New Laser Rangefinders from Vortex

Vortex Optics have released a new line of rangefinders. The new rangefinders come in three variants, the Crossfire HD, Diamondback HD and Viper HD. All three rangefinders feature horizontal component distance measurement for angle calculations when shooting up for down a mountain as well as regular line of sight mode.

Having used a Vortex rangefinder for the past four years I can say they are great value and come with a lifetime warranty. The main differences between the models is the maximum ranging distances and weight. The further the distance the optic can range, the heavier they become. The entire specification information for all of the new Vortex rangefinders can be found at the bottom of the article.
