Last night I took a better look at Laser Technology's Pulse offering (s) and came to the conclusion that the G7 BR2
starts life as a 360, has his tonsils and adenoids removed--along with a blue tooth--and receives a brain transplant in their stead. Take a look; you may word it differently, but hey, you know those leopards and their spots... Seems like I remember Aaron saying something about an affiliation with Laser Technologies in his video on this site.
Be that as it may I have no idea--yet--how much the Pulse 200, 360, or 360R and their variations cost. Looking further into Vectronix, past the PLRF 10 and 15, there's the Moskito
(not to worry about the spelling--when you pay for them they still bite) and the Vector
Binocular/rangefinder; the latter two have some variants also. The binos, in model 23, have an advertised range of 25,000 meters--the lesser model 21 merely reaches 18,000 meters. So my Red Ryder and I would be well accommodated with the latter, but really need the 23 when using the Benjamin--or Whamo... How
many thousand dollars?
There's much considered dialogue focused on what some professionals might call recreational or entry-level rangefinders on this site by well-meaning informed people. However when it's all said and done we too often get what we pay for--if we're lucky--and in this case I'd just as soon pay a third to half again to get a rangefinder that delivers consistently and under all--wishfully--conditions before I cut loose on a 3/4 ton animal or half that that fights back with an instrument that costs $10K supported by $100K in investments for travel, lodging, R&D, insurance, divorce (s) & alimony (s), etc. I left out the booze and tobacco--must keep some form of normalcy in this compendium... Juxtaposed against all the prior expenditures--and let us not forget our time (once spent gone forever)--$1599 doesn't really seem like much. But then if you take in less than that a week or month
No, I don't work for any company that sells rangefinders; in fact I don't work for anybody these days, but of all the rangefinders I've looked at only three are long-range hunter dedicated. Purpose built. No, it doesn't mean something else won't work, but it surely implies intent
and in that it's forums like this with people like you that force those three to deliver the goods. And they have. However, they are limited by the constraints of reality; one just can't, after all, make a rangefinder out of a sow's ear, three orangutans and a chimp workforce, a steak knife and splitting maul for tools. The G7 BR2 steadily rates higher.
OK so you know I haven't had my breakfast yet and it's a couple hours yet before light--I should just go back to bed after this loquacious discourse. But before I go anywhere this is fun, functional, and informative; lets keep it going.
