Just in time for the fall hunting season a new laser rangefinder is being added to the HALO lineup. Knowing how far away game really is has far more to do with a successful hunt than bragging rights of the “he was *this* far away…” variety. Being aware of distance means a greater ability to calculate drift and drop, meaning you as the hunter are able to make a clean kill. When it comes to choosing a rangefinder, you need one that’s both accurate and capable of calculating more than just a single distance over a flat surface. The new Halo XL450 promises all that and more.
The Halo XL450 delivers the accuracy hunters need within +/- one yard out to distances up to 450 yards. That means this new laser rangefinder covers plenty of distance for the majority of hunters. In addition to ranging single objects while in standard mode the XL450 can also be used in Scan Mode to range multiple targets back to back. In Scan Mode there’s no need to reactivate the laser; readings are simply taken consecutively. Perhaps the rangefinder’s greatest feature is its AITM – Angle Intelligence Technology – which not only detects slopes but compensates for them for a truly accurate reading. The final “shoots like” AITM readout is provided in both modes. Other features include 6X magnification and an internal LCD display for the reticle, numerical display, battery level, and unit of measure.
Pete Angle, Plano Synergy Vice President of Marketing, had the following to say about the new Halo XL450 laser rangefinder: “A quality laser rangefinder is one of the most important conservation tools hunters can carry into the field. We have a responsibility to the animals we pursue to make a clean shot, and that responsibility begins with knowing the true range of any animal we set our sights on.”
The Halo XL450 comes with a one-year warranty and is powered by one CR2 lithium ion battery, which is included. MSRP $99.99.
