Part two of our Bushnell Video Interview from SHOT Show focuses on a really innovative and award-winning new product, the Bushnell Fusion 1600 ARC Rangefinder Binocular. There were two models on display, separated by slightly different magnifications. The 10X42mm Fusion 1600s were released first, and they won the ‘Optic of the Year Award’ from the NRA, and they are a fantastic piece of technology.
What makes the Fusion 1600s so cool is that they help free up some space in your pack when you’re out hunting. A laser rangefinder and a pair of binoculars are indispensable tools for any hunter these days. But carrying a quality pair of binoculars and a really good laser rangefinder can be bulky and heavy. You want your pack as light as possible. The idea of combining these two great tools into one package is great, but Bushnell took it a step further. They didn’t just want average binoculars or a decent rangefinder. The glass in the Fusion 1600 is very high quality. In fact, it’s about on par with the glass in the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD Binoculars! WOW!
When you combine that glass with a rangefinder that can get accurate readings out to 1600 yards, or as Bushnell’s Jordan Vermillion says possibly even as far as 1800 yards, then you really have something special. I’m very impressed by the Fusion 1600s.
Since they were such a success, Bushnell recently added a second model, this time a 12x50mm, so you get even more magnification and an even brighter image. You can’t go wrong with Bushnell. They’re always thinking about how to make your hunting trips more successful.
