I’ve had this for about a year now, ever since I first got the impact it never gave me solid readings, I’d be at the archery range and hit the 40 yard target and I’d get 39,41,40 at 40 every time it was different shooting in the back yard it does the same. 39,41,40 I’d call it 40. I have a black target but have trouble seeing the center so I pin a bullseye I print out. On the paper is 4 yards off than the black target it’s pinned to, I put my glen del next to the black target and am getting 3 different readings between the black target the glen del buck and the paper at the same distance. Shot high at 50 today got my arrow walked back ranged 50 and sent one to god knows where, I walked 4 yards forward and was still reading 49-51. My last few shots of the day at 40 I was reading 37-43 yards it’s all over the place. I’m leaving for a hunt in five days and lost all my confidence with this product. I just ordered a leupold and had it overnighted because there’s no way I’m getting it back from warranty in a week.
I love this range finder! I’ve taken it to the range several times and it seems to be very accurate and it’s very helpful at the bow range as a new hunter. Along with the VIP warranty this range finders price is extremely reasonable for its capability.
This featured-packed rangefinder is a great fit for the New England hunter. The optic is clear. Both in single and continuous ranging mode it is accurate beyond most shot distances NE hunters will encounter. I have it perform well in a variety of temperatures and weather conditions.
Only been hunting for a few years now and trying to keep things economical. This range finder is absolutely awesome. Very affordable, company is based in WI like myself and from what I've seen an unbeatable warranty that I hopefully never have to test. A 6.5 creedmore and an AR are in my not too distant future and both will be getting vortex optics.
Bought this rangefinder on sale. Considering the price, and warrenty, I can’t imagine i’ll need to buy a more expensive RF. I’m only using this for hunting and target practice. I’ll never need to range an animal outside 850y. Seems to be easy to use and well constructed. I like how light weight it is. So far I don’t that not having the reticle iluminated will be a big deal, especially since i’ll be using it during the day.
Just got this rangefinder for Christmas from my wife. Have had it out a few times now and it seems to work just as Vortex says it does. If you are a big game hunter in more open country, you might want to consider one of the Ranger models, only due to the fact that sometimes it's nice to get a feel for the distance some of those much further off animals may be and how much distance you need to close to make an ethical shot. But I have enjoyed using this Impact 850 model so far.
