    Thanks KIWI.....I sounds like a good instrument overall but next to useless as far as the ballistic curve is concerned. I can use Kentucky elevation and hit stuff at those distances :rolleyes:

    The first 50 were sent to 7 vendors. The next batch will not be until after 9/9/10. Most vendors don't have any and are only taking orders.

    I love mine, but don't use the ballistic curves. I've got custom dials on my rifles, and theres no way one of the curves can match the accuracy of a custom dial. I just want the range and angle.

    I can tell you the glass is great, it's about the size of a wallet. super light and ranges very fast.

    I love mine also, thanks to Doug at camera land great to deal with. I sent a email in may when they talked about them coming out in aug. that i wanted the first ones in. Doug actualy called me and asked if i still wanted one, i thought that was class. It ranges so much faster love the degree option. I actually ranged out to 1940 already.
