Leupold® Expands RX® Line of Compact Digital Laser Rangefinders

FullDraw Model Designed Specifically for Archers

 

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold® has expanded its RX® line of compact digital laser rangefinders for hunters and shooters with four new models: RX-800i, RX-800i TBR®, RX-600i and, designed specifically for archers, RX-FullDraw.

“These new rangefinders are ideal for the serious bowhunter,” commented Pat Mundy, senior marketing manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.  “Their compact size and rugged construction make for easy and reliable use in the field, and they deliver the precision and accuracy necessary to make the most difficult shots considerably less daunting.”

At just over four inches in length and weighing seven ounces or less, each model fits in a shirt pocket, yet is packed with features that can help users confirm desired targets, shoot with confidence and boost their effective range.  Each model features DNA (Digitally eNhanced Accuracy), Leupold’s exclusive next-generation rangefinder engine technology that delivers superior ranging speed and accuracy to within 1/2 yard out to 125 yards, regardless of target color.  In addition, DNA enhances ranging dependability against soft, non-reflective targets such as deer and trees.

The RX-800i, RX-800i TBR and RX-FullDraw  also offer Trophy Scale, a feature that allows hunters to determine if the animal’s rack measures up to the desired spread size.  With Trophy Scale, users can instantly and accurately judge the width and/or height of the target after setting the preferred baseline measurement (between 10 and 60 inches).

 To help ensure an accurate shot on that trophy animal, the RX-800i TBR and RX-FullDraw have Leupold’s proven True Ballistic Range® (TBR) technology.  These units can automatically calculate the shot angle and provide the True Ballistic Range rather than the straight-line distance to the target.  With Trig, a new function of the RX-800i TBR, users can also determine the height or length of objects.

The RX-FullDraw’s TBR provides archers with accurate aiming ranges to 175 yards regardless of angle, and delivers line-of-sight readings out to 800 yards.  Its 5x magnification delivers an exceptionally wide field of view, allowing users to quickly acquire a target at closer distances.

Each of the four new models has a multicoated lens system and a new Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) that produce an image up to three times brighter than competitive rangefinders.  Other key features common to all models include actual 6x magnification (5x for FullDraw), fast-focus eyepiece with precision clicks, intuitive quick set menu, three user-selectable aiming reticles, and fold-down rubber eyecups that can accommodate users with or without eyeglasses.  Long eye relief helps make the new RX rangefinders comfortable and easy to use for eyeglass wearers.

Maximum range on reflective targets for the RX-800i, RX-800i TBR and RX-FullDraw is 800 yards. Each model is waterproof and built to withstand the rigors of extensive field use.  Rugged and weatherproof, the affordable RX-600i has a maximum range of 600 yards.

Introducing the Next Generation of Rangefinders

Among the many variables accounted for when taking a shot, none are so vitally important as distance. Eliminate the guesswork and base your next shot off knowledge by using the next generation Nikon PROSTAFF® 5 Laser Rangefinder. It delivers fast and accurate readings with the consistency only found in a Nikon.

With its aggressive styling and palm sized ergonomics, the PROSTAFF 5 is the ideal balance of size and power. Boasting a 10% reduction in size from its predecessors, the PROSTAFF 5 is the easy to carry compact tool needed for dependable readings.

The 6×21 multicoated optical system boasts a huge ocular lens and optimized viewfinder display to provide the wide field of view needed for immediate subject acquisition and maximum ranging speed. With ranging precision out to 600 yards, the long eye relief of 18.3mm makes it great for use with or without eyeglasses. The incredible .1 yard display makes the PROSTAFF 5 stand out from the crowd.

A defining feature of the PROSTAFF 5 Laser Rangefinder is the ability to enhance the display when needed. An easy-to-read LCD offers maximum contrast against the viewed image, while the switchable LED feature adds additional contrast as neededfor ranging in virtually any light conditions. The waterproof/fogproof construction makes it the perfect companion for virtually any hunt.

MSRP for the PROSTAFF 5 is $229.95 for the black and $249.95 for the REALTREE APG.

Leica’s Rangemaster CRF 1600-B Rangefinder at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits

Stop by Leica’s booth at the 2012 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in St. Louis, Mo., April 12-15 to check out the new Rangemaster CRF 1600-B compact laser rangefinder.

