Re: Thoughts on New EL Range bino
I was able to take one of the 10x42 El ranges home today. My initial impression after a few hours of ranging...
Capable range finder with reasonable glass. Id compare the glass to old el's.
I do have to state that i feel let down by the range finder. It was able to range many reflective targets to almost 2000 yards. Remarkably there was not a single target that the el's would range that my leica 1600 could not also read. My 1600 also read a higher percentage of the time, especially on hard to read targets. There were multiple targets that the 1600 could read between 1500 and 2000 yards that the el's weas not able to hit even with many attempts.
success/attempts normal targets
success/attempts on difficult targets (4 foot stack of black tires, black cow)
I will reserve my final judgement till Wednesday when i spend an entire day ranging and documenting deer, antelope, and elk on the prairie. I will install new batteries in both units and document results for all....
