Rangefinder that compensates for slopes

Postby Scot on Tue Nov 21, 2006 9:24 am

I am interested in a rangefinder that compensates for slope. I am interested in someone giving me a suggestion on my previous request. I need a rangefinder that compensates for slope and has built in targeting mode for rain and reflective. Also one that has continuous scan targeting. Is small and durable. I am looking for a rangefinder that is just like the Bushnell Trophy Laser Rangefinder Camo Mossy Oak Break Up Coating - 202020. My question is, does this rangefinder compensate for slope, and if not, do you have one similar to it that does compensate for slope. I do not need more yardage range than this one offers. I also need it to be durable in cold weather, possibly down to zero farenheit. The opticslogic only works down to 32 degrees F. The rangefinder I need will be used to judge yardage for archery hunting from a tree stand over hilly terrain. I need it to be accurate withing +/- 1yd. and accurate even when shooting up or downhill. Can you help?

Thank you for your time!

Hi

The Bushnell Trophy does not have the slope feature, but the Bushnell Elite 1500 ARC Angle Range Compensation Mossy Oak Laser Rangefinder does and it also has all the other features you list and more. it is as good as it gets in a hunting LRF.

The only other hunting LRFs we carry with tilt compensation are the Leupold RX-II, Leupold RX-III and Leupold RX-IV. However, these are heavy into ballistic software programs and are really overkill for you application. Screens and menus are also considerably harder to navigate and read than the Elite.
