New Rangefinder From Halo

Halo1

Whether you’re a diehard hunter or dedicated to making increasingly greater long-range shots, you need a way to measure that distance. That means having a good rangefinder, preferably one that’s accurate and has straightforward features. New from Halo is a rangefinder that promises ease of use and more, the XRay Rangefinder.

The Halo XRay comes in two models, the Z9X and the Z6X. The company says it’s easy to use with a simple screen readout free of clutter. Thanks to AI Technology, the rangefinder itself factors in slopes between you and your target, making it easier to calculate shots. Perhaps the nicest feature, though, is its scan mode, which allows you to continually range game that’s on the move.

Halo’s new rangefinder has 6X magnification, a water-resistant body, and is accurate +/- 1 yard. The Z6X ranges out to 600 yards while the Z9X ranges out to 900 yards. Both models take one CR2 Lithium Ion battery and come with a carrying case. Halo covers these rangefinders with a 1-year warranty.

MSRP for the Z6X is listed at $164.99. MSRP for the Z9X is not yet listed. Take a look at the Z6X on Halo’s website at http://www.halooptics.com/range-finders/halo-xray-600-z6x.html

    That price seems very reasonable. One thing I’ve found my range finder very useful for is measuring out areas to sight in rifles over. A very convenient thing in hilly areas setting up an improvised range.

    Will it fit on an MA5B?

      Nah, it looks like it’s a poor-man’s version of the integral rangefinder/binocs on the MJOLNIR Mk V[B], Mk VI and GEN2.
