Hunting and target shooting are two of the most thrilling sports with guns or bows. A rangefinder is one of the most crucial side-kicks of your weapon of choice. So, to shed some light on such a possible choice of such equipment, we present to you our Simmons Laser LRF 600 Rangefinder review. Popular among hunters and shooters on a tight budget, the Simmons Laser LRF 600 Rangefinder is a low-end rangefinder that has a decent view range and magnification capacity and can be much more comfortable and simpler to use.
Additionally, for a low-end rangefinder to be called ‘the best rangefinder’, the rangefinder should even use the materials that are low-cost. The Simmons laser rangefinder also uses batteries that are found more commonly and cheaper to buy. The look may not be as impressive as that of other competitors. But, durability and lightweight design compensate for the appearance of the product. Let's learn more about this rangefinder in our Simmons Laser LRF 600 Rangefinder review.
1. Laser-Accurate Reading
Using an infra-red laser light that is invisible and eye-safe, digital technology within the rangefinder calculates your distance from the target by calculating the time it takes for each pulse of the light to reflect back to the device.
This allows the rangefinder to read almost-perfect readings of distance, with small deviations of 1 yard, give or take. Plus, with the Tilt-Intelligence, a sort of angle compensation, adds more accuracy to the device.
2. The Optics
With a maximum view range of 600 yards and a magnification capacity of 4x with a fixed focus system, this rangefinder delivers crisp and vivid images of the target throughout its lowest to maximum range. With an eye relief at 20mm, the rangefinder offers a vast field of view for you. Additionally, its 320 feet at 1000 yards field of view gives you a generously broad look at your target, instead of giving you a tunnel vision.
However, it has no fully multicoated optics to gather light in the dark or low-lit environment.
3. LCD display
Featuring a square reticule in the middle of the LCD screen, the digital numbers show your distance from the target quite clearly, coming in black color. The battery reading is displayed on-screen as well.
4. Tough and Durable Body
Though it looks small, light and flimsy, the Simmons Laser LRF 600 Rangefinder is a rugged device. With ridges and stippling to give you a better grip. Besides, its O rings make it waterproof, allowing you to hunt or shoot even in rainfall.
As seen in our Simmons Laser LRF 600 Rangefinder review, the Simmons Laser LRF 600 Rangefinder hardly has a few minor negative points. It gives you readings of a significant range with a small margin of error, along with being exceptionally low-priced with and requiring only a single-click to start measuring the distance from the target. An essential hunting or target shooting equipment usable with rifles and bows.
In this review of ours, we hope that we have managed to give you a clearer idea of the Simmons laser rangefinder’s abilities. For those who expect to own the best range finder that is low-priced and low-end, yet have some magnificent features and is easy to use, this might be right for you.
