectronix.

I recently called Laser Technology about the TruPulse 360 and I was told it has the same laser diode that the G7 and even the Bushnell ARC 1600. The only difference was that the firm ware is different. Laser Technology also has a TruPulse 200 which has the same laser as the other mentioned. The 200 and 360 are configured to read to the foot as apposed to the yard. I my self are in the same position you are in trying to find a good range finder.

I want to follow this thread .

the only thing I have to offer is the G7 is more than just a range finder . it is your weather station , your I- pad , your program , and your range finder . kind of an all in one . it would be nice to only carry one item , if it does everything well . Jim
