I only carry the Vectronix now, but have a Leica CRF for back up in the truck. The reason I have owned so many was the first few Swaro's had the battery freeze up issue. Then I had one for my son which we have sold and replaced with a Leica CRF. For a while I was buying them to compare looking for a superior unit among the swaros. Yes some will range farther than others, not all RF's are created equal until you get to the PLRF10. I bought 5 of those used and they all were equal and ranged awesome.

Don't take all this wrong, the Swaro hasa 6' beam at 1000 yards so it is probably only about 4' at 800 yds. Just watch it on the flat ground and especially in sage brush, corn stalks, etc. Get a rest!!! You wouln't shoot a rifle off hand to 800 yards expecting to hit 2' either side of the target , right? Or 1000 yards expection to hit 3' either side? This is why a rest is so important. Get it solid and get 3 consecutive matching numbers. Then I would say you are good to go.

Paul,,,, This is coming from a guy that ownes how many Chronographs and uses them all at once???

Re: Swaro Rangefinder Feedback

I got my CRF 1600 late yesterday and had just enough time to try it out on some allready know distances before dark. It was very accurate and I was pleased with the very compact size. I will post more after I play with it some more today. Thanks again Broz for leading me in the right direction.

Re: Swaro Rangefinder Feedback

Update: Went out this morning and played with the unit and it gave me good repeatable read outs on all kinds of objects at various distances and it is a very cloudy day with off and on rain. The longest I got was a white end of ahouse at 1606yrds. I think I got a good one.
