After looking around a bit for a rangefinder, I decided to look at the Midland Gamefair.
There were 3 on offer, but my budget did not stretch to the Zeiss one. That left Deben/Hawke and the MTC one. There were all 3 models of Hawke on show and 2 did not work as advertised, not a great advert. Bushnell were not offered anywhere as far as I could see, and I was keen to get one at the show as I have been toying with the idea for a while.
I then stumbled on the MTC Optics stand and their very helpful staff, who showed me their new Rapier 2. It looks good and I walked away with one, they had a good show offer price on and did military discount too, bonus.
Early impressions are it is very good, I have had a few outings and plays, I'll report back in a few months as to how I get on with it. The OLED is much better than those on offer with LCD displays, although at the moment I cannot make it dimmer, even following the instructions on their website and in the instructions.
As to why it has a speed mode I have no idea, but the instructions say it is to keep the engineers happy!
Anyone else got one and have any thoughts?
