Nikon Introduces New LaserForce Rangefinder Binocular
Nikon Sport Optics has officially announced the introduction of its highly anticipated binocular with a built-in laser range finder. The new LaserForce rangefinder binocular combines superior optical quality, technologically enhanced features and a 100% backing with Nikon’s No-Fault Policy. This combination equates to a highly efficient must-have optic for results-driven hunters and shooters.
LaserForce features a laser capable of ranging distances from 10-1900 yards* and have the distances appear in a red OLED display. Distances are measured in increments of 0.1 m/yd for distances shorter than 100 m/yds and in increments of 1 m/yd for distances over 100 m/yds. The display offers a 4-step intensity adjustment, making it easily readable under any light conditions and against various objects. To compensate the effects that slope has on trajectory, LaserForce features ID (Incline/Decline) Technology. This gives users the option to have either Horizontal Distance (compensated) or Actual Distance displayed.
The 10×42 binocular component of the optic features ED (Extra-low dispersion) Glass. This superior glass corrects chromatic aberration that causes color fringing for high-resolution, contrast-rich images. Additionally, full multilayer-coated lenses and prisms and a reflective mirror coating that is applied on the mirror surface of roof prism unit, reveals pristine images. The long eye relief design combined with turn-and-slide rubber eyecups facilitate a custom fit for users’ individual viewing needs, even eyeglass wearers.
The overall design of LaserForce was engineered with the specific needs of hunters and shooters traveling the world’s most rugged types of terrain. The rubber armoring conforming to a metal die-cast body provides a highly durable exterior with a grip that is tailored to the texture and shape of the human hand. LaserForce is also completely waterproof/fogproof with a nitrogen-purged body that prevents fogging or molding inside the optical system even under significant changes in temperature.
With a MSRP of $1199.95, LaserForce is the single optic solution for serious hunters and shooters who mandate a high-quality binocular to acquire a distant target and a dependable laser to range the exact distance before taking the shot.
