GPO Introduces Its 8x32 and 10x32 RANGEGUIDE
GPO, USA is setting the bar in the laser rangefinding binocular category with the introduction of its new RANGEGUIDE™ 8x32 and 10x32s. The extremely small size and light weight for a premium rangefinding binocular is unprecedented in this industry yet the new RANGEGUIDE™ 8x32 and 10x32 binoculars boast exceptional edge-to-edge clarity and precise ranging on reflective targets out to nearly 1.75 miles. They are the most compact high quality premium rangefinding binoculars in the world.
Standing just 5.4 inches tall, one might assume that the GPO RANGEGUIDE™ is just a compact binocular, but it not only lives up to its optical performance; it can accurately range targets out to 3,062 yards with inclination/declination compensation, while tipping the scales at a mere 24.3 ounces. The magnesium frame is to thank for much of the light weight, but the small footprint of the internal laser rangefinding engine is the RANGEGUIDE's most prevalent feature.
The compact RANGEGUIDE™ features an eye-safe Class 1 laser for a lightning fast 0.25-second response time with true-range angle technology that calculates the proper distance to the target after measuring the angle to the target. Scan mode provides three readings per second via its orange OLED display that offers nine adjustable brightness levels and operates with manual or automatic brightness functionality. The RANGEGUIDE™ even measures ambient temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius, humidity, and air pressure to help with shot placement on long-range shots. The Class 1 laser will reliably range a tree at 1,093 yards and a deer out to 766 yards. The display provides both the line-of-sight distance and the user's choice of adjusted distance, angle, or temperature.
Coupled with the GPObrightTM high-transmission lens coatings, the RANGEGUIDE's double-HD laminated 32mm objective lenses are exceptionally beneficial for transmitting light in the twilight hours. These premium lenses maximize the brightness, sharpness, and resolution of the optical image which is not typical in a rangefinding binocular. The wide field of view is 405' and 306' (8x32 or 10x32) at 1,000 yards, and eye relief is 18mm or 16mm, respectively. The RANGEGUIDE™ also features a diopter focus and orange display focus adjustments on both left and right sides of the ocular tube. The RANGEGUIDE™ also utilizes GPO's premium cut-brass-geared focus-wheel system for a tight, consistent turning radius without any center focus wheel free play. The entire body is protected with an armor coating that makes it tough enough to use in any outdoor environment.
"GPO has transitioned to leading innovation in this industry. This product will make obsolete the hip-side handheld rangefinder because a hunter can now carry a functioning extremely compact rangefinder that is also an incredible binocular," said Mike Jensen, GPO, USA's owner and CEO. "It will change the equipment you carry."
