Halo Optics has a new, hand-held ranger finder designed for accurate readings out to 1,000 yards.

I’ve never used one of these, but Halo products receive mostly good reviews on the web.

“Delivering accuracy to +/- one yard, the Halo ZIR10X automatically detects and compensates for elevation changes with AITM, or Angle Intelligence Technology, which results in the display of a true ballistic distance,” according to a recent press release.

“An updated, easy-to-read, color LCD readout with dusk/dawn display mode stands out against dark backgrounds, clearly displaying the reticle, battery status, mode setting, numerical display and unit of measure, which is selectable by yards or meters.”

The ZIR10X ranges targets in two modes. Standard mode provides a precise distance reading with a single push of the button, while the convenient Scan mode enables users to quickly range multiple targets without having to reactivate the laser in between, according to the release.

It features 6X magnification and is powered by one CR2 Lithium Ion battery (included).

The ZIR10X retails for $230.

    Ooo! I like the range and angle adjustment. I’ve needed this for my .50 cal for a long time! Seems like a good prices as well!

    Good price for an LRF monocular BUT does it have “brush” mode, rain/snow mode, and yards/meters options??

    I’ll stick with my Bushnell ARC 1 Mile 10X 42 mm. LRF binoculars good to 1,600 yards. They are the best LRF binos for the money ANYwhere.

    Does it work well in low-light situations? There are so many rangefinders that finding one that meets a wildlife photographer’s needs can be a little difficult. Can someone suggest a good 35mm rangefinder? It seems like Canon and ATN optics are the ultimate buys in this category for my budget.
