I don't have a lot of time behind this unit but so far it surpassed my expectations. As a rule soft targets only range for 1/2 of the advertised capabilities. This unit surpassed the 1/2 way mark. The farthest I have yet tried to range a human was 1134 and this unit instantly returned the measure. I was able to range an evergreen at 1545 and bare hillsides from 1032 to 1776 with no problems all hand held with instant results. I also was able to range a white building at 2014. Conditions were light haze and full sunlight. I give this unit a thumbs up!!
Ranges to 1000 meters consistently, with repeatable results. This is about half the advertised distance, however that seems to hold true for most brands. Nothing in this price range comes close, indeed most with true 1000 meter capability are almost double in cost. Cannot comment on durability, weather resistance, or battery life: time will tell. Takes 9v not cr2030, this is a big plus as they are much cheaper. Speed function not accurate.
Essential gear for the serious sportsman.
