There have been a few binocular rangefinders out on the market for a few years starting with the Leicas that were the first to hit the scene. However, that corner of the market was pretty anemic for many years. This year some of the other players stepped up to the plate by introducing new platforms Like Nikon’s Laser Force and the New Fury HD by Vortex. And guys like Bushnell made improvements to their existing models.
We have been planning this review fro quite some time now and finally got our hands on all the binosÂ our test officially starts July 14th and will go until late October early November with the results coming out late mid to late Nov. in time for you to add some goodies to your Hunting Christmas list.
Swaorski EL Range:
The EL Range offers the best combination of long-range optics and ergonomic design. The master craftsmanship underlying these binoculars is proven by razor-sharp images combined with precise range and angle measurement, as well as their perfectly balanced weight, allowing you to hold them steady. Other benefits of the new EL Range are the FieldPro package, which includes a new strap connector making it extremely simple to switch quickly and flexibly between strap and accessories and the new, distinctive measurement button.
