My vote is Lecia either way but just wanted to check and see which model
your really talking about.
I've owned a Leupold RX-IV for a
little over two weeks and it did not fit my needs. I know your
interested in the RX-1000 but I believe the IV's are supposed to be a
step up from the RX-1000. In my experience I could not get it range
past 600+ yards if even that. I called and worked with Leupold CS via
cell phone while at our deer camp; they had
me turn off all the features just to be able to reach out to beyond 500
yards. The TBR didn't seem to work as advertised either. Bottom line it
was too much work to try unsuccessfully to achieve what Leupold
advertise. I had a second device sent to me and had the same issues.
spent the extra money on a Lecia CRF1200 and it was one of the better
hunting gear choices I've made in quite awhile. It's small, light, fast,
and accurate. It's advertised to reach out to 1200 yards and with a
steady hand I can reach out beyond 1300+ yards. The red LED display is
very easy to read. I can go on and on but I
think you get the idea.
If it's the LRF1200 your looking at I'm
sure it's very good too but I believe it's older and a little bulkier
than the CRF model(s).
