Bushnell Adds 12x50 Binocular to Fusion 1600 ARC Line
Monday, March 28, 2011
Overland Park, Kan.- In 2010, Bushnell introduced the Fusion 1600 ARC laser range finding binoculars. The product was an instant hit with consumers who wanted quality optics with the latest in laser range finding technology, and was later named Optic of the Year in the 2011 NRA Golden Bullseye Awards,presented by American Rifleman Magazine.
In 2011, Bushnell has added a 12x 50mm model for extended-range glassing. The Fusion features BAK-4 roof prisms, a built-in battery life indicator, twist-up eyecups, and fully multi-coated optics. Its fully waterproof design meets IPX7 waterproof specifications, and the patented RainGuard® HD coating beads up moisture and prevents fogging, guaranteeing a clear view on unclear days.
The built in laser rangefinder measures distances from 10-1,600 yards, with +/- one-yard accuracy. It features ARC (Angle Range Compensating) technology, which calculates the angle to the target - from -90 to +90 degrees - and provides the "hold over" range for rifle shooters and the true horizontal distance for bow hunters. The Fusion offers five different modes of operation, including the Brush, BullsEye and Scan viewing modes and Bow and Rifle shooting modes.
An additional key feature is the Variable Sight-In Distance capability, also known as VSI™. In rifle mode, 100, 150, 200 and 300 yard sight-in distances are available to accommodate different shooting styles and preferences. Users can also choose between inches and MOA for holdover on longer shots.
The display incorporates state-of-the-art Vivid Display Technology™ for improved light transmission and resolution. With four adjustable intensity settings and high contrast, the Fusion provides legible distance readings in every light condition.
The Fusion 1600 ARC 12x 50mm laser range finding binoculars include a battery, neck-strap and carrying case for a suggested retail price of $999.99.
