    Yep, there are better out there if better means price on the order of 3000 dollars and more.

    The one you mention should be good for the game you mentioned except when your only shot opportunity is really looooonnnnnnngggggg range.

    The Swaro is the best but it pales next to the Vector------the Vector is Fugly expensive...

    I believe the Leica Geovids are down to about $2,000. They would be a better rangefinder than the Swaro's.

    Look here:

    Leica Geovid 10x42 BRF-Y Binoculars 40029 Black New USA - eBay (item 120211575208 end time Jan-23-08 13:12:41 PST)

    Nice product but the product specifications did not list the divergence which is very important when ranging through trees and brush.

    Leica 1200crf. I think the only area the Swaro bests the Leica is the rated yards it will range, I think the Swaro will range a couple hundred yards farther (my Leica will range rocks and bare hills out to 1400 yards, haven't got it to read past that).
