Wildgame Innovations Halo XRT Laser Rangefinder Review
Overall this is a great rangefinder for the price, especially for bow hunting purposes
Over the years I have tried multiple range finders mostly for bow hunting purposes. Today I’m going to give you an honest review of the Halo XRT Rangefinder. It’s an inexpensive laser rangefinder with a declared range of up to 500 yards.
The Wildgame Innovations Halo XRT Laser Rangefinder has a stated range of up to 500 yards with 6x image magnification. It features range that is accurate to plus or minus one yard. I have tested this out to 300 yards to verify. I can say that the rangefinder is certainly accurate to within a yard for ranges up to 300 yards. My main purpose using the rangefinder is for bow hunting and accuracy works flawlessly at those ranges.
The rangefinder is easy to use with the push of a button you are measuring distance on your subject. However the reticle is black which makes using it in low light conditions tough. I scan the area I’m hunting and get ranges so when a shot presents itself I am ready to shoot. It has a manual focus by turning the eyepiece, which works well out to 500 yards. It features a scanning mode but is not very reliable and your better off just reading one object at a time.
The rangefinder is waterproof and fog-resistant, but I have noticed during several cold mornings that the lense would fog up. The case is coated in rubber armor, which provides excellent protection against bumps and falls. It is fairly durable as I have dropped mine out of a tree stand and it survived.
The Halo XRT is powered by a single CR2 lithium battery, which is not included in the box. The battery life is good, I usually have to change batteries once a season and I use mine often.
– Inexpensive Laser Rangefinder – Black reticle tough to read in low-light
– Lightweight,Compact and Durable – Suited Best For Bow Hunting Not Long Range Shooting
– Accurate out to 300 yards
– 6X Magnification with manual focus
Overall this is a great rangefinder for the price, especially for bow hunting purposes that I use mine for. I have learned how to use this to my advantage even with the few cons that it has. A long range shooter might prefer something a little more expensive but for short ranges this Halo XRT serves my purpose that I’m using it for.
