Leupold RX-1000 TBR

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OR Written on January 4, 2011
I used this rangefinder on a dall sheep hunt in Alaska where extreme shot angles can effect your true ballistic range. In this sense, this model really shines. It is very fast to acquire ranges, tells you the angle, the distance, and the actual flat line distance as related to the angle of shot.

I heard some trash talking by the guides towards these Leupold rangefinders. But I believe they were wrong. Guides always think they are de facto knowledge kings anyways. i liked this unit. Its optics are very good. And it is really fast. It has a lot of features too. In fact, a lot of these features were a little confusing. I just liked using it in a basic made where it gives you the angle and angled range. In that regard, I recommend this to others. I cannot comment on all the other options it has (like ballistic variables for certain cartridge ranges).

It is very small and very lightweight. I have a Swarovski rangefinder too. I love the Swaro. But it is big and heavy. Sometimes that helps when you are a little shaky as the extra weight helps steady your aim. But if you need to shave some weight and size, this Leupold is great.

This unit would also be very highly recommended to bowhunters. It has an archery mode for up-close ranges where, if you are in a treestand, would be particularly useful.

All-in-all I like this unit. I will continue to use it when hunting in the steeps. On that note, I did a lot of testing with the unit when I was hunting. It...

RX 1000 Rangefinder

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 8, 2010
After reading the rangefinders details in the manual, I was disappointed to learn that the 1000 yard range is for reflective targets. Trees are 600 yards and deer are 500 yards. I am still not exactly sure what the definition of a reflective target is. However, I do think Leupold should be more clear as to what the pracital range is for hunters and the game they will be hunting.
Pros: Compact, simple to set up and appears to be good quality
Cons: Range for deer are 500 yards not 1000...

Leupold RX-1000 TBR

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on October 19, 2009
This excellent unit would be even more AWESOME if it had a jitter stabilization feature - to take the cold shivers (buck fever?) out of the equation :-)
Pros: Small, light weight and easy to operate with gloves on. The TBR function is a must for bow and rifle hunters. The TBR is easy to set up as the manual explains.
Cons: No lens covers for when it's slung around your neck and not in the case....

Compact is truly compact and loaded w/ features

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on September 22, 2009
Outstanding small size but loaded with features. The True Ballistic Calculator provides immeasurable confidence boost, with ability to match trajectory by caliber of your rifle. There are several recticles to choose from. Battery life was excellent. The one problem was the bluish tint to the optic. The 6x magnification was good, but lowlight situations were a challenge, with visibility diminished by the dark hue.
Pros: small size, great true ballistic range calculator, multiple recticle choices
Cons: blue tint to viewfinder, made dawn & dusk a challenge...

Excellent Value for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on August 18, 2009
I purchased the RX1000 without there being many reviews on the internet. I was comparing it with some of leupolds other rangefinders. I decided to give them a call and they recommended the RX1000 over any of their other rangefinders. They state it really will hit 1000 yards unlike their other ones.

I found the setup very easy. It also comes with a waterproof mini reference card that you can keep in the nice nifty case it comes with. The case is magnetic so you can quickly slide out the VERY compact rangefinder without making a noise.

Now unto the ranging capability. First off I want to point out the optics are very good and extremely clear. I tested the unit out in my backyard. I havnt been able to take it out hunting yet but my backyard is a good enough.

I was able to range a green tree, by hand, at 890 yards away. It did take 3 tries to get that range but at least it was able to range off a tree.

At closer ranges it only took one try to get the correct distance.

My only gripe is Leupold did not make it fully waterproof only water resistant. Also the one year warranty is not enough in my eyes for this rangefinder. Any rangefinder should have at least a 3 year warranty
I would buy it again in a heartbeat and recommend it to any friend.

Pros: Very Compact, Accurate and really does go up to 1000 yards
Cons: Not Fully Waterproof...
Would recommend: Yes
