Leica Rangemaster CRF 1000-R Wins Outdoor Life’s 2014 Editor’s Choice Award


Leica Sport Optics is honored to receive Outdoor Life’s 2014 Editor’s Choice Award for the CRF 1000-R rangefinder.

Outdoor Life editors tested six of the most feature-packed units to see which are most fieldworthy, and the Leica Rangemaster CRF 1000-R 7x24mm “bested the field in nearly every category.”

According to the gear test review, “It won the clarity test hands down; our test target was plainly visible beyond 400 yards. In low-light conditions, the Leica was brighter than all other models both in open country and dark woods. It returned distance readings in just over half a second, by far the fastest in the test.”

Andrew McKean, editor of Outdoor Life said, “Outdoor Life’s ratings give you the unbiased and accurate truth on outdoor gear. Products are thoroughly tested, and winning items earn the title based exclusively on the hard data and scores. So when we say a particular item is the best, you can take that to the bank.”

For each issue of Outdoor Life, the magazine’s experts go in-depth to provide readers with accurate and unbiased assessments on hunting, fishing, and outdoor-related gear. Outdoor Life’s experts put gear through rigorous tests and keep an exhaustive list of scores detailing each product’s results across multiple categories. Once the scores are tallied, the top product is deemed an Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice Award winner. Going one step further, Outdoor Life also considers the costs of the products to determine which offer the most bang for the buck.

The Rangemaster CRF 1000-R laser rangefinder provides both gun and bowhunters with fast, accessible, and above all, precise measurements to the target in a simple and efficient format.

Designed for the everyday hunter, the CRF 1000-R laser rangefinder gives hunters the ability to determine Equivalent Horizontal Range (EHR) using the rifleman’s rule from 10 to 600 yards.
