New Bushnell Elite 1600 ARC Laser Rangefinder
is Packed with a Host of New Features

Overland Park, Kan. — The new Bushnell Elite 1600 ARC Laser Rangefinder offers outstanding pinpoint precision, ruggedness and optical quality in a compact, easy-to-use device. The Elite 1600 ARC quickly and accurately reads distances from 5-1600 yards, with +/- one-yard accuracy.

Equipped with five modes of operation – standard scan mode, bow, rifle, BullsEye and Brush modes – the Elite 1600 ARC features 7x magnification and fully multi-coated optics. Built with a sturdy, rubber armored housing that’s designed to withstand rugged use, the device is 100 percent waterproof and fog proof. Bushnell has taken all-weather performance a step further with the patented RainGuard HD permanent lens coating, an anti-fog and water repellant coating that gives users a clear view in the unclearest of conditions.

The Bushnell Angle Range Compensation (ARC) technology calculates the hold for shooters based on the angle to the target. In addition, it is enhanced with Variable Sight-in Distance (VSITM ), allowing shooters to set the holdover/bullet drop information, available in either MOA or inches, and select between 100, 150, 200 and 300 yard sight-in distances for accurate information at the push of a button. VSI also provides users with shot angle information from -90 to +90 degrees.

The unit is equipped with the exclusive Vivid Display Technology, providing an easy to read display, even in low light conditions. Additional features include a twist-up eyecup for convenient and quick adjustments and a +/- diopter setting that allows users to adjust the display setting based on eyesight.

The Elite 1600 ARC Laser Rangefinder includes a storage case, neck strap and cleaning cloth, and is available for a suggested retail price of $499.99.

Purchase a Leica Rangefinder, Receive a Free Tripod Adapter

Allendale, NJ, June 1, 2011 — Receive a free tripod mounting adapter (a $99 value) when you purchase a Leica Rangemaster (model CRF 1000 or CRF 1600) compact laser rangefinder by July 31, 2011.

These handy, pocket-sized, compact monocular rangefinders are ideal for the hunter who wants to travel light without sacrificing performance. The CRF’s precision and reliability make it suitable for even the toughest of hunts, no matter the weather or terrain. The unusually bright optics boast a 7x magnification and integrated diopter compensation, ideal for low-light conditions when deer and other game animals are most active. The CRF offers a wide field of view, steady image and clear distance display leaving no doubt when it comes time to make the shot.

Unlike other premium rangefinders, the Rangemaster CRF is held vertically making it easier to use for both left-handers and right-handers. Weighing just 7.8 oz, it is extremely light and, thanks to its compact design, it sits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Even when you’re wearing gloves, you can easily hold and carry it. You’ll feel the difference.

As its name suggests, the Rangemaster CRF 1600 measures accurately up to 1,600 yards and is incomparable for delivering complete, accurate information essential for a perfect shot. For even greater confidence afield, this model offers an integrated ballistics computer with a choice of ballistic curves. In making its calculation, the system automatically adjusts for absolute pressure and temperature. You simply choose the appropriate ballistic curve, and the Rangemaster CRF 1600 shows you the precise terminal point. With its large 347 ft. field of vision and 7x magnification, it takes just 0.3 seconds to display the precise distance to any target.

The CRF 1000 measures accurately up to 1,000 yards. Its compact size and weight make it perfect for sticking in a backpack or hunting vest. The solid die-cast metal housing reinforced with light carbon fibre make it rugged and durable as well as precise. The CRF 1000′s excellent light transmission, wide field of view and impressive 7x magnification combine to deliver unsurpassed image quality, seen through the comfortable eyepiece.

Both models are switchable between yards and meters.

LEUPOLD Introduces RX-1000i Rangefinders with DNA(tm)

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Powered by an exclusive new rangefinder engine technology, Leupold‘s® RX®-1000i with DNA™ fits in a shirt pocket, yet offers hunters and shooters even more ranging precision and speed, along with an exceptionally bright target image.

DNA (Digitally eNhanced Accuracy), a next-generation Leupold technology, not only increases ranging speed, but makes the RX-1000i accurate to 1/10 of a yard against all background colors and textures. DNA also provides the RX-1000i with greater ranging capability against soft targets such as deer and trees.

A digital laser rangefinder, the compact RX-1000i with DNA measures only 3.8 inches long and weighs just 7.8 ounces. Its multicoated lens system produces a bright, pristine image, helping to transmit 80 percent of available light to the eye – three times greater than the light transmission of traditional Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) rangefinder models. Actual 6x magnification and a vivid red Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display also make it easier to spot and range game, even through dark timber and in low-light conditions.

The advanced RX-1000i TBR® with DNA models also offer Leupold’s exclusive True Ballistic Range® technology to help place shots with exceptional accuracy.

All RX-1000i units are weatherproof and rugged, with a tough aluminum casing and rubber armor. The RX-1000i with DNA has a black finish, while the TBR model is available in either gray/black or Mossy Oak® Break-Up® Infinity™ camouflage.

