posted on April 13, 2012

Nikon Sport Optics has introduced a smaller laser rangefinder with all of the features needed by hunters and shooters. The Nikon PROSTAFF 5 is 10 percent smaller than its predecessors, while still providing fast and accurate readings.

The PROSTAFF 5 has new aggressive styling and palm-sized ergonomics to be an ideal balance of size and power. The 6x21 rangefinder features a large ocular lens, 18.3 mm of eye relief and .1 yard display. It also has an easy-to-read LCD that has a switchable LED feature to provide additional contrast for ranging in all lighting conditions. The waterproof and fog proof unit ranges distances out to 600 yards and is available for $229 in black and $249 in Realtree APG. For more information, go to
