Bushnell Announces New Laser Rangefinders

posted on April 26, 2019
Bushnell has released the Prime 1300 and 1700, Engage 1300 and 1700, and Nitro 1800 rangefinders. Each new rangefinder is claimed to  be engineered up to two times brighter than competitive models in its class. All have an entirely glass optical system, and feature an enhanced LCD display. Large objective lenses let light in, and fully multi-coated optics with ultra-wide band coating contribute to image clarity. Finally, Bushnell's EXO Barrier lens coating has been added for protection against the elements.  

In addition to these features, the new rangefinders also boast  slimmed down housings designed to balance evenly in the hand. Rubber over-mold ensures a positive grip while adding a layer of protection. All new models are also built with a proprietary algorithm intended to ensure quick, consistent readings, feature a two-lens system and 6X magnification.

For more information on any of these rangefinders, which MSRP for between $169.99-$349.99, please visit bushnell.com.
