Laser Rangefinder Reviews Hunting, Golf, and Binocular Rangefinders

2019 - Leica Rangemaster CRF 2700-B & CRF 2400-R

Leica continues to expand and improve their Rangemaster CRF laser rangefinder line, recently adding two more models. The Leica CRF 2700-B and CRF  2400-R both add additional maximum ranging power over previous models; in addition, the CRF 2700-B also has added a MicroSD slot allowing the shooter greater customization of its built in ballistic program. Also of note, there have been some rather steep price reductions in street prices of previously introduced models such as the CRF 2000-B.

The Leica 2700-B looks a lot like any other Leica Rangefinder; however, this model includes some noteable improvements over previous models. First, and most obviously is its new increased ranging power which now is listed out to 2700 yards, note equivalent horizontal ranges (angle compensated ranges) are only available out to 1200 yards. Second, and of most interest of to us was the inclusion of a programmable MicroSD card which means the user can program the ballistic curve to more exactly match the trajectory of their specific load. Finally, this model also is capable of measuring both temperature and atmospheric pressure; and while this is a feature found on a few other Leica rangefinders is still very rare overall.

The Leica CRF 2400-R rangefinder is much like the CRF 1600-R model in that it lacks the ballistic capabliites and weather sensing capabilities of the CRF "B" series rangefinders. Like the other Rangemaster rangefinders, the CRF 2400-R features 7x magnification and weighs only 6.5 oz, making it a good choice for those that may need to take a long range shot but also have to carry the unit around all day. However, like the other CRF rangefinders its equivalent horizontal range (angle compensated readings) feature stops at 1200 yards which is more than enough for most all applications. However, with the recent price decrease in the CRF-2000-B models and its added ballistics capabilities and built in weather sensors; the CRF 2000-B might make more sense for many shooters and hunters.

The Leica 2000-B is basically the new and upgraded replacement of the popular Leica CRF 1600-B which while discontinued is still currently widely available. Besides the obvious upgrade in range this new model also has a few other improvements over the CRF-1600-B but is probably better thought of as an upgrade rather than an entirely new design. With the introduction of the newer models we have seen a dramatic price reduction in the CRF-2000-B, this model used to sell at $799 but as of this writing are currently widely available for around $499 online; and while it doesn't have the MicroSD card capability of the CRF-2700-B, you do get the ballistic and weather sensing features at steep discount.

The new Leica 1600-R is replacing the Leica 1000-R and is essentially a more powerful version of its predecessor. The 1600-R not only has more overall ranging power but is now also capable of giving angle compensated distances from 10 yards to 1200 yards which is a significant increase over the 1000-R models. Neither of these "R" model rangefinders are equipped with ballistic groups, and are not capable of measuring temperature or atmospheric pressure. Note, the Leica 1600-B will only give angle compensated ranges from 100-875 yards and that is only when a ballistic group is selected which it factors in when calculating horizontal distances. Therefore the "R" models are more suitable for those wishing to use their rangefinder for archery hunting as well because they calculate distance by line of sight distance and angle only and do so at ranges as close as 10 yards.  Read Full Review >>
