Swarovski Optik North America has added a compact, lightweight, rangefinding binocular: the EL Range 32. Two years after the launch of the latest generation EL Range 42, Swarovski Optik is introducing a smaller, lighter 32mm version in a choice of 8X or 10X magnification. At only 24 ounces and 5.6-inches long, the EL Range 32 offers the choice of choosing the left- or right-side button for the measurement button, a handy feature when switching between right and left handed shooters. The opposite button will become the mode button. With ranging capability from 10 to 1500 yards, the EL Range 32 is an ideal lightweight companion for the firearm or bow hunter.

The 32 mm model with its new single-bridge design combines all the familiar EL Range features, such as HD optics for high-contrast images; a magnesium housing; a ballistic readout of rifle-scope click corrections in MOA or MRAD; scan mode; and Tracking Assistant. The EL Range can be configured according to individual preferences using the EL Range Configurator App and customized with the hunter’s own data for precise ranging. The FRR Forehead Rest has been further enhanced for maximum stability and is available as an accessory.

Capuano, director of communications for Swarovski Optik North America remarked, “Swarovski Optik is once again confirming its position as a market leader and trend setter in high-precision hunting optics. Outdoor consumers that demand the highest quality in optical and mechanical requirements now do it in a much more compact and lightweight way. In the field where every ounce counts, the New EL Range 32 delivers all the performance our consumers have come to expect and more.”
