RF Binoculars Update

Post by MM »

Currently I have a set of Leica 8x42 RF Bono’s and I am thinking about updating them. My set only shows range in yards that’s it. I am thinking that having the true ballistic range compensating for the angle would be a good thing to have. I am not sure I would use a lot of the other complicated stuff built into some models out there and would even be happy picking up a used set. My must haves are:
Able to give a distance down to 10 yards.
Accurate of course at longer distances
10x
True ballistic range
Quality optics
I want to stick with Leica, Zeiss and Swarovski and am hoping I can get some field experience from you all using these various models. I looked through the Swarovski but I can’t get past those humps on the bottom. Am I making a big deal over nothing? My assumption is that they would be uncomfortable wearing all day.
Thanks
Matt

The Swaro 42 with RF are well and truly outdated.

Until Swaro update their RF bins, restrict your choice to the current Zeiss or the current Leica, both of which are up to date in every way.

Readings to 10 yards - cross out swarovski of your list. They are also none HD and do not have swarovision.

Get the Zeiss or Leica

Measure it, when it’s on the deck

The Geovids hd-b are the way to go, I compared them to the swaros and zeiss and I like the form and the measuring ballistic functions the best.

One more vote for the Leica's. The ballistic program is top notch and the glass is great.