Born from Leica’s 20-year commitment to continuous laser rangefinding innovation, the Rangemaster CRF 1600-B compact laser rangefinder boasts a unique integrated ballistics system that features three modes of application, 12 ballistic curves and three different zeroing ranges to deliver more accurate ballistics information than ever before. The new standards-setting Leica CRF 1600-B also features intuitive, easy-to-use controls.

At the heart of the CRF 1600-B is the innovative ABC™ (Advanced Ballistic Compensation) system, a high-precision integrated ballistics calculator that combines stored data with analysis of current ballistics parameters, and in a split second, delivers precise details of the required compensation for a point of impact (POI). The ABC™ system processes current ballistics parameters, including not only the measured distance, but also the incline, temperature and absolute air pressure to calculate projectile trajectory. The ABC™ ballistic system addresses the shooter’s needs with one program and delivers the relevant details with a simple push of a button.

For hunters who use classic reticles in their riflescopes, the Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600-B displays the hold-over value in centimeters or inches, in addition to the measured distance. For hunters using a reticle or turret, in which each graduation represents a specific distance, the read-out provides information on the horizontal distance, again factoring in the angle, temperature and absolute air pressure. Hunters using a MOA or mil graduated turret to dial for correction can also display the number of clicks required to properly adjust the POI. In this way, the CRF 1600-B can be perfectly adapted to deliver optimum results in every shooting situation, no matter the firearm and ammunition used.

Class-leading Leica optics technology enables shooters to clearly and vividly assess potential targets over long distances, and the large field of view facilitates rapid targed acquisition. The 7x magnification guarantees superb performance, even in low-light conditions. The CRF 1600-B measures distances from 10.9 yards to approximately 1,600 yards with complete precision in less than .9 seconds. The LED display features automatic brightness control for optimum visibility in all lighting conditions.

Weighing only 8.1 oz, the ergonomic and compact CRF 1600-B fits comfortably in either hand and its carbon-reinforced housing and magnesium chassis ensure that it will stand up to whatever the hunter or Mother Nature dishes out. The hydrophobic AquaDura® lens coating provides additional protection against dirt and water.

Built-in diopter compensation and a special rubber eyecup make the Rangemaster ideal for those with glasses.

The Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600-B will be available from authorized Leica dealers beginning June 2012.

Webyshops Witnesses a Winning 2011

ARLINGTON, TX, February 10, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ — 2011 Witnessed Webyshops.com having a record setting year. While every company works to improve sales each year, Webyshops.com saw their formula of outstanding customer service, quick shipping, wide selection of quality products, knowledgeable associates and low prices push their sales to quadruple 2010′s sales. This sales growth even surpassed anticipated forecast by twenty percent. Webyshops doesn’t anticipate the records to stop with the 2011 year, they are trending to double sales again in 2012.

“2011 was a pivotal year for us. We had to prove to our vendors that we knew what we were talking about when we asked them for support in terms of financing and inventory. We also had to prove to our customers that we could deliver the level of service they expect from the likes of Zappos and Amazon. We even joked internally, that we ARE the Zappos of the outdoor industry. In the end, it was through patronage of our customers, support of our vendors and relentless dedication to each and every customer by our small, but committed crew that we were able to exceed all the goals we set for ourselves in spite of tough economic and retail conditions. We look forward to another great year in 2012, as we build upon the projects that were launched last year,” states Mikhail Orlov, Webyshops.com.

Sales weren’t the only thing that showed tremendous growth. The Webyshops.com team also grew to double its original size. The team growth hasn’t stopped yet. In order to keep up with the sales growth, staff will also increase at least twenty-five percent in 2012. Another key factor of Webyshops success is the positive encouragement for both professional and personal growth.

Customer Service Quarterback, Renee affirms this stating, “I especially like working with the customers and my coworkers. I find selling scopes both interesting and challenging. I, also, like the way we can grow with the company. Starting from the ground up is a good feeling.”

Kerri, Webyshops’ Warehouse Warrior affirms Renee”s statement “I started here about 4 months ago, didn’t have a clue about the business the patience of the people that work here is phenomenal.” She went on to say, “The warehouse has blown up with inventory over the last month business is good.”
