Nikon Launches Vibration-Reducing Laser Rangefinder

Nikon Sport Optics has announced the release of its latest laser rangefinder—which features a never-before-seen caveat. The Monarch 7i VR is being hailed as the industry's first laser rangefinder to feature a vibration reduction system.

What's that mean? Well, it features Nikon's new optical VR (vibration reduction) system, which is designed to reduce the effect of external vibrations caused by unnecessary hand movements while ranging distant objects. For hunters, it should help ensure that the target mark on the rangefinder remains stable, even when your hand is shaking due to distance, cold or buck fever.

While vibrations of the image in the 6-power viewfinder caused by hand movement are reduced, the rangefinder simultaneously aligns the viewed image with the irradiated beam for faster, more precise ranging. Because you can direct the laser onto the target faster and more easily, the ease of measurement to a small subject should be improved. 

The VR Function begins immediately when the laser rangefinder is on, meaning there is no extra time spent trying to toggle between settings. Holding down the ranging button allows the user to continuously scan for 8 seconds. A fast measurement is received (in approximately half a second), regardless of the distance, thanks to Nikon's Hyper Read technology. The Monarch 7i VR has an effective measurement range of 8-1000 yards and displays measurements in .1-yard increments.

"The MONARCH 7i VR is one of the most exciting new products of Nikon's recent releases. Not only does this make it easier for hunters and shooters to range objects at long distances, we are able to offer it at a price point that doesn't break the bank. We strive to make practical advances in hunting optics and this is just the beginning of some exciting new things hunters can expect from Nikon," said Randy Garrison, Associate General Manager at Nikon Sport Optics.

 The Monarch 7i VR will ship with an MSRP of $399.95.
