Rangefinder. Friday , May 25th , 2018 - 17:49:09 PM
Last, it should be noted that all laser rangefinders feature a reticle (the crosshair or other type of aiming point you see when looking through your rangefinder). However, many rangefinders use LCD readouts with reticles that appear as black lines that you superimpose over the target you want to range but, this type of reticle if often difficult to distinguish against a dark background or in low light conditions. Therefore, other rangefinders have illuminated, LED, reticles as well. However, even though the brightness of the LEDs is adjustable (sometimes automatically), in bright conditions, it can be overwhelmed by the ambient light and thus it cannot be seen even at the highest settings and yet, in the evening when your eyes are accustomed to the lower light levels, the reticle is often so bright that it impairt your night vision even when set to the lowest settings. Also, this same issue pertains to the other information displayed on your screen such as yardage numbers and modes. Therefore, the best option is to choose a rangefinder with a backlight screen which gives you the capability to view your information in all light conditions.
However, a laser rangefinder has its demerits. You should have a steady hand as the laser should be accurately aimed at the target although it cane easily be overcome with practice. Also, what you cannot see, you cannot measure so much so that hills are the Achilles’ heel of the laser rangefinder. Plus, you have to deal with limited features that are standard on the GPS models.
So, if you are an avid bow hunter but do not yet own a laser rangefinder, then I challenge you to take my little test mentioned above and, I believe that if you will do so, you will find that you too can greatly benefit from owning a laser rangefinder. In addition, while there are numerous different makes and models of laser rangefinders on the market today, you should definitely take the time to search out the few models that are specifically designed for archers since they incorporate features such as "Clearshot" by Bushnell that are clearly designed to enhance the units usefulness to bow hunters.
