The obvious benefit of a rangefinder binocular combo is that you get to combine two essential pieces of hunting gear, minimizing the amount of “stuff” you are carrying around on any given hunt. It also allows you to glass and range at the same time, a helpful tool when you are watching animals that are on the move, time is of the essence, and you need to make quick decisions. The 10x50 Cabela's CX Pro HD Rangefinder Binoculars boast all the top quality glass features hunters have come to expect in good glass. They have multiple ED glass elements with advanced Ultra-Wide Band coatings to increase light transmission for brighter images. Phase-coated prisms with Dielectric prism coatings enhance resolution to produce natural, life-like colors. They are constructed with an extremely lightweight, yet rugged and corrosion-resistant magnesium alloy chassis and a durable rubber armored exterior that provides a solid, non-slip hold. Plus, the binoculars are Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed for fog proof and IPX7 waterproof protection. The 10x50 offering is versatile and caters to hunters all over the country in virtually any terrain providing enough magnification for long range glassing, but not so much that they aren’t practical for more close range hunting scenarios.
The rangefinder can range distances on reflective targets out to 1,800 yards and can accurately range deer, elk or other big game animals out to 750+ yards with ranging response times of 0.25 seconds. The rangefinder is engaged via ambidextrous ranging buttons on top near the focus wheel. The rangefinder is easy to read with a red illuminated OLED display menu offering 3 reticle choices. The CX Pro HD Rangefinder Binoculars provide a true horizontal distance mode that takes the angle into consideration and gives you the true distance that gravity will affect your projectile. One of 10 pre-loaded ballistic profiles can be selected to display ballistic outputs in either MOA, MIL, or inches out to 800 yards. And you can further customize your setup by selecting the mode of operation - Rifle, Bow, Standard, or Scan mode.
Hunters should expect these CX Pro HD Rangefinder Binoculars to weigh a little more than your regular binoculars - after all you have to figure in the weight of the rangefinder technology that is built in. For that reason I’d highly recommend picking up a binocular harness that takes the weight off of your neck and redistributes it over your shoulders. The Cabela's Hybrid Binocular Harness is a great solution.
For longer range glassing and hunting, the Cabela's CX Pro HD Rangefinder Binoculars are a great tool to have in your arsenal. They allow you to glass, evaluate, calculate and devise a solid plan to knock down the animal you have in your sights. You can check them out at Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops - online or in stores.
