Bows offer custom ballistics at your fingertips, and that's the philosophy behind Leupold's line of FullDraw rangefinders, which have been designed from the ground up (well, ground-glass up) to give you the best possible read on those custom ballistics. Leupold is perfecting the FullDraw line with the release of its new RX-FullDraw 5. Leupold may not have named this latest iteration after the abbreviation for a prescription, but bowhunters will find that the RX-FullDraw 5 is real big-game medicine.
What do we mean by custom ballistics? The RX-FullDraw 5 uses your personal ballistics, shot distance and angle compensation, the RX-FullDraw 5 to calculate laser-accurate ranges based on your gear. It uses technology like Leupold's proprietary Flightpath—which can not only range distances, it can also determine if your arrow will clear obstructions between you and your target.
The RX-FullDraw 5 has some significant advantages over its predecessor, the FullDraw 4. It offers an optional 20-yard pin solution, makes it simple for bowhunters to take clean shots at close range, even in thick brush or cover. It also boasts a Rain/Fog mode, which returns the last distance the laser reads. This, in turn, helps you get an accurate range in rain or fog. It also features a lowered minimum on velocity inputs, so archers who shoot traditional bows or lighter draw weights can still get accurate readings.
Optically, you can expect the same Leupold quality you know and love: exceptionally bright and clear images with a high light transmission OLED display and a 6x magnification makes ranging long distances easy. The unit can hit 1,200 yards on reflective targets and 1,100 yards on trees. It's 100% waterproof and extreme-climate tested, ensuring the rugged reliability that Leupold products are known for.
