Roy, i've been following the newcon 2000 posts and have been impressed. they seem to be on par with the swaro or possibly able to range farther. every time someone posts about them, i usually ask some stupid questions!

    Hi roy,

    I was elk hunting this Friday-Saturday and I was ranging with Newcon 2000Pro at elk cows on full sunny day, with the sun in front not from behind.
    I ranged 1150yards, no further cows past that distance.
    I ranged trees behind them at 1250yards with sun in my eyes.
    Unfortunatedly no legal bulls around. So next time...

    Chris

    Hi Dave,
    Just go and borrow one pair of Newcon 2000Pro and use them for one day.
    Than let me know if you like them for the money and performance comparable with leica geovid, swaro 1200.
    You know your limits... Mine are somewhere 1k and for now this rangefinder works perfect past my limits. In time 1-2 years, with different equipment I can dream about more, and in that case I will need to upgrade my rangefinder with newcon 3000.



    Chris

    i'm in about the same boat, 1k is my limit unless i can take a sighter and get away with it. my bushnell will range to 1k with good conditions but man, when that sun gets bright, 6-700 is about tops depending on what you're bouncing off of. i have a military coincidence ? rangefinder that will go to 1650 but the accuracy falls off as you get past 1k. i have a really good place in W.Va. where i can shoot over 1k in both directions looking straight in on the opposite mountain. also have another place where we (Buffalo Bob) can go to 1400+. hopefully he can air out that 7AM at something. i'm gonna sit down there and wait for the turkeys to show up and see if that Edge will kill one of those. we need some frost to get the leaves off the trees!

    Have owned and used both the Swaro and Leica BRF. The Leica is much better to look through, but its weakness is hot, humid, hazy days at least in South Texas where it is a sub-tropical climate. In these conditions, it will not consistently range a dark colored cow beyond 300 or 400 - as in a Santa Gertrudis not an elk. The Swaro is the better LRF, but the Leica BRF is the better all around package. If you use the Swaro, take a good set of binos also.

    I took it to my shooting range here in Florida, 92 degrees 90% humidy, sunny and shdy both, ranged the berms and targets easily at 1000 yards, ranged some cows in the field, the ones I could hold steady on went to 1200, any further it was my limitations, with a tripod I'm sure it would have gone farthur.
