Troy,
Good stuff, but - you need to experience a Vector. The Swaro and Geovid would not come out of their cases...

And you need to experence a AN/GVS-5.

It'll make the others look like cat toys [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

And Ian... did you find out if your Sendero has the new trigger or the old one??

Re: Rangefinder review

Big sky: Sorry but I think your crazy. The swaro is unbeleiveable. Who would complain about getting a 3 second delay when the thing ranges to 2000 yards. The reason there is a delay is so it can charge the laser which is twice as powerful than the other lrf's you mentioned. What about glass? did the bushnell have glass as good as the swaro? Not trying to be argumentive just giving my .02.

I agree the Swarovski out performe the Bushnell,Leica, ETC. The read is esay to read under all conditions with proper eye allignment, that is the key. I have played with (owned) then Bushnell 1500, Lieca 1200 and they will not give ranges as far, or as reliabley as the Swarovski in less than ideal conditions. The Swaro will give readings when the other 2 will not...

I got it through my business.

About $12,000 with the charging unit.

10,000 meters under the worst conditions.

I have ranged a mountain at 4,000 meters, when visibility was 100 yds because of fog.

It's one of my best toys.

Re: Rangefinder review

Catshooter,
Keep forgetting to look at that rascally Remington, will do that shortly. Sure interested in the performance of your laser, sounds like the ultimate machine. We just did a hunt in Texas with two Vectors and they did a fantastic job on very far nilgai. Optics are so crisp and distance was not a factor, we got instant readings out to 1400+ in sunlight off critters.

I like the Bushnell and Leica about equally as far as my field use has been, but the Swaro will outdo both of them and has better optics. Have never done 2000 with my Swaro, lots of days it will not do 600 but that is how she goes. I usually hit vegetation or rocks way out there to draw my field sketchs or to memorize what I call fans (distances in 100 yd increments).

Re: Rangefinder review

Ian: If yours won't do 600 on any day sunny, rainy, cloudy then it's broke. That thing should range to at least a 1000 in any conditions as mine does and so does a few buddies.
