Overland Park, Kan. – Bushnell, an industry-leader in high performance sports optics for more than 65 years, was awarded the Great Buy Award for the G-Force DX laser rangefinder in the 2014Outdoor Life Rangefinder Gear Test.
For the gear test, Outdoor Life evaluated six laser rangefinders and scored the performance of each device based on the following criteria: accuracy, clarity, edge clarity, speed, display, low light performance and ease of use. The G-Force DX received a four-star rating and was noted for its ranging speed and overall value for the price.
The G-Force DX also scored highly for its crisp perceived image and clear resolution in low-light scenarios. Testers commented on the G-Force DX’s abundant features, such as Angle Range Compensation (ARC™) technology, and the rangefinder’s ability to be mounted on a tripod for rock-steady, long-distance ranging.
Featuring a second generation E.S.P. (Extreme Speed Precision) processor, the G-Force DX combines range finding capabilities out to 1,300 yards with unprecedented precision and speed. The device offers ½-yard accuracy and 1/10 yard display precision from 5-125 yards and +/- one-yard accuracy beyond 125 yards.
Incorporating two patented Bushnell technologies – Vivid Display Technology (VDT™) and ARC – the G-Force DX provides unmatched ranging capabilities. The redesigned VDT features four brightness levels and a 15 percent brighter display while ARC technology accounts for terrain when calculating the distance to target, giving users precise shot angle information (from -90 to +90 degrees) and true horizontal distance in bow mode or precise holdover data (MOA, Mils or inches) in rifle mode.
Protected by a machined metal housing, durable rubber armor and patented RainGuard HD technology, the G-Force DX is ready for the toughest conditions. The G-Force DX has a built-in tripod mount and includes a neck strap, carrying case and CR123 battery.
The G-Force DX is available in gun metal grey and Realtree Xtra for minimum advertised prices (MAP) of $399.00 and $419.00, respectively
