Looking to give up my G7 and Meopta glasses to an all in one rangefinder bino.
I have my sights down to the Zeiss 10x42 RF or the Sig BDX. I’m a sheep hunter so I want good glass as I spend a lot of time behind them. I also run Zeiss V-4 V-6 rifle scopes.
My question is what one do I go with im not worried about the price of Zeiss if they are really that good but if Sig is very close then I may go that route.
I am looking for some real reviews from you guys that have used either one of these two units or someone that has compared both in the real world.

I have the zeiss and don’t feel handicap with the glass. I haven’t looked through the Sig, but seriously doubt they are as good. The ballistics in the Zeiss have been great. I had 4 people look through 10x42 el and the Zeiss. It was a tie for which glass was better

Do they now pair with kestrel not that that’s a huge deal but would be nice.

Never looked through the zeiss but i recently bought the sig 3000. Glass seems great to me, but im upgrading from a $300 pair of 20yr old leupolds. Ive spent a couple hours looking through them at one time and they seemed nice.

They go up to 800 yards for quick range, dial, shoot scenarios and quickly connect to kestrel for anything past 800.

Check out the Vortex Fury AB...it will compute a solution as far as you can range and it doesn't need to link to a Kestrel. I believe it can if you want a wind solution, but that only shows the wind behavior at your location and assumes the wind is the same at the target as well, so not that valuable to me. The fact that it doesn't need to hook to another device was the biggest factor for me.
