HITS Optical clarity is excellent, target acquisition is fast, even through grass, and the readings are instantaneous. The 1200i proved dead-on accurate at a premeasured distance. It's compact, handy, and weatherproof.
Misses Even on the lowest setting, the LED display is bright enough to obscure a deer at last light. The TBR feature is cool (see below) but somewhat complex.
THE LOWDOWN This top-quality, all-purpose unit excelled in almost every test. It was the only model here that would return 1,000-plus-yard readings, and it has the best monocular by far. The TBR feature, which can be calibrated to a variety of cartridges, gives rifle hunters instant holdover values, making it especially useful for longer shots.
