The new Leica Sport Optics CRF 1600-R rangefinder has set its sights high, establishing its leadership in range measuring instruments for hunters.
The new rangefinder in fact measures a real range of up to 1,425 metres and ballistic compensated ranges up to 1,100 metres, new records for hunting rangefinders, and it raises the bar even higher as the best in its category for those who want high performance from an instrument that is also easy to use.
On the outside, it looks exactly the same as its predecessor, the 1000-R, and the other compact Leica rangefinder, the 1600-B, which has more ballistic functions and a higher number of clicks for the turret and reticle elevation.
The biggest difference you will find on the CRF 1600-R is its new rangefinder power, which on the previous model reached 900 m with ballistic compensation up to 550 metres.
Leica confirms its position as the most innovative company producing state-of-the-art range finding instruments for hunting, with a unique selection of rangefinder binoculars for hunters. The flagship 3 Geovid HD-B (8x42, 10x42, 8x56) offers truly revolutionary performance and fully customisable ballistic functions to suit your own personal ammo.
For those who only want to measure the ballistic compensated range, the same products are marketed under the name Geovid HD-R. The same function can be found in 4 models (there is even a 15x56) in the Geovid-R series, a high definition instrument that sells at an extremely competitive price.
From 1 July, you will be able to buy the new CRF 1600-R from any authorised dealer at a price (VAT inclusive) of €605, the same price as the CRF 1000-R, which will be withdrawn from production.
