The Sworo has a beam divergence of 2x4mils. If the Sworo is outperforming the TERRIPIN in any shape or form, you have a defective TERRIPIN. The Sworos are not in the same class.

Well, I just got off the phone with Carlock. He has a new candidate up his sleeve in the works. I won't spill the beans but he sure has my mind a thinking.

Re: vectronix rangefinder Terrapin

The day I hit 4700 yds with that thing, we were shooting something brand new. I'll come out of the closet in the near future.

Maybe you had it upside down and it actually said 1083.................
One of my shooting buddies kept complaining that his leica was not working kept saying the reading was "E85." I told him to try it again and he kept saying that all it would read was "E85" and them I looked and he had it upside down. The actual distance to the chuck was 583. He is known as and he always will be E85......

Randy,

If you or your neighbors need help with rockchucks this spring I can bring my Terrapin over and see if we can get it to read right .
