Grand Prairie, TX (January 10, 2019) – When it comes to shooting arrows from a crossbow, precise ranging to the target is vital-especially when shooting at live targets such as a deer or elk. Missing the vitals by an inch because an improperly judged distance can mean the difference in being the camp hero and being the camp zero. But even accurate ranging can be tricky – lifting the rangefinder to your eye, taking a reading, then dropping the rangefinder and raising the crossbow to aim through the scope. A lot can happen during this transition, particularly on game that is constantly stopping and going. Halo Optics has built the solution for this dilemma with their new for 2019 XBS-1™ Laser Rangefinding Crossbow Sight.
This high-tech device combines best-in-class ranging capability into an ultra-clear sight so the hunter can bring his eye to aim, range the target and shoot, all in one simple motion. The unit brings all the cutting-edge features Halo rangefinders are known for, including Auto Acquisition, Angle Intelligence™, and Scan Mode. The Auto Acquisition feature provides instant readings to the target with the single touch of a button. Angle Intelligence™ is perfect for hunters working from tree stands, particularly when shooting sharp angles, as it calculates slope to target to determine the proper holdover for the angle-compensated distance. Lastly, Scan Mode allows the hunter to lock in multiple targets at different yardages providing four distance readings per second to each.
The XBS-1 mounts easily to any Weaver-style rail and includes a remote button for instant activation of the rangefinder. The maximum range for the rangefinder is 150 yards.
