Nikon Announces Monarch 3000 Stabilized Rangefinder

posted on January 14, 2018

Nikon has announced the release of its new Monarch 3000 Stabilized rangefinder, featuring the company’s optical image stabilization technology, an all-new red OLED display and 3,000-yard ranging capability.

The Monarch 3000 Stabilized reduces viewfinder vibrations by approximately 80 percent, while simultaneously aligning the viewed image with the laser. Beginning immediately when the unit is powered on, the company says this function assures faster, more successful “first-shot” measurements.

The red OLED reticle display allows for automatic or five selectable brightness levels for maximum contrast against all types of targets and backgrounds, and the new rangefinder’s 6X monocular features Nikon’s legendary multicoated optics, 18mm eye relief and a 7.5-inch field-of-view for quick target acquisition.

The Monarch 3000 Stabilized integrates the company’s ID (incline/decline) Technology, which takes the angle out of your shooting equation—up to +/- 89 degrees. The rangefinder also allows hunters the ability to select between first target priority mode and distant target priority mode. First target priority mode displays the distance of the closest subject, while distant target priority mode displays the range of the farthest target among a group of targets measured. The screen displays ranges speedy in .1-yard increments.

Nikon's Hyper Read technology displays all measurements in approximately 0.3 seconds—regardless of distance. By holding down the power button on the Monarch 3000 Stabilized, you are able to continuously measure across multiple targets for up to 8 seconds. 

With an MSRP of $419.95, the Monarch 3000 Stabilized is compact, lightweight, waterproof/fogproof and backed by Nikon’s 5-year warranty.
