Impact ® Laser Rangefinder

Simply put, with the high-performing Impact® 850 and its economical price tag, you don't have an excuse to head afield without a laser rangefinder. Accurately ranges reflective targets to 850 yards, providing critical distance readings hunters and shooters can rely on. Range targets down to 10 yards when things get up close and personal.

6X magnification brings subjects in for a closer look and more accurate ranging. Fully multi-coated optics enhance light transmission for optimal performance in low-light settings. Provides angle-compensated HCD (Horizontal Component Distance) and LOS (Line of Sight) readings to match user preference. Can be set to read in yards or meters. The black LCD display boldly stands off against subjects during the moment of truth – and a fast readout ensures you get the range in time to capitalize on the opportunity.

Runs on a single, long-lasting, easy-to-find, CR2 battery.

HCD Corrected Shoot-To Range

The Impact 850 uses HCD (Horizontal Component Distance) angle-compensated ranging technology to give bow and rifle shooters the critical distance data needed to make accurate shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Budget Hunters Recently ordered the Impact after looking through it at work one day. I love the readout (even though it isn't red), how accurate it is and how quick it displays. For someone looking for quality at a decent price this is where to go. I'm excited to keep using it this season. The only thing I would've loved to see was the pocket clip like the Rangers have, everything else is awesome for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says. Great rangefinder for 90% of hunters. The 400 yd rating on "deer sized" objects is spot on and plenty for the vast majority of shooters. Yes, you may need more range for precise shots above this range in extreme western situations for an excellent marksman. If you hunt anywhere from the Mississippi River valley east, you likely will never need more range than this. The one thing that may hang you up if you have less than great eyesight is that the feedback is all displayed in black rather than illuminayed red. This can make it somewhat difficult to see and I can see this being a problem for someone who struggles with vision in low light scenarios. If that was added as a feature I'd be all over a 5 star rating here. That said, this is a "budget" range finder that brings outstanding quality to a very competitive MSRP and a real world prices often WELL south of 0. That price for an angle compensating rangefinder that is demonstrably accurate is fantastic. If you can handle the black display and don't need the longer ranges, this may well be the place to look.

Does this range finder work in light fog, ran ,or snow? 

Asked by: Vaughn
Rangefinders are prone to environmental interference, so it depends on the severity of the conditions. It can work in light fog, rain, and snow, however at times depending on the intensity of those situations there are times where these environmental factors will prevent you from getting a good reading.
