Re: Swaro EL Rangfinder Binocs - User Opinions
Having used these continually hunting for almost a year now, I have this to say about the pair I have. They are the best rangefinding bino combo on the market for a serious longrange walkabout hunter. They have superb optics, a rangefinder that will range to typical hunting targets/trees etc to over 2000 yards in lowish light, and 1800 yards in bright light. I have both Geovids and Zeiss RF's, and the EL's are in another league above. Their inbuilt TBR feature works superbly, and we've taken large Red stags and Wapiti (Elk) bulls to 1000 yards with them so far, and all sorts of very steep angles over 30 degrees, and they've been right on the money. I have taken other female deer to 1200 yards with them.
The Geovids hate light cloud and light rain, and neither the Geovids nor the Zeiss RF's have the TBR feature
I say again, comparing all three top European rangefinder/bino combos, the EL's are in another league. There are more powerful tactical type units, but none more suitable to the serious hunter.
Now I'm not going to get into an argument with anyone, but these are my thoughts on the pair I have,