“Following on the heels of our successful RX-1000 introduction in 2009, the new RX-1000i with DNA models once again raise the bar on compact rangefinder function and performance, giving hunters and shooters a handy tool to easily spot targets and range them faster and more precisely than ever,” commented Pat Mundy, communications manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “These are truly innovative rangefinders that offer the best of all worlds: shirt pocket size for easy and convenient carrying, exceptionally rugged to withstand the hardest hunt, and superior ranging performance to help set up for an accurate shot.”

Maximum range of the RX-1000i with DNA is 1,000 yards (914.4 meters) on reflective targets. Minimum range is 6 yards (5.5 meters). In bow mode, maximum range is 125 yards (114.3 meters). Scan mode provides continuous range updates to help stay on target when tracking movement or scanning an area. Measurements are provided in yards or meters.

Other key features include:

* OLED display has variable brightness settings, making it easier to see in dim light than LCD displays typical of most other rangefinders
* fast-focus eyepiece with precision clicks
* redesigned Quick Set Menu provides on-screen prompts for easy use in the field
* selectable reticles – hunters can choose from three different reticles to best suit the terrain and game, from elk to small varmints
* fold-down rubber eyecups accommodate users with or without glasses
* convenient battery power indicator

The RX-1000i TBR with DNA units can automatically calculate the shot angle and provide the True Ballistic Range rather than the straight-line distance to the target. Optimized for most popular bow and rifle trajectories, the rifle settings also work in conjunction with Leupold’s Ballistic Aiming System® riflescope reticles for exceptionally accurate shot placement. Available only in the RX-1000i TBR, milliradian outputs can precisely match mil based reticles such as the Mil Dot, TMR and Horus Vision® offerings.

Each rangefinder comes with a Cordura® holster, lanyard, CR2 lithium camera battery and complete instructions. For more information, go to www.leupold.com or call 1-800-LEUPOLD.

Bushnell Laser Rangefinders

Indiana Bushnell, the world famous archaeologist and seeker of antiquities, stared into face of the Nazi. “Now, Dr. Bushnell. You will hand over the Fusion 1600 ARC rangefinder. I need its binocular/rangefinding capabilities.”

“Never,” Indiana muttered as he strained against the ropes that held him. It had been terrible to collect the sacred rangefinders of the ancient Optics tribe, and he wasn’t about to give them up. The Bushnell Elite 1500 was the same one that the army used, and the Bowhunter Chuck Adams Edition was ultra compact and lightweight, made especially for bows. A Nazi punched him in the stomach and he grunted.

The villagers had asked him to collect the rangefinders, to bring peace and prosperity back to their small hamlet. Their hunters used the Legend 1200 ARC since it offered bow, rifle, bullseye, brush and scan modes. Their golfers loved the Pro 1600 Slope Edition, since it told them exactly how to play. He had found the Yardage Pro laser rangefinder deep in the bowels of an ancient temple. He had quickly exchanged it for a bag of sand of equal weight, but he had been too slow.  Poisoned darts flew out of the walls, and he had been lucky to escape with his life.

The Nazi screamed in his face, “Tell me where the rangefinders are!” He nodded to a big Nazi who swung a nine iron. “Fritz over here needs to improve his golf game, and the Tour V2 Slope edition will give him a precise fit to the hand while delivering the exact distances he needs.”

Rikki Scott, noted American singer, had helped him get the Medalist range finder away from the temple goons who had hidden it in their evil shrine. The Medalist works quick with a natural feel to the eye, and was able to find any pin on the golf course. But then after he handed it to her, she dropped it into a pit full of alligators. If not for the white water rapids, and her screaming, the gators would have gotten him.

The Nazi swung the golf club and Indiana saw stars. He fell to the ground and he could feel his blood trickling on his neck. “Surely your life is worth more than a Sport 450 rangerfinder, Dr. Bushnell?” the Nazi muttered. “Bring the girl.”

A high pitched scream came to Indiana’s ears. They had caught Rikki.

The Nazis brought her to Indiana, and Fritz swung his club. “Wait,” Indiana said. “Let her go and I’ll tell you where they are.”

“See, I knew you could be reasonable.” The Nazi nodded and they released her. She ran up to Indiana and helped him to his feet. “I’m sorry, Indy,” she whispered.

He glared at the Nazi. “They’re in my boots, secret compartments.”

The Nazi pointed to Fritz, and he bent over to check out Indiana’s shoes. Indiana kicked him hard in the head, and then jumped up. Hands bound, he ran over the Nazi and yelled, “Come on,” to Rikki. They headed for the old rope suspension bridge.

“Can we make it, Indy?” Rikki said as she untied him.

He switched the Yardage Pro XGC  rangefinder to his eye. He didn’t need the 100 golf courses programmed into it, but its accuracy would help him judge the distance he’d have to cut the bridge ropes. “You bet we can make it. It will be just like riding those elephants.”
