Knowing specific distances is critical for hunters and shooters, which makes the new Halo Z1000 laser rangefinder one to consider for the hunting vest or shooting bag.

Halo rangefinders offer quality components at an affordable price. I keep one in my vehicle at all times to practice with before hunting season or to set up targets for rifle and bow practice.

Halo Z1000 Laser Rangefinder

I think the latter is critical if you need to zero a scope at 100 yards or fire arrows at 20 and 30 yards. Setting up targets on guesswork or “30 steps” that may be inaccurate can lead to problems. Why guess when you can get it right?

Halo has a new rangefinder, the Z1000. Here is some info from the press release about it:

Delivering accuracy to +/- one yard, the Halo Z1000 provides impressive ranging out to 1,000 yards to reflective targets – plenty of distance for any hunting situation. Versatile 6x magnification provides bright, clear images in a range of lighting conditions, while an updated and easy-to-read display shows battery status, mode setting, numerical display and unit of measure in yards or meters.

Dual operating modes allow users of the new Halo Z1000 to range targets in two ways. Standard mode provides a precise distance reading with a single push of the button, while scan mode enables users to quickly range multiple targets without having to reactivate the laser for each target.

The Halo Z1000 features Angle Intelligence Technology that automatically detects and compensates for slope in both mode settings, providing an accurate, “shoots like” distance reading, regardless of changes in elevation between hunter and target.

The compact Z1000’s rugged and water resistant housing is both durable and functional. Its comfortable and ergonomically correct grip extends over the lens to minimize glare while increasing surface area for more reliable handling. A nylon strap and protective case are included.
