    Maybe my most anticipated purchases

    Have done some initial testing on trees and hard targets, but will get a few hours behind these over the weekend and let you all know about the glass.

    Yes, trees on an overcast afternoon. Keen to try on a bright, sunny day to see how much less they will measure.

    These are have a RRP in the US of $1400, but selling closer to US$1050 from most retailers there. Not sure about cost here, I got these in the US last week.

    Very few reviews on the internet at the moment, only one on YouTube that is not from Sig or the Shot Show.

    farken hell, I'd need to buy a new canon to go with those. I'm maxed out at around 1800 yard on my scope/reticle.

    what is the size of the aiming mark in moa (or mil) ? it's got to be hard holding them still enough at those ranges ?

    The 3417yds was a standing, unsupported measurement. The divirgance of the laser is pretty tight and a cone. There is spec on it, will check it out. The rest out is really fast!

    The cost is $2400 at my local. Confirmed it yesterday. They do look nice. Can you confirm they can give dope in the internal display like geovids? @Uplandstalker

    With the on board Applied Ballistics Ultralite is good to 800yd and gives both elevation and wind age in the reticle. The wind, temp, attitude etc is set in a app in phone and once synced to binos remains after the phone connection is lost/off. Suitable for hunting distances and it matches what I get from Shooter.

    Can syc up with Kestrel 5700 to give data to any distance measured.

    $2400 isnt a bad price when you compare to the Fury's that do not have a ballistic calculator.

    Glass is pretty good comparing them against Leica HD-B 10x42.
