When Leupold first introduced the RX-1000 laser rangefinder they took convention and accepted standards and blew them out of the treestand.  Combining an incredible 80 percent light transmission with Leupold-exclusive TBR technology, no other rangefinder could match the performanceof the RX-1000.  Until now.


Fueled by an exclusive new rangefinder engine technology, three years in the making, the RX-1000i with DNA (Digitally eNhanced Accuracy) propels laser rangefinding to new levels of precision, accuracy, and speed.  Get faster, more precise ranging - resolution to within 1/10 of a yard - against all background colors and textures.  125 yard maximum range in bow mode stretches the envelope for the longest shots.  Compact.  Bright.  Leupold tough.


Pick up the new Leupold RX-1000i with DNA.  Put it to your eye to see what ranging at the speed and accuracy of Leupold can mean for your next hunt.


For bowhunters and rifle hunters alike, the palm size RX-1000i with DNA fixes one of the biggest challenges for rangefinders: light transmission.  Where other rangefinders deliver 25% of available light to your eye, Leupold RX-1000i transmits a remarkable 80 percent.  And now with Leupold's proprietary Digitally eNhanced Accuracy (DNA), it does so with more speed and precision - accurate to within 1/10 of a yard.  You get an unbelievably bright, crystal clear target image unlike any other rangefinder available.  An OLED display keeps reticles and ranges visible with great contrast against all backgrounds and brush.  Small enough to fit in your pocket.  Rugged enough to handle the rigors of a hard hunt.  And now, fast enough to deliver the accuracy you need to fill your tag.

    Comments about Leupold RX-1000i with DNA Laser Rangefinder:

    Being my first Range Finder, I researched net overall reviews extensively. As with other Leupold Optics product line customer reviews, the RX-1000i write-ups continually stated strong performances, solid designs and great values in the Range Finder market place. My personal experiences with their binoculars and rifle\spotting scopes only helped to solidify my decision!

    The RX-1000i is a work of art in simplicity, ergonomics and function. Ranging objects has proven excellent accuracy, from its 5 yard near field collections, all the way out to 650yds (farthest I'm able to sight). Repeatability has been surprising and differentiating between a line of bushes (485yds)versus the tree line (500yds)was quick, easy and consistent. The 3-level OLED reticle display makes sighting objects quick and simple, from daylight through dusk. The 6 power monocular view clarity is excellent with full range diopter adjustment (a little stiff, but just needs more use). I find operation is very straight forward and menu selection quick and easy to access. The unit with battery weights in a little over 7 ounces and can easily fit in my shirt, pant or coat pocket. Although Leupold doesn't claim it is full waterproof, they state it is weather resistant and can be immersed for short duration. It does have a very solid feel and I'm confident it'll take whatever hunting abuse I can dish out.

    I really like my ranging buddy and will count on it to take accurate, long range shots when hunting game opportunities arise!
