Leica Sport Optics (Wetzlar, Germany) presents the first Leica rangefinder, Leica Rangemaster CRF 2800.COM, with integrated Bluetooth owing to new freedom in ballistics. Pioneering new standards in rangefinding, Leica Rangemaster CRF 2800.COM combines precise distance measurement, the Leica ABC ballistics system, intuitive operation, Bluetooth technology and a unique design.
Leica Hunting App, specially developed for Leica Rangemaster CRF 2800.COM, makes it possible to select the appropriate calibration for the gun. Leica’s own ABC ballistics program calculates the matching ballistic output values based on caliber, bullet type, trajectory and weight. This data is transmitted via Bluetooth to the Leica Rangemaster CRF 2800.COM, which calculates the exact ballistic distance and holdover correction, adjusting for temperature, air pressure and angle. Within mere fractions of a second, either the linear, equivalent horizontal range (EHR), the holdover, or the number of clicks are calculated and displayed on the riflescope.
“In combination with Leica’s app, which will be available for both Android and iOS smartphones at market launch, our Rangemaster CRF 2800.COM will be even easier and more convenient to use. During app development, we focused on intuitive operation and made sure the data is easy to read. This means the app can also be used to adjust standard CRF 2800.COM settings such as screen brightness and language. To cover the various needs in different countries, we have established access to Applied Ballistics software via a Kestrel wind meter,” says Julian Burczyk, Product Manager Rangefinding.
The revolutionary new Leica Rangemaster CRF 2800.COM is the first dedicated compact laser rangefinder capable of precise distance measurements up to 2,800 yards/2,600 meters and benefits from easy smartphone programming via Bluetooth and the new Leica Hunting App. This means Leica ABC® Ballistics can be customized directly through a smartphone as well as a Kestrel Elite weather meter.
Its rugged construction, low weight, and timeless and compact design make the CRF 2800.COM the ideal companion in every situation. The new Leica Rangemaster CRF 2800.COM will be available from February in Leica stores and specialist shops for €1095.
