Leupold Announces RX-FullDraw 5 Laser Rangefinder
The RX-FullDraw 5 combines the lightning-fast accuracy of Leupold’s DNA engine with the acclaimed Archer’s Advantage software. Using your personal ballistics, shot distance and angle compensation, the RX FullDraw 5 calculates laser-accurate ranges based on your gear. Loaded with features designed for the modern archer, like Flightpath technology, it takes the guesswork out of achieving the perfect shot. Flightpath uses the same ballistic solution to determine if your arrow will clear obstructions between you and your target.
Three new features set the RX-FullDraw 5 apart from its predecessor, the RX-FullDraw 4: An optional 20-yard pin solution for the Flightpath technology, a Rain/Fog mode and a lower minimum arrow velocity. The 20-yard pin solution makes it even easier for archers to make a clean shot at close range, when they’re often in thick brush or cover. The Rain/Fog mode (also known as Last Target mode) returns the last distance the laser reads bettering your chances of getting an accurate range on a target in rainy or foggy conditions. The lowered minimum on velocity inputs is meant to accommodate traditional archers and others who shoot lighter draw weights and thus lower velocities.
“Bows are custom-built to suit their owner, so your rangefinder needs to be, too,” said Eric Overstreet, Product Line Manager for Leupold. “The RX-FullDraw 4 was the first rangefinder to offer truly custom archery ballistics, and it was a game-changer if you needed to take a short-range, high-angle shot or extended-range, moderate-angle shot. The RX-FullDraw 5 builds upon that system and adds new features that allow it to stand alone as the absolute best archery rangefinder ever built.”
The RX-FullDraw 5 delivers exceptionally bright and clear images with a high light transmission OLED display. A 6x magnification makes ranging long distances easy, and the unit can hit 1,200 yards on reflective targets and 1,100 yards on trees. An easy-grip rubber armor and ergonomic housing design, meanwhile, helps the RX-FullDraw 5 stay secure in all conditions.
With an MSRP of $499.99, the RX-FullDraw 5 is 100 percent waterproof and extreme climate tested, ensuring the rugged reliability that Leupold products are known for.
